Beauty All Around

Here are many photos from around our property. Some with brief descriptions.

One of several raspberry patches in the back yard area


Lilac first breaking out in blooms




I love this big apple tree. It's really striking and it's my view from the kitchen sink.




More, smaller apple trees



That unusual red bush, close up





I don't know what these crazy flowers are. I've never seen anything quite like them



And this weeping tree is a mystery still. I thought perhaps wisteria but it turns out I wouldn't know a wisteria if it ran into me


We were very excited to see this tree with fruit on it - Peaches!!


There is an abundance of blackberry bushes - surely enough for fresh eating, jam and pie fillings to can.







We are completely smitten with our new home!

Kristine.. your yard is lovely, really really lovely. I had such a warm happy feeling scrolling down through the photos and seeing all the bounty of beauty that the Lord has blessed my dear friend Kristine with♥

And about those crazy flowers... I have no idea what they're called, but I can tell you that I have a bunch of them in various colors in an old milk bottle right in the middle of my dining room table right at this very moment:-) If you find out what they are, let me know!
