I have some Spring Blossoms from my yard to share with you today. Some of these have already faded and are gone, but they were so beautiful while they lasted!All of these are perennials that I have out in my yard and I always love it when they all start blooming and there is hope that warmer weather is coming!
These were the blossoms on my peach tree. I went out and took these pictures and then that night we had a horrible windstorm and some of the blossoms blew right off the tree and a lot of the other ones shriveled up. But I think that I will still have a pretty good crop of peaches this year! I hope so anyway.
This mini carnation plant is new to my yard this year. I planted it down by a small pond that we have in the back yard.
I do not know the name of this tree, but it is a BIG tree that I have out on the side of my house and these blossoms smell absolutely divine! My neighbors can all smell them and they always comment on how beautiful they smell! I think that this tree smells quite a bit like a lilac bush in full bloom.
I picked an armful of the blossoms off of my tree and put them in this pitcher. I took them inside and put them in my kitchen and the smell was unbelievable. I wish I could send it through the computer to you! The only bad thing about these blossoms is that they are not a good cut flower. They start falling off after the second day! :( But they are sure amazing while they last!
I went out yesterday and planted 4 different pots. I think that the weather is good enough that they will be okay now. But if it gets too cold, I can always go out and cover them. I planted 3 flower pots and one long herb planter. I bought my tomatoes, but I think I will wait a few more days to see what the weather is going to be. It is supposed to be cold and rainy again for the next few days. I still have many more pots to plant and I hope to get most of them done over the next week or two!
Have you planted your flowers or garden where you live? I love this time of year…it’s when all the weeds start coming that isn’t so fun!
Have a HAPPY day and thanks for visiting!
