It took several weeks, but my allergies seem to have finally abated. Thank God. I’m not sure how much more I could have taken. Funny thing is, our yard is still in bloom with something new every day. It’s fun to see what sprouts up next, and now that some of the early blooms have died off in tandem with my allergies, I’m starting to narrow down just exactly who is the culprit. As of now, the flowering pear trees are my prime suspect, but I guess I’ll just have to wait and see how the rest of the spring plays out.
In the meantime, it was nice to head outside for a little while today to take pictures of some of the new flowers without my head exploding. There is literally something blooming in just about every inch of our yard, and even though I’ve been too busy to even think about planting a garden this year, it looks as though we just might have a bumper crop of rhubarb, peaches, and grapes.
I can’t even tell you how ridiculously excited I am about the peaches and grapes! 🙂
So, for your viewing pleasure, here are a few of the newest blooms I found today…
