Last summer, we were walking through a garden center and saw a hibiscus plant. It said that it was a hardy hibiscus, so we decided to pick one up and see if it would survive the winter.
We were finally able to grab a few caches after running to a couple of stores today. We went over to Overlook park for a nice walk in the sun and warm day.
I walked over to the bridge to see what I was hearing down on the train tracks. They’ve been doing some construction. While over there, I noticed some honey suckles blooming and hanging over the edge of the road at the bridge.
I went out on the patio for a bit to get some sunshine this afternoon. I watched a robin hop around in the backyard for a bit. Just before I came in, I noticed bright yellow flowers on weeds.
Yesterday I noticed several red buds on our rose bush with numerous green ones. Sure enough this morning the first bud has opened.
We had to run someplace this afternoon. When we parked, I noticed that the pink and white flowers over by the railroad track were blooming.
We walked past the corner where the flowers come up in the spring when we walked over to Harvey’s BBQ for a late lunch/ early supper. We noticed that the daffodils are in full bloom at that corner.
The past week or so, I’ve been noticing that the trees are beginning to flower. Today they caught my attention across the street where I could get a good picture of them.
This morning, when the sun came up, I noticed the vacant lot was full of purple flowers blooming. It had been slowly greening up, but really greened up after the past several days’ rain.
Once again, we brought our hibiscus plant inside for the winter. It seems to be doing better now than ever. We made room to put it in front of a window that actually gets some natural sunlight.
We picked up some house plants in the spring. The snake plant has been in the window getting plenty of sun. We noticed a stem coming up with bud so I guess it’s going to flower.
We have our first rose of the year blooming on the rose bush. I smelled it when I was outside so I had to get a picture to share it.
We were walking home from Joy’s this evening and noticed the white tree that had been planted on Main Street is blooming. It’s a neat tree that’s different from the others along the streets.
We were finally able to get out for a nice walk this evening. There’s just been too much going on. We saw some dogwoods blooming at Memorial Park.
There are a bunch of various types of bulbs that someone planted in the vacant lot across the street. They’re in full bloom now. I noticed them this morning.
We got out for a nice walk this evening after supper. The trees are blooming, and some bulbs are starting to flower.
Today I noticed or at least took the time to go get a picture of some of the trees that are blooming. This year they’re not going all at once, but instead they’ve been more one at a time.
It’s almost February now and I noticed that our hibiscus had a flower that opened. It’s a nice change of pace from the temperature in the bedroom being in the upper 40s.
It’s January now and our hibiscus plant that we brought in for the winter is still getting occasional flowers.
It was a nice day today, unlike yesterday was. I got an older WOD done. After supper, we went for a walk and saw some flowers.
It’s starting to look like spring now that I noticed the first flowers of the spring blooming. It was some yellow bulbs near Main street.
Our rose bush is still blooming. It’s still getting some clusters of flowers.
I’ve been smelling honeysuckles for a few days now but never could find them. Today I noticed the white and yellow flowers in the vacant lot at the railroad tracks so I went to check them out. Of course I ate some while I was over there. Reminded me a lot of when I was a kid and they grew right out front.
I noticed some more flowers were blooming across the street in the vacant lot. Of course I had to go check them out. While I was over there several white butterflies were flying Across.
Our rose bush has it’s first rose of the year.
I haven’t figured out what they are but every spring in the vacant lot next to the railroad tracks there are tons of purple flowers.
Our bleeding hearts came up and are in full bloom. They really turned out nice.
More of the flowers at the corner are blooming now. The daffodils are flowering and some other bulbs.
I have posted before about the flowers at the corner blooming but with the negativity in the world I have to share pictures. Now its more of the tulips blooming.
We decided to try bleeding hearts in our front yard last year, since they are perennials. They came back up and are starting to bloom now.
I noticed more of the bulbs at the corner blooming so I had to go get pictures. I want to continue with my posts with positive stuff. Spring and flowers both fit that.
The trees are blooming now and it’s only March 30th! I do enjoy seeing the street trees blooming.
Our hibiscus is still alive after the squirrels ate it up last fall. It’s been blooming and slowly improving all winter while it has been in the house.
I spotted some Crocuses blooming already.
Our hibiscus has lots of little flower buds. I’m really surprised with it being winter and the fact that a squirrel had eaten it bare last fall before we brought it inside.
Something reminded me of my greenhouse at Pop’s house growing up. I loved plants and he built that thing for me out of scrap wood and windows. I loved it.
Our hibiscus is blooming just a couple of months after the squirrels ate it bare save a couple of flower buds. It’s been slowly recovering and now the buds have opened.
We searched and searched for butterfly weed last year but wound up only finding swamp milkweed. It came back up this year. We don’t have any monarchs yet but a bumble bee found it and has been hanging out on it all day.
We’ve had some some flower plants come up that we didn’t plant. We let the grow because why not? Now they aRe blooming
We got over to Chickies Rock Park for a geocache today. Sadly, the cache was a DNF for us, but we did get to see some pretty spring flowers in bloom.
