I am going to take a little detour from photos from our trip and share a few from my gardens. I know I do this every year and they all probably look the same every year but I get so excited to see everything coming up and the first blooms appearing that I have to show you!
Our May Day tree is getting so huge. It just about spans the west side of the backyard. It smells so good which is surprising as I usually am allergic to most floral scents.
The apple tree is also putting on a show. Les did some pruning when it was at the bud stage so I brought a few branches inside and put them in water. I enjoyed a few days worth of blossoms this way!
I planted some tulip bulbs last fall and so far the deer haven’t eaten them. They are shorter than my tulips a couple of years ago but just as beautiful!
Of course the little violets are up as well as these little tiny daffodils and I have no idea where the daffs came from.
The trollius plants are just about to bloom. They always put on a show so I am looking forward to it.
My peonies are growing quickly now. I follow people on Instagram from the USA that have peonies blooming already! That always makes me a little jealous. 🙂
And I have a few succulents in a corner of my patio. The white and glass stepping stone was a Mom’s Day gift from my grandsons. The best colour in my gardens!
