season of pink trees







Yes, while I've been lying in bed almost too sick to notice, spring has been arriving in earnest. Top two, a dwarf peach (foreground, with plum? behind) across the street at Steve & China's; two of our plum tree, where a flock of small birds appeared to be nibbling on blossoms today; and a magnolia one block over.

Very nice pictures, I especially like the top one! Where is Graton, in Sonoma County?

When I check out the gardening blogs in North and South Carolina it is so easy to be envious of your seasons, could you send a little spring up to the midwest at least by the end of march would be nice

Just what a winter-weary gardener needs...some pink trees. Mine are currently white--with the latest dump of snow on them. Oh well...your post cheered me up immensely!

Lovely early pictures of your flowering trees. Something we have to wait for in zone 6. The peach and magnolia look especially nice.

Bring on the pink! We have a bit to wait yet, but it is nice to enjoy your blooms.
Hope you are feeling better!

The beautiful plum tree in full bloom in the top picture is, believe it or not, a volunteer! Some lovely bird flew by and left a dropping pre- fertilized and 7 years later this is the result. The peach tree in the front is a true genetic dwarf that is about 22 years old. Each year it gives me a large quantity of full sized peaches that make the best peach jam I've ever had. The peach tree is in the rose garden and after it's blooming season it becomes gradually surrounded by beautiful David Austin roses. The pink goes on along with a little yellow and a deep magenta red. China

Living in Zone 5 we are more than a couple weeks away from such colors. Thanks for sharing makes me even more anxious for spring to begin here in Nebraska.
