Spring is Here

The Ornamental Pear trees that line our circular drive are in bloom.....spring is officially here!

The line up of photo's above take you on a tour around the circular drive.

  The neighbors on each side of us have big travel trailers....makes our little tow behind look kinda!

There are a few ornamental trees in the back and you can see the front yard trees over the roof top.

I am looking forward to a bouquet of blossoms in the house .....

It's almost time to get some plants for the green house......

H has been stripping the old paint from the front porch deck..   He has made a lot of  progress and it's looking really good!     I don't think we'll paint it again,   it peels too much and it's a big job to get the peeling paint off!     

See the tractor photo!


  1. I love the spring aruond your gorgeous home. Very beautiful pictures. Thank you very much for sharing all this beauty.

  2. It's spring here in Dallas too Penny. The Bradford pears are blooming everywhere! There's also plum trees, jasmine, and other goodies all abloom.

    Thanks for being with us for Thoughts of Home on Thursday. We love having you. :)

  3. That's what I loved about Texas - when February came - spring was soon to follow!

  4. Yes it sure looks like spring has come. I love those beautiful blooming trees. I can't wait to see more of what H & you have plan for out side this spring.

  5. this is not fair, it has snowed three times this week and will be in the teens tonight.

    How glorius though to arrive home to the lovely trees....sigh...totally flaked in chicagoland, Sandi

  6. I like the space you have out in front of your home. Everywhere I look there are houses here. Rooftops on my back fence! Beautiful, those blooms on your tree. Our little plum in the back yard is blooming and the pear tree in front is white with blossoms...I do so love Springtime, even if it comes before I am ready! Even the birds think it's Spring.

  7. Those trees are just gorgeous, Penny. We have flowering crab apple trees that line our drive way. Can't wait to see them bloom this Spring. xo Diana

  8. Beautiful, I can't wait to see that hear in Southern Illinois!

  9. Wonderful photos Penny ! Beautiful trees in spring! In Portugal we have many almond trees also blooming with white small flowers.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
    Hugs and love from Portugal,

  10. How pretty is looks outside. I was just noticing that some of the trees are starting to flower here in Florida (as well as the oak trees trying to kill us all with pollen). Thanks for sharing your photos with us at the Over the Moon Link Party.

  11. Very nice. It is still raining in the SF Bay Area.

  12. Everything looks so pretty!! It's still cool here in Ohio! :( LOL But they say it's supposed to warm up this week!

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  13. The pear trees are gorgeous! It must be lovely to have springtime arrive so early. It will be late May and June before we see blossoms like that.

  14. Spring has definitely sprung at your beautiful home. It is showing signs of spring here in Atlanta too. Thank you for sharing with us at Vintage Charm. sb

  15. Still waiting for some signs of spring here - your trees are beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us at Brag About It! Hope you are having a lovely week!

  16. Penny,
    Beautiful signs of Spring in your area!! So pretty. We have had temps. in the 80 and 70's here! Broke a few records being 20 -30 degrees above normal....
    I did take down all the Winter decorations in the front of the house and we cleaned up the front porch and the yard.

  17. Spring looks gorgeous where you live! Thanks for sharing with Tips and Tricks Link Party :)


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
