It looks today to be a beautiful day in April. I had to take the dog out at 3:00 AM and the air smelled so strongly of orange blooms, there was a mockingbird singing his heart off in a tree off in the distance. There was just the sound of the breeze in the new green leaves. It was light enough to see around me. I could hear the pool filter humming quietly. I thought, it is such a beautiful morning, I shouldn't go back to bed. I did though and went fast asleep. Now that I have walked around with my camera, it is still beautiful and I don't have to worry about wildlife.
I was surprised to see how many buds were on the rose bushes so far. This is my Abraham Lincoln rose. It is one of my favorites.
I had to take this photo from last week's work while everyone was painting on Saturday, I decided I would clean the flowerbeds. I really like how white and pretty the railings look against the green and purple of the irises.
The big tree in front is all leaved out and we spent one Saturday trimming trees and getting everything ready for the wedding.
Everything is coming together very nicely.
My husband took tiny little apples that fell off the crab apple trees and he grew apple trees from them. This year he grafted limbs from the parent tree to the trees from the fruit.
This is what he got.
He has one blooming grafted limb on the green tree.
Here is a better picture of the little graft on the green tree. It just amazes me. He could take different kind of apples and he could graft them to this root stock and he could get all different kinds of fruit from one tree.
I have read about the Johnny Appleseed trees and how good they are and how disease resistant they are and why they are still are excellent tree to graft to if you can find root stock.
It is burning daylight and I have lots of work to do today. It is time to grab my gloves and get to work. Thanks for stopping by today.
