After the rain -- and before

Crabapple blossoms cover the ground and nestle in a small indentation in the rock (which we just dug up when planting some ferns under the tree).  Wind and rain this weekend have almost denuded all the trees that were blooming this week, especially the crabtrees and redbud.  The honeysuckle are taking over as bloomers for this week along with the hawthorne and, lest we forget, the dogwood who are in their glory days.


  1. What a fantastic carpet of color!

  2. Happy to meet you, Miss Helenmac. Thank you for visiting my blog. I love to see all the trilliums (or trillia?!!! I think they are Ontario, Canada's official flower. I was blaming all of Boise's beautiful, blooming trees for my sneezes, but I guess it was more than that as I am now home and still sneezing. I will visit again.
