Spring is upon us with apple and pear trees in full bloom.
The recent winds have tumbled down pink tulip petals which are strewn across the white apple petals creating a patchwork
on the green grass.
wisk around visiting scented geranium flowers and visit the petunias open throats... then dart up to a bare branch to rest.
The goldfinches steal dandelion seeds
while chickadees fuss over the sunflower seeds in the feeders.
Crisp mints spring forth and the comfrey flower bells dance in the breeze while bumblebees hang on...
The wisteria flowers drop down like huge
bunches of grapes from the rod support like drapery valences while the fragrance from nearby lilacs and stock mingle.
The spanish (stoechas) lavenders are in bloom
dancing in the breeze while zonal pink geraniums are basking in the dappled sunlight between showers.
Time for a cup of mint tea!
