Spring Blossoms in the Garden

It's been a long time since I shared pictures of the backyard garden. It is so incredibly beautiful right now.

The fruit trees are in bloom in the garden, and if you stand still, you can hear the bees and see them work.

The birds have been enjoying the garden, too. I've seen a violet-throated humming bird, a California quail, a red-tailed hawk, mourning doves, pigeons, and lots of smaller birds that I'm still working to identify.

The daffodils are just starting to bloom, and will open more fully in the next two weeks.

The Dorsett Gold apple has been in bloom for a couple of weeks.

My 20th Century Asian pear, espaliered on the wall, is starting to bloom.

    Your garden is beautiful. It makes me look forward to warmer temperatures here in snow covered Michigan!
    Are those green onions by the bench? I plan on using more onions in my garden this year, but your picture gave me a few new ideas to plan!

  • That would be an excellent place for them, but those are actually paperwhites! They bloom outside here, starting in November. I'll deadhead all my paperwhites this month, and they'll take a couple of months to die back. Then I'll cut them off at the ground.

    It is beautiful! I love your non-plastic children's toys. I would really like to see your kids' rooms sometime. I could use some inspiration on shared rooms that still look nice!

  • Thanks! My husband and his brother made the swingset and the merry-go-round, and put in the metal to go around the in-ground trampoline. The children play outside almost every day of the year.

    I'm still working on the girls' rooms a bit before they're picture-worthy, but I have a Pinterest board with children's rooms that you may enjoy for some inspiration.

    Thank you! I will check that out.

  • Taral March 03, 2016

    Just beautiful and to imagine it's all done by you

  • Athanasia March 03, 2016

    Oh, it is just so pleasant looking and peaceful. I think of the book THE SECRET GARDEN.
    The lampost is very nice...is there one either side of the yard? Are those reclaimed posts? They make your yard look very park-like.

  • There are 4 of them. They are 9 years old. The sun has really oxidized the paint and they need to be repainted. I'll probably end up painting them the same rustoleum as I painted the sundial.

    How fantastic everything looks! Thank you for the photos of Spring arriving, your yard looks really beautiful :)

  • Rhonda A. March 03, 2016

    Temperatures of 29C, no snow, trees and flowers in bloom...what a lovely dream!!!

  • Pamela March 03, 2016

    Oh I love the photos. I want spring so badly. We are getting 3" more snow later today. I did plant some free carrots seeds inside after reading all you are doing in the garden. Makes we want to get out and work on mine, but can't yet so I decided to plant some inside. They are up and looking cute:)

  • Emina March 03, 2016

    My 3-year old exclaimed, "Ooh, that's a lovely garden!"

  • Becky March 03, 2016

    That's so beautiful! Spring is starting to arrive here, but, of course, you are further along then we are, since I'm in Oregon. Our daffodils are starting to bloom, and some of the blooming trees. What we have, that you don't, is MUD. All over the place:( I think I clean up a pound of it every day--LOL! But, each area has it's benefits and downsides, and spring is good no matter where you are. I have so much inside work to do right now, I think I'm actually grateful that the outdoors and not calling my name, yet.

  • Kandace March 03, 2016

    Your lovely garden makes me want to have a couple of hours free to sit in it, look around, and read a little from a favorite book. It's like a mini vacation!

  • Your photography is absolutely stunning! I can't wait for things to green up in this part of the country.

  • Roberta in So. Cal. March 03, 2016

    Just lovely!

  • Darcy March 03, 2016

    I'm pinning your post for inspiration! So gorgeous. Thank you for sharing Brandy.

  • Marcia March 03, 2016

    I'm so jealous, as we have ice and snow and temperatures in the 20's right now. However, they are promising we'll see some 60's next week, which is quite unusual for this early in the year. We will take what we can get! It's still a good month away from planting even the cold weather things for us. I have been reading some flower catalogs, though. Thinking of giving up vegetables this year, although don't know if I can successfully do that. I can still move along the ground but getting down and then up again is harder every year!

  • Roxie March 03, 2016

    That is so pretty. It looks just like a park. Brandy you sure have a gift for landscaping. I wish you were close enough to give me a few tips. I have a bay window in front of our house. It is low, so anything in front of it covers the view. I have tried so many different things there in the past 30 years my husband is ready to put artificial things there just to keep from taking out things that I believe don't work. I am green with envy.

    I also deal with dogs. Our basset and dachshund like to dig. Not deep holes, just dig. What a pain. But hey, you get to love them like kids so you put up with the stress.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures. I am loving my paved walk way under my clothes line. So nice. I planted my Lady Banks white rose near my clothes lines too. I hope this one lives.

  • Susan in Dallas March 03, 2016

    Stunningly beautiful! You are an inspiration in so many ways!
