Remember Stormy showed you our "Skidmore Lilacs" yesterday? As she said, they're in the southeast section of our garden. Here's a look at what's cooking down in the southwest corner!
"Lilacs to the left of me, Texas Quince to the right...
Here I am ... stuck in the middle with you! (Ha roo roo roo.)"
Those are Old Fashioned Lilacs in the corner. Want a close-up? Here you go:
Old Fashioned Lilacs
They're a deeper, richer color than the ones Stormy showed you yesterday!
Also sort of along that southern perimeter are the Eskimo Viburnum. They're in full swing right now; here's a look at their blooms:
Mom likes the bright white blooms against the dark green leaves. Me? I like that it looks like snow! Ha roo!
Another white bloom in the backyard is the Juddi Viburnum. They're up by the deck -
They are as fragrant as the lilacs and Mom wishes their blooms would last longer!
While I'm on a white bloom kick, click here to see what the Mohican Viburnum looked like a month ago ... and look at them now:
The first of the Mohican Viburnum blooms
I really like the Mohican Viburnums because of Ammy. (Please click here to read why.) Speaking of whom, let me turn things over to her!
Thank you, Zimmie, and hi everypuppy and everykitty! Since Zim and I are both redheads, I thought I'd share pictures of the Redbud trees! I thought it was more fitting before Dave told me Redbuds aren't really red, they're sort of pinky-purple. Bipeds have a confusing way of naming things, don't they? Oh, well. I'll go with them anyway.
Here I am, posing under the Redbuds in our front yard:
We have an Austrian pine on the next tier down, over the retaining wall. You can see it behind the blooms, plus some of its needles got lodged in the flowers.
More Redbud blooms
We'll return to our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow. Until then, keep it serene!
(And play bows from Zimmie!)
