Bloom Where You are Planted

I took a little break from my paper crafting 
as it is the warmest day we have had since sometime last October!
I walked in my gardens and most, not all of the snow is gone
and took a little tour of the work I will have before me....
Lets just say I will be spending many, many hours outside....

So my friend "Ros" from the UK is on a team blog called "Our Beautiful World"....
each week a word is a "prompt" to share photos of "your" world.....
I have joined in a few times before and when I read her post today and noticed it was "bloom"
I HAD to join in....

Being an avid flower gardener, I have a zillion photo's of "blooms".....

I am going to share a few of my past photos from my own yard/garden....
I hope you will take a minute to sit back and enjoy!!

The first photo is of our flowering pear tree that we used to have.....
it breaks my heart it is gone due to a lightening strike several years ago.....

OMG we think so much alike that it's sometimes SCARY!!! Check out the FIRST BLOOMING photo on my blog today and you'll understand!
I haven't played this challenge in quite a while (neither have you) and here we are BOTH playing it today! Too funny! Your BLOOMIN' photos are all FANTASTIC! Can't wait to come see a few for myself (I hope) in May!

What lovely colors! Your photos are just great. It's a shame about your tree. I hope you planted another one in its place.

Oh, my gosh, you can share garden photos every day and you'll have a captive audience in me! That pear tree was amazing! I didn't know they got that big. It's so sad that you lost it. Beautiful garden! It rained cats and dogs here all week and I didn't get any gardening done, even though our weather otherwise says "spring".

Wow! your garden is so bloomingly beautiful. I just love all those flowers.

Oh no, that's so sad that this gorgeous tree is gone! It sure would break my heart to if it was in my garden or neighbourhood.
Beautiful photos of beautiful flowers!
Hugs,
