OK…so I couldn’t wait for the wisteria to bloom. Here are some pictures – minus the pretty purple flowers that wisteria presents – of my yard. And folks wonder why I could never see myself building a life anywhere else!
This is the lorapellum that blooms so beautifully this time of year. On the right is a huge camellia tree and in the background is my house.
These are tiny little huckleberry blooms waiting to burst open (they’ve already begun). The magic in this is that it grows up in the center of a huge camellia. The reds and whites are just amazing! Can’t wait for them both to be in full bloom!
This is right outside my sliding glass door. This cedar tree, along with a huge live oak on the other side of the house, keeps my back yard very well shaded. The pink camellia in the left side of the shot stands about 12 ft. high. Just beautiful!
Another shot of the pink camellia. The vines that you see are the wisteria that’s yet to bloom. I can’t even describe how amazing these two look together when they’re both in bloom.
Another shot of the lorapellum with two red camellias in the background.
This, up until two weeks ago, was a pond that was sort of to the south of my house. I’m SO glad my neighbor filled it in. Hopefully, it’ll keep the snakes and mosquitoes at bay this year. I see he’s already planted fruit trees. Trixie is in the bottom of the shot. She’s always right there next to me, along with Little One.
This shot was taken standing in front of my neighbor and bestie, Kristy’s house. These are
apple mayhaw trees. In the background is another pond that was filled in. Now, there’s this huge plot between us that we can actually cross instead of having to walk all the around. ***OK…..so the bestie knows her plants better than I do. These aren’t apple trees…they’re mayhaw trees. Go figure! Thanks Kristy!
I’m actually standing in what was a pond a couple of weeks ago!
So there it is – the reason why there’s no better place in the world. This Mississippi girl ain’t goin’ nowhere!!
