Spring is in the Air

Mom's Guard Gargoyle
As you walk up to mom's front door this who greets you, Baby.  Isn't he adorable!

Tonight I was over at mom's working on other stuff but beading.  Before I headed home mom and I decided to walk around her yard and I had my camera with me, so pictures to share.  I am so glad to have nice weather coming our way because I miss being outside taking pictures.

So, for your viewing pleasure - pictures!

Just so you know mom and I have a tendency to name our trees - yes, we know we are weird.  This is "Chichi" (named for my aunt), a weeping something.  This is the first year mom and I have noticed the pussy willow sort of branch coming out the top of the tree.  We are going to have to find a tall ladder so we can get closer to take pictures of the limb.

This is a close up of the buds on "Peary Como" the Bradford Pear mom has in her front yard.  This is the tree that was damaged in the large wind storm we had last year.  The tree lasted the winter is blooming so mom isn't going to have "Peary" removed.

This is "Merdy", named after my grandma.  This is a weeping something tree, mom is in too much pain right now to look for the paperwork on the trees she bought, so sorry I can't give you the proper tree types.  This tree has gone crazy, must have good water and fertilization.

This is "Lucy" mom's crab apple tree.

This is the bud from a Moscow Lilac.  The lilac bush use to be pretty scrawny until mom cut it back and then it came back with a vengeance.  Love how it looks now.

These are some of the tulips mom planted last year that are coming up now.
I hope you enjoyed the springy pictures.  I am off.  Have a wonderful night!


  1. Perfect spring pictures - love the name for the Bradford Pear. Hope you are feeling better.

  2. I just love that you two name your trees. You're my kinda people! :)
