Spring Surprise!

One of the more pleasant things about moving is seeing your yard and gardens move through the seasons. We moved here smack in the middle of the summer, when everything started to brown and whither. So it was a wonderful surprise to come back from spring break and learn that we have a dogwood tree!!

We had one at our old house, but sadly lost it to Isabelle a few years ago. I really liked that tree, so I'm very happy to have a new one here.

Also very pleased to find this big pink puff ball tree.

I'm sure it has a real name. Is it a pear? Cherry? If you know, please school me on this. Anyway, very pretty.

I'd guess it's a crabapple tree, but I'm not an expert. Saw one blooming here in my neighborhood today on a walk. Very pretty!
