Nature Friday

We are joining Rosy for Nature/Flower Friday~

Right outside our backdoor, the Crab Apple Tree is in bloom~
 We found Creeping Phlox flowering~
 We never get tired of seeing the beautiful purple Money Plants~
 The Celandine Poppy wildflower is in bloom~
 And we found our first mushroom!
 And we found tiny Bluets~
 The Azalea is blooming at Carousel, the Llama's house!
 And we found Virginia Bluebells~
 Mom bought this Gardenia a couple of weeks ago and it was loaded with buds.  Normally, one by one all of the buds fall off without opening because she doesn't provide the correct conditions.  This time she must have done something right because a bud opened and our entire living room smells wonderful and we think that more buds will be opening!  YAY!
 Her latest puzzle is all about nature~
 Happy Friday, everybuddy☺
Love ya lots♥

You sure have some beautiful flowers around your neighborhood!

It is wonderful to see all the flowers opening around your neighbourhood now that Spring has finally arrived. We love the Blueits they really are pretty and your Crab Apple Tree. We live on Crab Tree Hill but there are no Crab Apple Trees here at all. I will have to walk around our garden and show you the flowers we have coming out. Have a lovely weekend.

Hugs Susie & Treacle xx

The flowers are beautiful and I'm sure you left a lot of pee-mail. Good for you.

Have a woof woof day and weekend. My best to your mom. ♥

Sue said...

What beautiful flowers you found on your walk. We've had rain every day this week so the flowers look pretty sad but maybe they'll dry out over the weekend.

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Good luck with the gardenia! You have such lovely flowers all around you--and we're impressed that you know their names. BOL!

We can't believe how many beautiful flowers are blooming there! Bluets are one of my favorites because I always remember seeing them when we were growing up in Massachusetts. They make me think of my Mom, who loved all flowers. I was so pleased when I saw them in our yard here too, and I think they are starting to bloom here too (I haven't been out to check since it's been raining!!).

Wow, so many beautiful flowers today, Molly. We love the crabapple blossoms and the azaleas best. We haven't seen much in bloom around here lately. We think we have had too much rain.

Everything is beautiful even the grass in your yard. We can just imagine the smell must be intoxicating wonderful.

I LOVE doing puzzles. I'll be right over, and become instantly obsessed. The gardenia... heaven... and those bluets are so pretty.

Beautiful flowers in bloom where you live!

I love gardenias too. They smell so good!

KB said...

Oh my goodness!!! All of a sudden you are at least a month ahead of us in terms of beautiful flowers. I adore your crab apple tree, probably because I remember them from my childhood but they are very rare out here. When I find one, I know that the bears will be there in the fall - because apples are a rare treat for them.

Thanks so much for brightening my snowy day!
