This is one of the prettiest and longest Spring seasons we’ve had on the Gulf Coast, I keep saying aloud. Usually, the cherry tree blooms in February. Normally, the azaleas also bloom in February and are budded, bloomed, and drooping withered blossoms in the span of just two weeks. But this year! Ah, this year…
The shots are of blooms in our backyard. The orange fruit is Calamondines, a fruit that peels like a tiny orange but tastes as sour as a lemon. The Calamondin tree isn’t really bearing fruit right now; it’s starting to bud out. Those are the fruit that was up too high to reach, so there they stay.
The little green bud photo is of a bud on our lemon tree. Oh, when those citrus blossoms open…oh, my, the scent! I just know Heaven must smell like citrus blossoms.
I included a close-up of an azalea blossom, brought to me in a bouquet from our 12yo son. Fistfuls of azalea bouquets have been brought to me lately, by all four children.
And the other photos are of a beautiful tree next to the garden. We call it a cherry tree, but I don’t know if we’re right (no, it doesn’t bear fruit).
I have more photos of Spring to show you! Aren’t you so surprised? I’ll post them another time. For now, I need to get back to work. I’ve been working on overhauling my blog, so thank you for being patient with my sporadic posting.
Is your Spring showing up, too?
