Beautiful Flowers Around the Cabin

My yard is once again a playground for the Honey Bee's and Bumble Bee's.
Let me show you some of the beautiful flower's I get to see and smell as I walk around the Cabin.

It started with my tulips blooming last month and early this month.
This is just one small patch.

I had to spray with Deer-B-Gone when they first started to come up, then again when the leaves were tall and the blooms were just starting to come up then one last time when the buds were tall and just getting ready to start opening. Deer are very, very fond of tulips especially the yellow ones.

Then the pear and apple trees started to bloom.

This is one of five apple trees at the cabin. We only have one pear tree.

Now the Lilac's are out in their full beautiful glory.

There are at least seven of these beauties in different parts of the yard and every few years a new one will pop up somewhere from a bird or other animal spreading a seed here and there.
What I think is a Gooseberry bush grows at both ends of the back yard along the fence.
It does put off small greenish berries that look very similar to the Gooseberry.

We have an abundance of Chokecherry trees/bushes all around the yard thanks to years of the birds eating them and crapping the seeds everywhere. Even though we remove quite a few every few years there are still lots of them for the bee's.

 The bee's really love these and walking by you hear a constant hum in the air.
I don't Chokecherries not even as jam or syrup so they are left to the birds. 

The bee are waiting not so patiently for these two to start blooming.
I think it might be some form of Honeysuckle but I'm really not sure. It's just a pretty bush that smells wonderful. 

This is from last year, they are just starting to bloom, but will make the bee's happy in a week or two.

This what they look like up close. 
I believe they are an Allium, each one of those little flowers turns into a pod with three seeds. I am guilty of cutting off the seed heads and sprinkling them in different places and flower beds that I know are safe from the mower. 💞 

I love all of the flowers we have around the cabin and seeing their beauty always makes me smile, but when the wind blows just right the smell can be intoxicating. Soon the wild plums will start to flower but I'm waiting for the Honey Locust to start it's blooms, but it doesn't usually start until later in June, they smell so good.
It's safe to say I will be hearing the constant hum of the bee's for a few months.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a walk around the cabin with me.
What flower's do you have blooming in your yard?

Take Care Everyone & Have a Great Weekend
💞 Hugs, Sandy 💞


  1. It all looks beautiful! I too can hardly wait for the locust to bloom. They are blooming lower than us, but not here yet. It's my favorite floral scent. (Oh and maybe Violet's in early spring. I love them too.) Looks like a good chokecherry year here too. Hubby will be happy - I make him gelled chokecherry sauce (kinda like cranberry sauce.)

  2. I loved seeing all your plants, thanks for sharing.
    I have some Alliums for the first time this year, I love how yours look popping up among the bushes, I didn't know you could scatter the seeds, thanks for the tip.

  3. Beautiful flowers and bushes, I bet it smells heavenly.
    I am patiently waiting for my Iris to bloom, I planted some new colors.
    They are my favorite flower.
    Spring is late this year.
    Thanks for sharing the walk through your cabin garden.
