Woodswalker said...

Oooh! So beautiful! I can almost smell those grape flowers. Isn't it amazing the myriad shapes that flowers can take, all to accomplish the same pollination purpose?

Lori Skoog said...

We do need a little spring....and soon... Excellent shots!

lisa said...

Very pretty!

Janice said...

That was very pretty...it is coming isn't it?

MTWaggin said...

Love the last photo - we have some gardeners growing those around here and I'm just fascinated by them!

Cathy said...

They're crab apple blossoms, right?
Oh lovely! Lovely!
We walked outside for the first time in weeks.
A balmy 34' !!!
Happy Spring! :-D

Linda said...

I was ready for spring two months ago! Thanks for the eye popping incentives to keep on keeping on!

Ericka said...

dibear, thanks, they are blossoms on our winesap apple tree

Ed, thanks, it has indeed, and it was great to dust these off and enjoy them

joated, thanks, it won't be long now!

Dani, apple blossoms on our winesap tree

FC, brr! I just read of tomato crop devastation by frost in Mexico. sure has been a cold one

WW, my favorite scent in the whole world is wild grape flowers. And it is a delight and wonder what nature presents every day. All we have to do is watch. TV is wildly overrated.

Lori, we do indeed and thanks!

Lisa, thanks! Loved yours of the horses jumping

Janice, thanks, they say it is. Some days it is hard to believe. lol

MTWaggin, thank you and welcome to Northview. They are alliums, a relative of onions. I especially love blue ones, but can't seem to keep them going for more than one year

Cathy, close, blossoms on our standard winesap tree. Most years they are kinda plain white, but one year they were that amazing pink and white. That tree is such a gift. Housing for the birds, a trellis for the grapevine, lovely blooms and hard, tangy apples in fall. Happy spring to you too

Linda, thanks, same here!

Jeffro, winter is to be endured and so we do, but spring, that is another story., Thanks

Ericka, ditto and thanks. Guess we are in for the first real warm up since the cold set in. going to be some snow slides today I think

FW, thanks, close, they are alliums,which are a domestic relative of onions grown for their showy blooms. I like these, but my real love is the deep blue ones, which alas, seem to only winter for one year and then die out.
