Textures and More . . . !!!!!

this is the papery skin of a clove of garlic. i think it's beautiful~!!~(for the textures file)
we are back home and although still trying to settle things down, i just couldn't resist going out this early morning and getting a few shots of the garden. the cherry tree is blooming and i love the way the buds, at their tightest, are quite a dark pink but as they unfold they become lighter and lighter until the actual blooms are either a very light pink or even white . . .

the pollinators are one of my favorite things about the fruit trees in bloom. some of them are less glamerous than my favorite (the bumblebees) . . . but they all have their own special qualities that make them interesting, if not beautiful.
more cherry tree buds.
WARNING: there will be a lot of these while the trees are in bloom~!~

i am always so very happy when our fruit trees manage to bloom without the frost having destroyed them. this year seems to be a good one so far . . . they've actually started to open and we are getting weather reports that indicate warmer than normal temps for at least the next few days . . . yippppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee~!!!!~
this is an allysum that is a periennial . . . i wish that it bloomed all summer . . .
i can't remember what it is called at the moment . . .
this is the blossoms off of the fruit tree that i have yet to identify. they smell quite fragrant and as you can see are just gettting started.
