The next 2 trees were Mother's Day gifts:) Both are my favorites..the Serviceberry..white..when Caroline was expecting Lucas..so 13 yrs ago..
And the pink..a Flowering Almond..a couple of yrs later.May is their month to shine♥
Mid May..Mother's Day Monday..the Flowering Almond starting to bloom beautifully and my Serviceberry..so..May14th..
The crabapples will follow soon~
Then the lilacs..
After seeing Rose Cottage/La Maison Des Jardins..engulfed in snow for so long..I felt she needed a rejuvenating serum:)
Donna had posted about her charming bunting..
I had white plastic bunting but I knew it would not last all summer long..
So I took some fat quarters..(each fat quarter makes 3 pennants..)..and sewed away..I used a wider double quilting cotton tape for the top..the pennants are stitched together..right sides together..then turned inside out..cotton wide tape sewn at top..
The earth is opening up to lots of growth..
I planted petunias in the flower boxes around the side..(you can't see them)..the front got hanging geraniums..(can't see..) and begonias instead of geraniums in pots..
Soon the perennials will fill in this area..to the brim..some roses..clematis..seeds..it's all good;)
See what I miss come March? All this.If winter ender Feb..I would be thrilled.
I made another great little cake..this one is from The View From Great Island...
Strawberry Buttermilk Cake♥
Soon it will be strawberry season in QC..in the interim..we get the Costco ones that look like they have been on steroids;)
PS..never hesitate to give a tree as a gift..preferably..smaller..a standard or low growing..year after year..they bring such sweet memories to you.
Have a great weekend~
