Outside in

March 30, 2009

Pollinating trees offer a welcome reprieve from the bare-branched winter, seasonal allergies or not. (Thank you, Actifed.)


I like seeing all the little green buds, but I love the ones that flower. Our plum trees get bonus points for being pretty AND holding the promise of jam late in the summer.

The Bradford pear is ornamental, so I use it accordingly.


Early spring is also the easiest time for me to put the hit on unwanted new growth, which sometimes makes a decent vase filler.  I love fresh flowers, but I’ll take fresh sticks – for the table and for Best Shot Monday.

    It’s so nice when nature (and medications) begin to cooperate, and we can finally breathe the air again, isn’t it? It looks like you’re doing a great job of bringing nature in to you: I’m impressed.

    Wow, I just love how the twigs look blue in that last one! Beautiful.

    Those are gorgeous! I love the arrangements in the vases, but especially the last one! Nice.
