The Sunday Post #28 – Weekly Wrap-up

Welcome to my Sunday Post. Thank you toย Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.

This week spring suddenly appeared full force! Unfortunately, that means my pollen allergies are getting really strong… however, it also means my garden looks really beautiful, with everything starting to bloom, from the cherry trees to the strawberry bushes to the roses. Here’s a picture of the cherry tree, which we planted a few years ago. I can’t wait for it to actually bear cherries once more ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I love the look of trees with blossoms on them. They look really pretty and brighten the place up. This year we plan to revamp the garden so there is let tiring work for us to do. Neither of us enjoy grass cutting and hedge trimming!

    • Yeah, and little by little everything else will bloom as well. I can totally understand not enjoying cutting the grass… I’m so lucky my husband does that, he didn’t grow up with a garden, so he’s actually quite content doing it ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. The plants and trees in front of our house and finally starting to bloom to, it’s some sort of blossom and it looks really pretty when they are in full bloom. I’ll try to take a picture this or next week. Your cherry blossom tree looks really pretty! How often do they give cherries? Have a great week!

  3. Oh, that is lovely, Lexxie! I am sorry allergies are an issue. I suffered miserably when we lived in Texas. Sky has been having allergy issues lately as well but I think this snow storm will tone them down for at least a week. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes, we’re *still* having snow. Berk’s violin concert was cancelled yesterday. Her teacher was trying to reschedule for today but I’m not sure that’s going to happen since we got ~3 inches more overnight and it’s still snowing. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your warm weather and the rest of your weekend!! **BIG HUGS**

    • Eh, I have been able to find some great homeopathic help for our allergies this year, so we’re still able to enjoy the garden and the blooms ๐Ÿ™‚
      I hope the snow will stop falling, and that Berk’s concert will take place very soon. Have a great evening, my dear *BIG HUGS*

  4. The tree is beautiful! I would love a Cherry tree but my yard isn’t big enough for a tree. Hoping maybe one day we will since my husband loves them. Spring came with week also but then it got cold again. It wish it would make up it’s mind because I have no idea what to wear.

    The Cherry Blossom trees are starting to bloom in town and I know the pollen is going to torture my poor son but so far so good. He gets them so bad he can’t see or breath and sometimes develops asthema (sp) So it should be a fun couple of weeks when they are in full bloom, Ugh!

    Have a great week Lexxie! Enjoy your new reads (from your stacking post)

    • Our yard is quite big, and we have other fruit trees as well. But the cherry tree is one we planted after we moved here, and I love it! It got a little cooler here yesterday, too, but not much.
      I found some really good homeopathic medicine for my pollen allergies this week, Michelle, and I have trouble breathing and asthma sometimes as well. I don’t know if you can find that stuff in the US, though.
      Have a fantastic week ahead!

  5. Your tree looks awesome! Sorry to hear about your allergies — mine are being weird this year; I haven’t been really stuffed up, but my ears keep freaking out and I’ve been faintly nauseous. But I’ve been told that our weather this year is really weird (I haven’t been here long enough to actually know what normal is, apparently).

  6. I feel your pain! Third day in a row with sinus pressure and headache. Today should have been better since it is raining, but that triggered my sinuses internal barometer.

    The tree is gorgeous! I was out in the gardens this weekend and all my hosta buds are so happy they can see the sun. I did set aside a little time to read on the porch. Want to finish Sever before either Septimus or Percy #2 arrive. ๐Ÿ™‚
