  1. Beautiful! We planted a redbud tree two years ago, and so far no flowers. Maybe next year!

    1. I bet next year it will bloom! We had a friend in town give us little saplings that came up naturally in their yard. I don't think they bloomed for several years.

    1. don't you love how wispy they are? There are a lot of them around here and they all opened in the last few days.

    2. Yes, I do! There is a flowering plum in bloom in the back yard and a weeping cherry just starting out front and I noticed the dogwood out front is working on its buds too. Then it's the Kwanzan Cherry and the crabapple yet. ♥♥♥ Spring flowering trees!

    3. we have a purple leaf plum that still needs to bloom...and a dogwood that is days away. Yes, it's the best part of spring. We have a magnolia...which is my favorite. I really want that pussy willow, though. I should look for one at that garden center!

      Delete
    4. Oh I'd love to have a magnolia! There was a black pussy willow here when we moved here but it's not as pretty as the regular ones. Ha, we cut it down completey one year thinking good riddance but it's just as big as ever! sigh

      Delete
    5. There are black ones? Wow...I didn't know! I think I'd like the grey ones better. I'm going to look those up on google! Bigger than ever? haha...I guess it loved the massive pruning. ha.

  7. We don't have Redbud trees.
    I didn't even know about this type of tree.

    We are still scraping off the frost from our car windows.
    But the sun peeked out today!

    Now I'm on the hunt for Redbud trees.

    1. I would think they would grow fine there. I'm surprised they aren't around! If you google them you will see how wild and wispy they are...and they spread naturally! We have them through the countryside natually and along the highways.

  8. Oh, by the way...my toes are looking pretty good.

  9. Geez your backyard is nice too
    Not just a zoo
    Except maybe the tighty whitey guy
    But the wind can make those fly
    The nuggets are still singing at your bay
    Only 3 hours left and then a rest can come their way..haha

    1. happy birthday again (lol)

      Delete
    2. yep..the zoo has to be pretty for Dr. Do. lol.

      And thankfully things are in bloom and leaves sprout on trees
      blocking my view of the tightie whities!

      twenty eight, right?
      that should fill you with fright.
      haha.

      Delete
    3. LOL another reason why bloom
      Does not bring doom
      Means the snow it gone
      And no tightie whities can be seen across the lawn
      Not quite that old yet
      So you'd lose that bet
      Still a year before that comes to be
      As only 27 at my sea

      Delete
    4. What did I do, add 2 years to your birthday?
      Well, we can't have that, oh the dismay
      ha. Hope year 27 is just plain fun
      as you email and rhyme off your little buns. ha.

      Delete
    5. 27!! OH dear, you are so young ! Im singing the song lol

      Delete
    6. Last I checked 28 to 27 was only one year
      You doing that funky american math I fear?...lol
      Year 27 could shape up to be quite fun
      Depending upon what is done
      The rhymes will come either way though
      As the cat will always have his ten cents worth at his show

      Singing the song how nice
      I hope you don't charge a price..haha

      Delete
    7. No, silly Pat let me explain
      you were 26 before your birthday came
      I asked if you were turning 28
      and you said 27 was the going rate.
      I added 2 instead of one
      and that's how it was done.
      lol.

      Yep, I think this will be a great year for you
      never know what fun things could come due!

      Delete
    8. Pat! I sang my song free, like a gift lol!

      Delete
    9. I suppose that explanation will do
      As you tried to double the time at my zoo
      Are you trying to make me catch you?..lol
      So I can no longer give a clue
      And make fun
      As this year with the five you'll add a one..hahaha
      Hmmm who knows it could be
      As I continue blithering on at my sea

      Free I like that
      So does the cat

    2. If you're in the right part of town, we have pear trees and plum trees. My sister-in-law has a peach tree that always blooms beautifully. I remember the dogwoods and redbuds and apple trees from Ohio when I lived there. I lived in a little town named Middleport along the Ohio river. Greens were so green there! :)

      Delete
  11. Our redbuds have already peaked, and, oh my, they were especially gorgeous this year!

    1. They don't seem to last long but are one of the earliest to bloom here. Looking forward to crabapples and dogwoods next!

  13. We are in Michigan today and there are beautiful flowering trees everywhere. I'd never heard of Redbud trees, but I wouldn't be surprised if some of what we see are Redbuds. Beautiful!

  18. How lovely to see your beautiful blooms. Very dark and ugly here in CA, so it is nice to be able to look upon some cheery spring color in someone else's neck of the woods.

  19. What is wonderful is how Spring seems to be perfectly co-ordinated all across the northern hemisphere, The seasons bring us closer, unite us and warm away our differences.

  20. I always enjoy it when the Redbud trees are in bloom. They line the bit of the interstate I drive every day. I have one very sad tree in the backyard. It is listing to the right because every year another branch on the left dies. I think it will just tumble over one day.
