Fruits and Flowers



Yesterday I got a chance to drive over to our new place and get a closer look at the yard (it rained toward the end of the auction, so I didn’t have a chance then). I was delighted to get to meet and admire the fruits and flowers throughout our yard! In case you can’t read the captions, Here’s my inventory list so far…

Flowers
Irises
Rhododendrons
Roses
Peonies
Wisteria
Forsythia
Lilacs
Tulips
Magnolia Tree

Fruits
Apple trees (4)
Pear tree (1)
Currant bushes (3)
plus
Wild grapes
Wild blackberries
Wild rasberries

Does anyone know what the pink flower is in the right, lower corner of the flower collage? It’s kind of a stunted looking tree with these lovely, faintly scented pink fronds all over – I’ve never seen it before, but it’s beautiful!

I couldn’t be more delighted at the yard and gardens – it will be a wonderful place to grow children and flowers. 🙂

Next week – house pictures!

    I'm so happy your are getting flowers and a mature orchard. Our new property is sorely lacking in that aspect, but it has lots of potential. I am going to miss my established flower beds, especially the spring bulbs.

    I'm sure Harriet would be so pleased to know that her home is going to a family that will make wonderful treasured memories there.And that the fruits of her labor are so appreciated !

    I can't get quite a good view, but could it be lavender?

    oh my, enjoy your house.. it seems to be the kind of place where someone kept a lovely little home some years back… the kind of place where you could almost recreate the life of the 1930's or 40's. I can just imagine a woman in a housedress and a feedsack apron joyfully tending to those flowers♥
