Our Indian Hawthornes are all bloomed out.
It makes the backyard so pretty when they bloom.
The bees love them.
Our neighbors behind us have this trumpet vine growing over their fence. They had their fence replaced a couple of years ago, and all the trumpet vine got torn down. It was massive back then. The first season after the new fence, they had a teeny-tiny bit come back and peek over the fence. It's getting bigger and spreading wider with each spring and summer.
Isn't it gorgeous? I love ORANGE flowers!
I was so thrilled to see my Rosemary had made it through the late snow and ice. She's all bloomed out with her tiny blue/purple flowers. Yep, she's going to make it. What a hardy girl she's been. She started out as a 6-inch plant from the nursery. I've used her in many meals and given many stems away for friends to use. One lady asked for a bunch to use in a bath. She said if you place several stems in a hot bath and sit in it, it cures constipation! I've never tried it, but she sounded very sure of herself.
And this is a wild raspberry vine that grows in our front beds. They're insidious and have prickly thorns and are mostly a nuisance, but they get these pretty little white flowers with a pinkish tinge.
Then, of course, there are the rose bushes. We lost two over the winter, but we have tons of buds that are about to bloom out there on the three that lived in the back yard. I can hardly wait to see them and pick a few to bring inside to enjoy.
My next post will be a BIG doily Tah-Dah! See you then.
