Spring has Sprung

Spring has sprung in my garden. Let me take you on a tour.

The apple tree is full of blossoms. It looks like we will a bumper crop this year.

I have many, many roses. This is the climber that is on the arbor over the gate that leads to our pool. It has the most wonderful aroma, the old fashioned rose scent, my favorite. This climber is near our bedroom....I love it when it wafts into our room.

Another view of the delicate pink roses with the wonderful scent.

This rose is near our front door. It makes a lovely greeter for our guests.

Another front yard rose...another welcoming site as you come to our front door. I think I have about 20 rose bushes in all colors and sizes spread throughout our yards. Not all of them are in bloom yet, but all of them are covered in buds.

Here are more apple blossoms. This is Michael's apple tree. This area was left free of plants, it just contained dirt. I called it Michael's area and he spent hours and hours digging in the dirt creating roads for his cars. The area was littered with Matchbox cars and Tonka trucks. Michael also planted many, many seeds from his apples over the course of a few years hoping to grow an apple tree in his area. A few years ago we bought a tree and planted it together. It has always been known as Michael's tree and he always gets to eat the first apple of the season.

This is Michael eating the very first apple harvested from the tree. This photo was taken 3 years ago. Look how little the apple is!!

Roses, Roses, Roses....nature's perfume.

I love the sunlight filtering through the vine.

Cherry blossoms. This tree is in our pool yard and it looks like we are going to have a huge crop this year. Last year the cherries never made it into the house. We would sit by the pool and pick and eat cherries right then. Our intent was to pick and bring in the house, but they were so good, they never made it inside!! We may have enough to share with our family friends this year, maybe!
