One spring morning in pictures

April 26, 2008

I took my camera along on our walk to school yesterday morning.  The weather could not have been more glorious this week – in the seventies and bright sunshine all day.  While most of these flowering trees and bushes will peak in the next week, I’m happy to have captured this brief moment in my and my neighbor’s gardens.

 

Our lilac bush is by our kitchen window and the heavenly scent drifts in on those warm spring days.

 

Is there anything prettier than flowering Kwanzan cherry trees in the spring?

 

Weigela “Midnight Wine” is simply stunning with its deep red leaves and delicate pinkish-white flowers.

 

Our neighbor’s Viburnum “Nannyberry” bush soaks up the sun.

 

Our mesclun mix is coming along well.  It’ll soon be time to thin these out, much to our guinea pigs’ delight. 

 

The oregano from our herb garden multiplies with very little encouragment.  You need to cut it back occassionally or it can take over your herb garden.
