Petal Storm

What a difference a few weeks make....

Late October 2018
January 2019
March 2019
May 2019.... today in fact!

This is a chestnut tree and it has glorious pink blossoms.....

which are just forming up ......

...and some are in a hurry!  
When they are fully open, you can hear the tree literally HUM with all the bees that visit.

Meanwhile in the front yard, the cherry tree is in full bloom and there's a blizzard of blossoms everywhere. Every house on the street has one in their front yard and so there's a drift of petals on the sidewalks.

Thick and lush petals!

By the front door a double pink camellia is just finishing up its bloom.

I believe this is another version of a camellia which resembles an orchid.

... and since its almost Mother's Day, its time to go and find my hanging baskets for the season.
This is last years  model.....

Back soon with weaving news.....
