Spring’s First Blossoms~Time for Gardening…
It’s so hard to believe that Spring is really here!
Everything is beginning to bloom.
Our home looks it’s very loveliest in the spring.
I always feel like we’re living in just a little bit of heaven.
Here in South Central Texas we are famous for spectacular wildflowers.
I really just cannot wait to take photos in our fields and along the roads and byways.
This morning, Christian discovered the first of our wildflowers.
They don’t look like much from a distance…but up close..Wow!
I sent Dear Son out into the yard this morning with my camera
because I’ve been scrambling to get some cleaning, sewing, and paperwork done.
I was afraid we would lose our light.
It’s been a little overcast and rainy here this week.
The tulip tree..just exploded into blossoms today!
One minute there were buds…
and the next day..there were just these huge delightful blossoms!
This variation of mint smells just like a chocolate mint patty!
My friend Laurie gave these to Rebekah for her own flower bed,
which she’s busily working on this week..
When the outdoor flowers start blooming,
we start thinking about flower beds and bedding plants.
Dear Hubby will be bringing me flowers to plant rather than cut flowers
on his way home from his cello lesson each week.
When I’ve enjoyed them awhile indoors…I’ll plant them outdoors!
Why not invest in blossoms for the whole spring?
I adore these Ranunculus blossoms.
The multitude of layers are so feathery and light.
I think they are just exquisite!
Spring seems to be making it’s appearance indoors too…
The fish tank water is doing wonders for my Freesia bulbs.
My birthday flowers have lost their blossoms, but of course,
we will transplant the bulbs to the flower beds too now that it’s warmed up outside.
Is it Springtime at your place yet? If not, enjoy a peek at our place.
Just a little taste of heaven..if you ask me! :o)
