When we saw our house for the first time, it was the end of October and all the leaves were turning. When we moved in, it was Dec 22nd and there was nothing but snow on the ground. We had no idea what to expect when spring and summer came along, and we (so far) are really happy with the way the gardens are coming along for late April.
We have quite a few pink and white flowering trees in the front yard (the next three pics)
They're gorgeous. Just a week or two more and they'll be in full bloom.
We also have a few flowering trees in the backyard that are just beginning to bud. Hopefully they'll be as pretty as those in the front.
Our two tulips that bloomed. We are going to buy a ton of bulbs this fall and add them to this section of the garden as well as in front of the bushes that are near our walkway. We also only have two daffodils in another section of the garden. So weird. We'll just have to get more springtime flowers (hyacinth, crocuses, etc) over time.
And just so you know how crazy my husband is, he decided that when I was taking pics for the blog, he would climb one of the trees and have me do a photo shoot. Silly boy!!
