Blooms Sweet Blooms

We are finally getting gorgeous weather here in NY the past 3 days has been in the eighties! All the trees are really starting to bloom and it looks so beautiful, especially after the winter we had! Yesterday I spent all afternoon working in the yard doing some much needed clean up, and of course I had to stop to take some photos to share with you :)


This is one of our flowering plum trees that we have in the front of our house. Mr. Northern planted all the daffodil bulbs around the trees a few years ago and each year they get fuller and fuller.


          Forsythias that we planted in our wooded area in the front.



                                 Daffodils in the front island




Just planted the patunias in the urn we have in our back yard, I can't wait to see them in a few weeks.




We planted these three Yoshino Cherry trees in our back yard about 5yrs ago, by this weekend they should be in full bloom.



             The bees were buzzing around me when I took this one.



All photos were taken using my Nikon D5000 and some were softened using picnik.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my little tour, Martina

You'll never see pictures of my backyard because it is barren. Yours, however, is gorgeous! I am so jealous!

Your forsythia, in particular, is beautiful. Forsythia is one of my favorites. I hope you use some cuttings inside!

Your trees and flowers are stunning. I love all the beautiful variety of things that you can grow. The desert has such limits. I did plant some petunias, they do well. Yours are fabulous in the urn. Hugs, marty

Can't believe how fresh and new everything looks. We have green grass finally but have had so much rain that the gardens are just mud. Your house is wonderful and the landscaping looks perfect! I love a well-manicured yard. I am assuming you didn't receive my second attempt at a Paypal invoice. I'm not sure what is going on with them...let me know if you want to continue with this hassle of a transaction! ~Ann
