Some "firsts...."

The first rhododendron bloom on our two-year old bush -

The first Knock Out rose bud - 

The first time the lilac bush has had more than one or two blooms -

The first appearance of what will become grapes - we hope!

One of the first buds on the David Austin rose -

There are others, and I'm anxious for them to bloom.:-)

What is blooming where you are?


  1. Your bushes are coming along very beautifully! The only thing we have here is a VERY healthy crop of dandelions, and they have a beauty all their own! Keeps the lawn care people really busy! LOL Have a great day, Sister! :-)

  2. How fun it is to find the first blooms. The only things blooming here are Daffodils, Lungworts, and Sillias.

    Have a great day Nellie.

  3. YAY!!! It is SPRING!!! Things are coming along nicely.

  4. I am so glad you are getting blooms! Our lilac didn't bloom this year, it needs freezing weather and I forgot to pack its roots with ice this year. We only had one frost.
    I love David Austin Roses. I can't wait to see that one.

  5. Girl, you are just bustin' out all over!
