FLOWERS ARE EVERYWHERE!
I love all kinds of flowers and revel in their beauty! Each time I go out for a walk I frantically snap every flower I happen to see. This drives my poor husband crazy. Sigh!
Below are some flowering trees – a maple tree which I can’t remember the exact name for you. Sorry. It is small but has rosy pink blossoms and then red/green leaves will soon sprout. In third photo down you will see the red leaves beginning to come out.
The second photo is of one of our pots on the front porch which is a mixture of small petunias. They will grow and spread out of the pots by the summer. Of course, more photos will be shared of them in all their glory.
Here is one of our pots of dahlias above which will become fuller as the weather gets warmer. Of course I will snap them again for you.
I had to share these gorgeous houses that we pass by on our 2.5-3.0 mile walk. They take your breath away. Their grounds are immaculately groomed and have beautiful trees.
This house below is much larger than it looks. The rest of it is hidden behind the trees and it has a beautiful gazebo you can see on the right.
I used to dream of living in one these mansions when we first moved here to New Hampshire. But now I love our home. It may be small compared to these fabulous 12+ room castles but my home is my castle. We have added and touched up and changed and rearranged things over the nearly fifteen years. It’s all perfect to me!!
Also, I want to share some new photos of one of our visitors – the magnificent Baltimore Oriole. He came to visit to eat the grape jelly and half an orange that John put out for it. But this time he brought along his mate. She is lighter in color and more muted but still beautiful. She is waiting not so patiently on top while her mate eats his fill of the orange and grape jelly.
She is brazen enough to kick him off if he takes too long.
In this photo above. The male sits dejected as the female eats. You can almost see how he feels by his posture.
Thank you for joining me today on my walk. I hope you enjoyed my photos. Stop by again real soon!
