|Sweet Dory of Dory's Backyard recently became an Angel, so we are having a glorious flower blog hop to honor her. She *loved* flowers SO much.|
Up our way in Southwest Michigan, spring has decided to start up; Bang, just like that our weeping cherry tree went poof and became loaded with a beautiful bounty of blooms within its bowers. But on April 20th there was bad weather, wind and heavy rain, which made the sidewalk pretty in petals, but the tree is no longer full of all those pretty blossoms like you see here...
|At first this tree shows some color and then the buds start to turn a pink shade...and this is now at the point where the blossoms are opening.|
|The next day the color is deeper and there are more blossoms open.|
|This is the third day...|
|The tree has gone 'poof'!|
|Now its fully in bloom...sorry for the blurred look, it was rather windy...|
|Only a few blossoms are open here.|
We have bluebells and snowdrops...
We have a few grape hyacinths...
And there are even some tiny 'flags' which are like miniature irises.
We have bleeding hearts too, but they, while growing into the huge shrublike plants they have grown to be over the years; are still only in bud, no blooms yet.
Our lilac tree is soon going to blossom too.
In the back porch a patio-pot was overwintering, and it too decided it might be nice to show a bloom...petcretary thinks it is periwinkle.
Its truly spring, the season when all the flowers wake up and show their beauty once again.
And then there are the not so auspicious 'f'lowers', that is the tree flowers that are on the maples, oaks and others. They are the bane of petcretary and many others...they make her sneeze and sneeze...she is allergic to them:(
So out comes the medicine and avoidance of warm windy days in the pretty outdoors. At least there is good allergy medicine, when petcretary was a little girl there wasn't much to choose from that helped...
Each spring and many other days, indeed forever whenever we see new blossoms we and all of Blogville will cherish the memory of Angel Dory.
We send love, hugs, purrs and licks to her earthly furmily.
This was me in my younger years at a pawrty, (For Pawppy's Mom's 90th Birthday), and I was obliged to wear this flowery lei! BOL!
But you know for evfurrything there is a reason and a season, so now I can show you these pictures as my flowery tribute to a furry loved and treasured Angel Dory.
