The flowering redbuds and lilacs will soon
be just a memory until next year.
It's hard to say goodbye to such beauty and they
have been exceptionally beautiful this spring.
We are fortunate to have several lilacs and redbuds
in our yard. Some of our redbuds were planted
by Mother Nature. The redbud growing in the row of lilacs is
a volunteer as is the larger redbud in the background
in the photo above.
We dug most of our redbuds down by the creek when
they were very small. The lilacs were planted from
shoots we dug from around the base of the main
plant. One of our lilacs was given to us by a friend and
a couple of them were brought here years ago
from our former home.
I adore the pastel colors of spring such as the pinks, lavenders,
yellows and greens. It's hard to choose a favorite spring color.
I love them all. Do you have a favorite?
Until next time...
