Spring Time Flowers

Nothing says Spring like Cherry Blossom’s, Lilac’s, and Magnolia’s. I love this time of year. All the tress are in bloom and the flowers smell amazing. This year we had a very late Spring, and all the flowers did not start blooming until early May. I like to take long walks and stop and look at every flower and smell them, thank god my husband is so patient. LOL!

This a closeup of the Cherry Blossom’s my family’s cherry tree. These flowers smell so amazing and they produce yummy Delicious cherries. This year is going to be a late season for Cherries, but I hear they are going to be very sweet, and plentiful. The wait just might be worth it! 😉

One of my favorite smelling flowers, the Lilac. Nothing says it’s Spring to me like Lilacs, and the purple Lilac is such a pretty color.

Kate’s Beautiful Pink Rose!

Just as I promised in my previous rose post, here is a picture of my Pink Rose called “Rosa.”
This rose bush has done amazing this year, I have so many blooms on it. This time last year I think I only got five blooms total.

Look for my upcoming post of a picture of my Black Bacarra rose bush. I have been so excited about this rose bush, I just can’t wait to see my black roses in full bloom. I just checked earlier today and I have six blooms starting on it already. Woot Woot!!

The Cherries Are Almost Ready!

I’m so excited the cherries are almost ready! =-)

I have two big cherry trees in my backyard and every year (usually in the dead of Winter) I start dreaming about eating fresh picked cherries from my cherry trees.

These cherries will be perfect in about a week.

Here is a full view of one of my cherry trees. Don’t mind the pie plates LOL.. I have to hang pie plates in the trees to keep the darn Black Birds and Robins from eating all my cherries. They really like them too. 😉

Kate’s Beautiful Peach Rose!

Happy Monday Everyone,

I thought this would brighten everyone’s Monday, by showing you my beautiful Peach Rose named “Brandy” and yes that really is the name of this rose bush.

Roses are my favorite flower, I can not get enough of them. I have three other rose bushes that are ready to bloom any day now and I will post pictures of my Red Rose Bush called “The Imperial,” my Pink Rose Bush called “Rosa,” and my Black Rose Bush called the “Black Baccara” when they do.

Here is a close up of my Peach Rose. I just planted this rose bush two months ago and I already have a rose and another rose getting ready to bloom.
