Apples, Peaches and Buckeyes - OH MY!

The apples are growing- so exciting.  I have never seen them grow before so I am really having fun watching them. 
The peaches I have seen growing up when I would go visit my grandfather- I can't wait for them to ripen!  All the fruit in fact is "doing it's thing".
The Mexican Buckeyes are very pretty- I had never seen them bloom before and have been very impressed with the flower.  The seeds are neat- they are like little rattles.
Spring has definitely sprung.  Everything is blooming away.
The Monarchs which continue to taunt me are flying around everywhere, the bees are all over the lavender and everything else it seems with a bloom and the birds are out chirping away.  I even saw my first hummingbird for this year. 
Happy Spring to everyone!!  


  1. Awesome! I'm so happy to hear you've seen a hummer...gonna get my feeder filled!

  2. How fun to watch the apples grow! And how exciting to see your first hummer! I haven't seen any here, yet. I'm hoping they haven't forgotten me!

  3. I like the idea of watching fruit emerge and grow. So often you eat a piece of fruit without a moments thought of how it came to be.

  4. Lovely! I'm looking forward to spring flowers and hummers - we had snow this morning. Thanks for sharing your spring.

  5. I tried to comment earlier and was unable. Blogger must have been down. ?

    Cat and Holley - Now we have three hummers buzzing around- they are too fun- they were all over the place today and hovering around at the Agastache, almost fighting over it- was so cute!! I love watching all the fruit grow.

    Jennifer- too true, why I love to watch it grow and change. So exciting!

    Sarah- Snow??? aaahhh it was 89 today!
