I’ll Taste Your Slice of Paradise

We had such a wonderful trip to see our sisters. At my sister’s in Atlanta, the crabapple tree had carpeted the front walk and steps with pink petals.


The window sills were sprinkled to match.


There was a lovely courtyard in the back with beautiful plantings.100_3888

In one morning we saw, wrens, chickadees, titmice, blue jays, bluebirds, cardinals, goldfinches, juncos, and probably others that I am not remembering.

We also got to take a look at our niece's yard. She generously shared plants with us that we do not see in Tallahassee gardens.  Time will tell, if they are not suited for here. This lovely little bulb that we think is a wood hyacinth was shared with us in both blue and white. They were naturalized throughout their woodsy backyard.


We also got some red columbine and some large purple irises and some lamb’s ear. It is all in the ground. As I said, time will tell.
