This is my sour cherry tree in bloom. I love sour cherries because they make the best cherry pies and after scouring numerous nurseries, I finally found one. I planted it in my backyard several years ago where it has been pruned a couple times by the neighbor kids using it as home plate. Other than the first year, it has not produced one cherry. The one we had at our original farm and the one at my parent's farm are both single trees so I assumed they were self pollinating. I suspect the real culprit may have been late freezes the last couple years. This is also the first year in a long time I can ever remember seeing it bloom.
One of my two redbud trees beginning to bloom. Since the blooms never happened last year due to an untimely frost, it will be the first time in awhile I have seen them. I just love these trees and only wish I had a dogwood to go with them.
Some of my wife's flowers. I am really poor at flower identification so I can't really tell you anything about it other than I find it pretty.
The first word that my daughter learned how to spell and the word she first spelled with alphabet blocks after years of building towers with them.
What I believe is a Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker that was up in a ridge vent of the barn down on my parent's farm banging his brains out in his attempt to get outside instead of simply flying down and out the open barn doors. He was really making quite a racket while my daughter was flying her kite on a fine Easter day.
