Spring is here!

ahh... how refreshing to have cool air and warmer temperatures. God's creation is praising Him in a very way... and my heart desires the same!
This is one of my favorite flower trees.... it is not my favorite because willow trees are the ones that I love the most but the Ornamental Pears are just beautiful. We have two mature trees and then bloom twice a year .... in the spring when there are no leaves .... a gorgeous and massive white *flock* comes to bring the good news of warmer weather.... it is the first tree to bloom in the Carolinas., I believe. Mine are not full bloom yet but because I was walking around taking pictures and enjoying the this blessed day, I thought to share with you any ways.*grin*
We have a *pomar* . It is a word used in Portuguese to discribe a place where only fruit trees are planted. Our is not fully mature yet because we started planting only couple years ago. We have 11 pears , 11 apples and we plan to plant this year, 11 cherries and 11peaches. I am not sure what we willbe doing with all the crops but I will think about when the time comes. *grin*
The pictures above is my mature peach tree. It is 5 years old and yeild mature fruits . All my trees are organicly grown so the fruits don't look marvelous but they sure tastes the best and they are good for us.*smiles*

Daffondills are the first bubs to comeout of the ground and I am glad they bloom twice a year... I love the delicate look and the leaves.

I have thousands , I mean THOUSANDS of bulbs planted. We normally replant every fall 1000 to 2000 bulbs and some times they mutiply or they dissapear...sigh.... I think it has to do with the weather.
Next week we will be starting our garden... I am soo excited and I can't wait to be bare foot onmy soft garden.... it is wonderful!*grin*
