May Flowers Are Here (heavy on the blossoms)

Every time I think I am done photographing the spring blossoms, another opportunity shows up with more endless blossomy moments to capture.

Our property and our neighbors' properties have so many beautiful trees.  We live on a short street and we are all friendly with one another. You can't go for a walk without seeing someone to say hello to :-) Don't plan on being in a hurry. LOL

We started spring with double tulips, lenten rose and azaleas. Then moved onto Mother's Day, picnics, flowering crabapple trees, dogwood blooms, yellow magnolia, lilacs and white fringed tulips from my husband's tulip garden at the school where he teaches. 

Then our local museum had "Art in Bloom"... with incredible floral arrangements inspired by pieces in their permanent collection at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute.

I can't wait to see what June brings!

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. Very pretty! The frilly white tulip is really cool:@)

  2. Very pretty, Debbie. It's fun to see what is pretty much a replay of what our April looks like when seeing your region's timeline for blooms. That magnolia tulip bouquet was outstanding, and the tree with lights magical. I love the museum arrangements too. I've been working steadily in my own garden, dividing/transplanting, and the pollen is affecting me for the first time ever - lots of it! Have a great week!

  3. This is what Spring is all about and why we are in awe when it arrives.Beautifl Debbie.In lve w/ your lit tree..and that wee birdbath:)I used to do picnics..loved them:)

  4. All gorgeous photos. Thanks for the eye candy this morning, Debbie.

  5. One of the things I miss most about our years in New England are all the beautiful blossoms. You can never have too many for me, the are beautiful. Enjoy!

  6. Oh you have so many beautiful blossom pictures. My peonies just opened yesterday! Hooray! I think spring blossoms are my favorite.

  7. Oh my, Debbie, so much beauty to behold! I still love that lit fairy tree, and the one that looks like it's blooming tulips. The white fringed tulip is beautiful, and oh, how I'd love to see the Art in Bloom. Hope you're having a wonderful week! xx
