TM, SB FLOWER FRIDAY

Today we are celebrating two events:

1. DORY'S BROS ARE HOSTING 
FLOWER FRIDAY!! 
WE ARE HAPPY TO 
SHOW YOU OUR BLOOMING YARD.




Red bud  blooming.  This tree is especially beautiful...why...
we didn't plant it.  All of a sudden one day we notice a twig
with tiny little *heart shaped leaves.


On Thursday Mom noticed the hearts were starting to pop out....they are so tiny.
*After the blooms are gone these gorgeous heart shaped leaves will
fill the tree.  The tree is about 9' tall...so just imagine  that much
tree filled with hearts.  It makes for lots of very special moments.

Below is a picture of one of the leaves from last year to show you their size.
Once the tree is full of hearts I'll take another photo


 Red maple

 Dogwoods

Periwinkle 
This week sweet Macey (The Three Little Pugs Grandgirl)
sent me a thank you card.....
Macey I love it and I love that you wrote me a note

  24. Your yard is blooming lovely Madi!

  25. Your yard blooms are so pretty. Mom would love to have a redbud tree. We have two of those purple ash trees that may one day be invaded by that evil bore. Mom wants to replace them with redbuds. If only she knew how to do a graft, she is sure our neighbor would share a few clippings with her:)

    Sweet little Macey, we all have her in our thoughts and prayers.
