FLOWERING


Judy noticed this huge shrub tree blowing in the wind recently and commented that it is so heavy with blooms that it seems to be moving in slow motion.

It's one of the Red Tip Photinia's that has been allowed to "grow up" as opposed to being trimmed back.

It's become a safe home for untold numbers of finches and we can hear them singing like crazy at certain times of the day.


We got our new home confirmed yesterday so it appears we'll be moving (once again) five weeks from tomorrow.

We've been assured that the duplex we're moving to is one of the nicer ones in Prescott Valley so we're looking forward to relocating and settling down once again.

We hope it will be our last move but that's what we said three years ago when we moved in here.

Moving is so stressful. Hope the new place works out.

That bush is huge.....how long do the blossoms last?
good luck on the moving, been so long since I've done it I wouldn't know how to even start.

Wonderful blossoms!

I hope you love the new place and I'll keep my fingers crossed it is your last move.

Jimmy said...

I understand about the move, hopefully it will be the last because that is a lot more work than anyone realizes.

I'd drive over and help, but I'm too damn tired.

Glad you found a place. Hope all goes well.

Around here, we call that a snowball tree. Hope your move goes well.

That's a beautiful tree or bush or whatever. One of the things we've learned from living in Florida for a lot of years is that anything you plant here will eventually turn into a tree unless you keep hacking away at it!

Glad you've got a place confirmed.
That bush is a load of blooms.

This blossom and the finches singing should help you to take a break when packing...

I'm glad you found a place - that's at least some worry off your shoulders. Love the giant shrub!
