Tulip trees, Dogwood Trees, bees and snakes

Alas! Spring has sprung!

There are butterflies zooming about. Bumble bees tussel for the best blooms with nectar. Red wasps frighten the children. Lime green lizards jump from shaky flower stem to flower stem and I run from a black runner snake looking for a tasty treat by my feet on my front steps. This is an ordinary day in my gardening life.

I was amazed at how fast I jumped up and ran for the safety of the inside of my front door. I have always dreaded the day when I came foot to face with a snake in my yard. It has come to pass and I lived to tell about it. In case you did not know, the back runner here in my state is not poisonous and runs from people as quick as a bat of the eye. I was not in danger but I was none the less in a state of shock.

To my surprise, I ended up spending the evening with family outdoors in the same area where I had almost been treaded upon by the snake earlier in the day. I guess if you love gardening and seeing spring in action, nothing will deter you. At least, not me it seems.


One of my favorite trees in the spring time is the Tulip Tree, or more commonly known,the Magnolia Tree. I have a lovely purple one at the corner of my house that never fails to put on a great show. I enjoy riding around my area looking at the different tulip trees. They can be breathtaking and add early color to any landscape.


When I lived up north, I would come back home to Mississippi by train. I could always tell when I had crossed the state line into Mississippi. In the tree line, next to the train tracks, I could see beautiful snow white blossoms amoung the leafless still dormant tress of the woods.It was the Dogwood Tree in full bloom. The arching shapes were poetic with no two trees the same. The Dogwood Tree always add majesty to the yet sleeping forest.

A little sass is given against a backsplash of green grass sprigs that is called the Redbud Tree. Its electric pink signals Spring has officially sprung.

So many spring blooming trees to choose from to chase away the winter blahs. Bees a-buzzin and me a-gawkin; this is my favorite time of the year.
