My crabapples are finally in full bloom! Well, the two that are at the rear of the property anyway.
The crabapple trees in the garden haven't bloomed yet...still waiting...
The scent of this 'Centurian' crabapple is intoxicating. Mine are the ugliest shaped trees,
but when they bloom, they are so beautiful...when they leaf out...not so much.
But their fragrance is reason enough to put up with these ugly trees.
Out by the pasture fence I have three chairs that I painted different colors
and left out to
rot age in the elements.
I'm looking forward to seeing what they will look like by the end of the Summer
after sitting in the sun and rain all season.
Here they sit with my pots of white geraniums.
And I think they will look gorgeous with armloads of peonies on them.
They are definitely not study enough for sitting.
But I do like how they prettify the pasture fence.
I had to share a couple of shots I took of these visitors to my garden a
couple days ago.
I have lots of robins in the garden and they are my constant companions
as I work. I love the birds in my garden, and wonder if they come back year after year
to nest in this same garden...and if they are the same friends I made last year?
I will be taking another break from blogging for awhile as I get ready to go to Farm Chicks (flea market
in Spokane, Wash.) I have a lot of work in the garden to do before I go, and packing and such.
I will be missing White Wednesday, but I will be coming by and saying hi to you all before I go and
after I get back.
Hugs to you all!
