(Sort of) Wordless Wednesday: Neighborhood in Bloom

We were worried that we would miss the annual bloom of our beautiful cherry blossom trees, but luckily they (along with lots of others) are completely covered in stunning pink puffs of awesomeness. The best part about these beautiful blooms is that I don’t have to do anything, and thus can’t kill them (like I do all my other plants). Something as simple as flowers gives me such joy. Hope you enjoy these pics as much as I love seeing them around our home!

Soon to be red azaleas


My neighbor’s ground cover… no idea what it’s called


The neighbor’s tulips


I get to drive under this gorgeous canopy of blossoms several times a day. LOVE IT!

No idea what this is called either, but I love the sunny yellow color!

This blog is a journal of our day-to-day lives as well as a chronicle of Caleb's progress after a recent spinal surgery to alleviate the effects of his cerebral palsy.

    So pretty!! 🙂 Love it! And those pretty yellow flowers in the last photograph – is that a forsythia bush, maybe?

    The colours are amazing! I can’t see your neighbour’s ground cover very well but it could be a type of phlox.

    Here is my wordless Wednesday with linky:

  6. […] we saw the cherry blossoms except we were about 4 days too early so it was underwhelming. The more notable blooms were seen right in our front yard at home so we really lucked out. I don’t feel bad about […]
