it is springtime!
the crabapple tree is abloom. this all-year round delight is my favorite tree in our backyard. it renders a spray of pearly white clustered flowers in the spring, provide shade during summer and food for our winged friends in the fall. in the winter, it can be a stunning sight after a fresh snowfall.
an attention-getter that never fails to render such lovely flowers is the bleeding heart. it is a string of pink heart-shaped flowers in an arched stem. it is the first to bloom in our little garden.
and of course there is the japanese viburnum, a shrub that yields white dainty flowers so fragrant you simply cannot ignore.
thank you God for spring!
