Country Trees in Bloom

 blooming trees

I’m so happy that spring is truly here. When the dogwoods and red bud trees blossom, I feel yet again, that I’m living in a little bit of heaven on earth.

The white blossoms seem so bright in contrast to the dark woods behind them.

I decided to take a few photos of this short moment as the blossoms will give way to leaves before you know it. Midnight, Rebekah’s cat loves the early morning coolness too.. I thought I’d get a couple of pictures of her too while I was at it.  

She’s probably out bird watching. The birds flock to our pond every spring and she has, sadly, eaten more than a few.

Christian took photos of the pear tree in bloom.

Camilla bushes

The camelia bush is in full bloom..and fading, I’m afraid. Her ‘act’ is over.

But these bushes have just bloomed in all their stunning beauty only this week!  I’m amazed at how carefully planned the flowering plants have been arranged in our yard. I didn’t plant these bushes.
They were here when we bought the property.

How someone must miss their flowering bushes and trees! We will have new plants blooming, one after, the other in a glorious procession.

After these white bushes..will come the azaleas..then the crepe myrtles..one by one..and finally the wildflowers will fill the pasture.

It’s a lovely ‘show’ every year!  How about you? What's blooming in your backyard? I'd love to see it, so feel free to post a picture via a thumbnail linky here. :o)

Hi Donna. Great photos. Those flowering bushes are just awesome. I have to get in my backyard and see what is blooming out there too. Enjoy the beauty of your yard, I know I will. Take care.

AHHH - my comment did not save... Your white bush may be a bridal bush. For us, bluebonnets are spring, DeWitt Co is full of them right now and we have a nice clump on the front lawn.

Welcome to Comin' Home! If you lived nearby, I'd invite you over to my neck of the woods for a nice long chat and a cup of tea out on the deck. But since we can't do that, I hope you'll stay and look around. I love learning new things and sharing what I learn with friends. Comin' Home is where I share tips from my many projects. Let's have some fun together! XO Donna
