The spring flowers are blooming abundantly around the winery. We have redbuds, lilacs, spring beauty, gas plant, violets, trillium, pussy’s toes, dogwoods, and many more all in bloom right now. I’m wondering how we are going to throw blankets over everything to protect them from the freeze that’s predicted tonight!
Our lilac bush is really loaded up this year, and I noticed a few branches had a touch of white blooms to them. Anyone else see this? I’ve never noticed this before on this particular bush.
The bushes in front of the cottage are blooming, but it’s hard to tell from the driveway since the flowers are so tiny. The bees really love these flowers though, and on the warm mornings, the bushes have literally been humming with honey bee activity. I think these bushes are Citrus Berberis, but I’m not positive about that i.d.
I hope you enjoyed this peek at our spring scene. I invite you to take a break and come see all the flowers in bloom here while you sip a glass of wine. Ahhh…..
