photography:: another week in flowers…

Monday

It’s that time of year.

I cannot resist taking hundreds of fresh floral shots.

We may have had the most mild winter on record, but I still could not wait for fresh flowers.

The really cool thing about my snowball bush is that it has a history.

My Granma Amy had one planted on her farm in the early 1940’s.

My Mom made a cutting from that old shrub in the 1970’s.

I made a cutting from my my Mom’s about 10 years ago.

I have Granma Amy’s snowball bush in my front yard.

Boom.

So, this illustrates how the old heirloom varieties are better.

Both were planted the same year.

The one on the left:  3ft sapling bought from a local nursery

The one on the right:  3 tiny twigs from Granma Amy/Mom’s

Again…Boom.

  1. beautiful. I love flowers. I usually stick to roses though. Where we live now the deer have a tendency to nibble on them. I have planted some up next to the porch and we installed a motion light to see if we could deter them from nibbling. We’ll see.
