Ha roo, pups and pup-ettes! It's me - Zim! Springtime has hit Kansas and you know what that means! Yeah! Time for drinking coffee out on the deck!
Oooh, I love mornings spent like this! Ha ROO!
OK, just kidding. Have you seen Jazz and Dixie's blog lately? It's Cherry Blossom time in Japan, and those Beagle babes have posted some lovely pictures! Surf on over and check them out!
Here at our house, we don't have any bee-roo-tiful Cherry Blossoms, but we do have a Redspire Pear tree, an ornamental fruit tree, and I told Jazz and Dixie I'd post some pictures of it! The blossoms might get fuller, but with the storms that have been sweeping through here (rain, thunder, lightening, 40 mph winds...) we didn't want to take any chances with waiting!
Here's a shot Mom took this morning; it was raining so it's kinda bleak-looking. You can see how nicely it's shaped, though.
And here's a close-up from yesterday. Aren't they pretty? Can you smell them?
Dave likes it after the ornamental fruit has ripened and falls off in Winter and is smooshed on the sidewalk. He says after it's fermented a bit, they're really tasty. They're OK, but I'm not as into them as he is.
We have some Redbud trees starting to bloom, too. They look all purple-y and pretty! Here's a branch silhouetted up against our house.
Pretty cool, huh? We'll take pix of more stuff as it blooms. I think Dave and Mom took some of the Texas quince; Dave will share those soon, I'm sure!
Hope you all enjoy the pretty pix! Happy blossom-time!
