On this weekend of many different celebrations, religious observances, and good weather, is there a better time to celebrate spring blooms? Probably any time flowers are blooming is a good time to celebrate them. I photographed these in my yard this weekend.
Here in the high desert roses are beginning to have buds. However, they will not bloom for a few more weeks. Therefore I have planted flowers that bloom earlier – and later – than roses.
‘Nelly Moser’ is a well-known clematis that grows up one of favorite roses, ‘Mermaid.’ The rose provides good support for the clematis. In addition, it provides shade for the roots. The two coexist quite happily.
Earlier this year I showed some blooms of the dwarf peach, ‘Bonanza.’ The peaches are now forming. You can see how many tiny peaches are packed onto the branches. If I want good-sized peaches and healthy branches, I must thin these out this week. Otherwise, the peaches would be very small, and so many could weigh down the branches.
Pansies are remarkable flowers. They grow well all through autumn, go dormant in the colder parts of winter, and joyously burst forth in spring. They come in so many different colors. Each bloom seems to have its own expression.
The weekend has been beautiful in Albuquerque. Wishing you a beautiful week wherever you are.

So pretty! What a lovely way to see in the Spring. 🙂
Oh, Mel, it is so nice to see you! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
Thanks, Tim. 🙂
The wake up bright pansies are so perky and colorful. Great addition to any yard.
Hi, Barbara. Thank you. I have bought pansies each fall for years. I’ve bought them at the old Rowlands; Alameda; Home Depot and Lowes; and probably a few others. This was the first year I bought them at Osuna, and they had a selection like I had never seen before. I’ll probably go there from now on for pansies…
Thanks for stopping by.
Thank you again, Susan, for bringing beauty to my home.
