I need your help......

 
 
 
What is the name of this beautiful tree which we all fell in love with?
 
 


 
We found flowers planted in the most interesting containers.  These to are especially vibrant and unique.
 

 


 
I couldn't resist getting a picture of Diane peeking through this awesome hedge made into a tunnel over a walk way.
 
 


 
And a handsome deer in the fields.
 
 

 
These are the goodies I had shipped home from the Village Country Kettle.  This is a large store in Intercourse where the Amish sell various bottled items. I have purchased items every time I've visited.  The baby pickled beets are something I would never do my self and they are sensational.  Trudy and I cannot resist them, and my daughters are excited that I will share a jar with each of them.  Then I brought home a relish that we love on hotdogs.  We will soon be having camp fires up the canyon where we roast hotdogs etc., and this relish is a must!  Then I love the Chow Chow which the Amish make and I had a couple jars of that in my shipment.  The store is the actual place where the canning in done.  There are samples of everything, so that you can't leave without purchasing.
 
I received a call from my friend who does my quilting, and my quilt is ready to pick up.  So tomorrow I'll show it to you.  Then on Thursday and Friday I will be away from home and will not be blogging.  I will be in Midway at the Zermatt Resort at a quilting retreat, where I will be having a Venders booth.

    Don't you just love the Lancaster area. We usually go to the AQS show in March and again to the Hershey show next month. Lots to see and do in the area. We never tire of it.

  9. Your flowering tree looks like a dogwood, the provincial flower of
    British Columbia. There are many different varieties. If you ever come to Vancouver in April/May you should drive down Cambie Street and see different species. There is also a pink version.

  10. Hi Norma.. I wrote earlier this morning to answer your question about the tree, but don't see my comment. It's a Kousa Dogwood.. a japanese variety. Many of them in bloom here in CT right now. Across the street from us they have two kousas that have been grafted. They're half pink and half white. Very pretty!

  16. It looks like a Dogwood tree. They come in white and pink and bloom in the spring. They are shade lovers and you often see them in the forest.
