Late Spring in Bloom

New in the front yard garden: the recently-planted fruit trees are doing great and God's been taking care of the watering duties the last few days. I was surprised and thrilled to see that the grafted 5-way cherry has developed flower buds on three different types so far! I guess since the tree has to be older and thicker to be grafted, the branches are mature enough to bear fruit. I will be tickled to get any the very first year!

Also blooming is my "Sugar Plum Fairy" lilac I received as a birthday gift a couple years ago from my brother and sister in law. It is a dwarfed variety that only grows to 4-5' tall and wide. I love the lilacs this time of year - they smell so good.
