Everything is blooming so nicely and scented so that when the breezes pass along the fragrance is carried to the neighbors. The lawn had its third mowing this morning, and after trimming and blowing the sidewalk and driveway free of grass clippings I poured a hot cup of coffee and sat for a while.
This crab-apple tree is planted for the memory of James’ mom. This year the blooms are the heaviest yet for this tree…..and the bumblebees today were busy! Marion would have loved this—better yet she would thrill to the jelly made from the fruit this fall.
I love this time of year, and this season the color and new growth has been a true tonic for the soul.
