This is next to the Apple tree where many birds love to perch. I'm not sure what kind of tree but I admire the tender pink flowers.
I moved here to the mountains in the winter. Flowering trees around the property were covered in snow. When the weather began warming up, we were surprised by the beautiful blooms. Perhaps all were planted years ago and we get to enjoy them.
Whatever the name, it's pretty! Hummingbirds fly around here.
I noticed a Rose bush near my garden next to all the trees. I don't know much about Roses but this was a pleasant surprise! It recently bloomed and I saw the vivid flower from a distance.
Now my edible garden update: I've been waiting for veggies for what seems like the longest time. I'm new to vegetable gardening so I'm recording progress here. I started organic Tomatoes from seed indoors. I have several varieties including Heirloom and all seem to be growing strong on raised beds. Roma Tomatoes used to be a 2" baby and now it's over a foot with flower blossoms, same with my Cherry Tomatoes. OK where are the fruit? I get impatient for harvest!
I purchased Tomatillo from the nursery about a month ago because I realized we have to make Salsa Verde and I didn't have a packet of seeds to plant. This was 4" when I bought it, today it's larger with flower blossoms. My Jalapeno and Serrano are taking their time, hopefully I'm doing this right. Peppers seem to be a challenge.
Everbearing strawberries. I have a few in the raised bed and 2 plants in baskets. Some strawberries are popping up. I look forward to when they're ripe and ready, they were deliciously sweet last time we had them!
