More Finds In My Garden

I found another blooming shrub tucked in a corner of my garden. I don't know what it is. I need to do some research.

Here's a closer look.

And another, even closer look. It has long dangerous looking thorns.

This is probably my favourite succulent. I'm hoping it spreads!
My Cherry Tree Is Blooming

It's a huge tree. You can't really tell here...looking through the branches to the sky.

There are lots of big old limbs. I'm going to need a ladder to get the cherries.

This one is taken from my East facing bedroom window. So many blooms!

Here you can see the roof of my carport in the lower center, my fence, and my neighbour's garage. It gives you a better idea of the size of the tree.

The Greening of My Garden

One of several rhodo bushes in my yard. It will be interesting to see the colours of the others.

I was ready to rip this plant out thinking it's broom but I've learned that it's not, so it stays.

These are growing in what is just a crack in the cement.

I don't know what this is but green flowers are so cool.

One of three peony bushes that's coming along. Also bleeding hearts plant.
Here's a bit of a peak at my new floor in my bedroom. I'll need to do another photo now that the room has been painted too.
