Here is my BBC ... Backyard Blossom Count for March 2011.
The pear tree is popping out and hosting company.
I missed the apple tree, but it was full of pink blossoms a week ago.
The dogwoods are just opening this week. This one still has that greenish, "I'm barely beyond bud" look.
I used to know this one, but don't feel like looking it up at 10:40 pm when I have to be in Orlando by 8:00 am tomorrow.
Ack! Why I am blogging and not sleeping?
The flower of course.
The giant finger is simply a size reference.
Man oh man I love this scrubby tree.
Love carving it into whimsical sticks. Search the blog if you are curious.
The first bloomer around here is usually the Carolina Jessamine ... I should have named one of my girls that.
Such a pretty name.
Jessamine loves climbing up over other plants and then covering them in yellow blossoms in the spring.
Jessamine is a really great native flowering vine. Just sit back and it will do all the work.
It's high, low ... just all over the place right now.
Hog plums are blooming and buzzing near the old FFA pig pen. This tree has a buzzy soundtrack as you walk past.
There's a pasture down the road that looks like it is sporting a cloud on a stick. A very round symmetrical hog plum is in full bloom and it is just gorgeous.
It looks like an incredible crop is again in the making.
Soon I will be posting about blueberry this, blueberry that, yada, yada ...
Well that's about it from PFHQ where all the flowers are good looking, the dog is intelligent, and the weirdness is above average.
As I whined about earlier in this post, I need to be in Orlando (a 2 hour ride) by 8 for a state Science Fair training and then I hope to bask in the glory of the Basspro Outdoor Center after the training is complete.
When in Rome ...
