Last year when we first diiscovered the tree outside our bedroom window was a cherry tree - I was overwhelmed. Seriously overwhelmed.
Renovations had gotten the better of me - ugly surprises that come with buying an old home in bad repair had left me feeling about as down as you can feel about a house and then..................( well you can read about our discovery here ( Thank you tree )
It started like this..............a couple of weeks ago.
It seemed like we woke up one morning and they were there - outside our bedroom window
A deep pink in the budding stage - in such abundance that we couldn't see anything but that from our window
Last Spring ( our first Spring here ) there were only a few branches that flowered and we were overcome by the beauty - but this year?
We watched in fascination as buds started appearing on every branch.
And then they opened.
oh my gosh - and then they opened......
There's something about waking up in the morning to a Cherry Tree directly outside your second story window.................
That makes you stay in bed just a little longer in the morning
Suzan says - John could you make me a tea - and bring it up to me here - with my camera?
John says - I'll bring you a tea - what do you need the camera for?
Suzan says - I want to take some pics from the bed
John says - WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE, THE QUEEN OF SHEBA?
Suzan says - No, I'm Queen Suzanna Anna Danna
And I couldn't think of a more apt description of how I feel in the mornings looking out at this tree.
Suzan says - Now..............I'd like 2 toast with jam and an orange cut up please..............thank you
John says - Don't push your luck - we've got a million things to do today................
Don't you hate it when footmen act all superior?
Shouldn't he be on his knees saying " Yes, your Royal Highness - right away " ?
Anyway - I have to put on my Cinderella clothes now and go downstairs and start working in the fillth and grime of the mud room we're still trying to transform..............
But tomorrow morning?
For a good 20 minutes or so...................I'll be Queen Suzanna Anna Danna again.
Have a wonderful day my Royal Subjects...................
Much love to you
From me - your Queen ( if you're reading this early in the morning )

Thanks Rita !
that is beautiful, like waking in a cloud of blossoms!ReplyDelete
I bow to you great Queen of the Cherry Tree. So lovely!ReplyDelete
What a great view to wake to this time of yr.ReplyDelete
It's so amazing - really it is !Delete
You and John are so funny - you should be on a sitcom. Love it!ReplyDelete
Your tree is stunning and I am sure the reason why it is so spectacular is that you have taken care of it the past year. The other owner probably did not water it or take care of it. Is it one that you get cherries from or is it a mock one.
Have a great week and good luck with the mudroom. I am sure it will look great when you finish.
What a lovely discovery! The stages of blooming are amazing. I'd stay in bed, too.ReplyDelete
I love that expression, and my father used to use that often: "Who do you think you are, the Queen of Sheba"? I was able to one time find "Entrance for The Queen of Sheba" (by Handel) as a ringtone, and used that for years. Love it, Suzanne! Oh, and I have Cherry Tree envy. . .must get one for our yard, maybe right outside our bedroom window in fact!ReplyDelete
OMGoodness, I wouldn't want to get out of bed!!!! Cherry trees are just magnificent to me. Thanks for shring yours. You just CAN NOT get good help these days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Is there any chance Prince Charming notices you in your Cinderella clothes? Because from what I get, he can't recognise her face, only her shoe...ReplyDelete
Donna took my exact line, bummer. I bow to you too. That is something. They are my favoriteReplyDelete
So good that you have such a beauty to wake up to! Enjoy your tea in beautiful peace. xo PattyReplyDelete
Oh wow! That tree is just magnificent! I would love to have a cherry tree but they don't grow in Florida. It's on my bucket list to see them blooming in DC someday though! Have a lovely day Queen Suzan!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful thing to wake up to! I'd feel like a Queen too. Just stunning!ReplyDelete
So beautiful, isn't it? Just amazing! I think we have a young one in our new backyard.ReplyDelete
Beautiful tree. It's nice that it bloomed better this year. Have a wonderful week, Suzanne.ReplyDelete
Oh- That sounds absolutely breathtaking, Suzan! What a wonderful way to start the morning--minus the sass from the john. lolReplyDelete
Hope you had a great day- I know you are still working hard on transforming your place...hang in there! xo Diana
Oh my... that is pure gorgeousness. With that view I'm not sure I'd ever get out of bed. lol.ReplyDelete
Ahhh to wake and see that beautiful tree. A tree fit for a queen! Have a great weekReplyDelete
What a treat! It is absolutely G. O. R. G. E. O. U. S. and a wondrous beauty to wake up to. Signed: your lowly follower... We did have some huge lilies bloom — the kind that end up in Easter flower arrangements. Beautiful.ReplyDelete
Hail to the Queen! It reminds Anne falling in love with the cherry tree outside her bedroom window at Green Gables. Lucky gal to have that to wake up to every morning. And, the footman, of course.ReplyDelete
How perfectly lovely to wake up and see this beautiful tree every morning. It is really beautiful Suzan. I always feel that spring and it's blooms are way too short lived and will soon be but a memory (or photo of it).ReplyDelete
You are so cute and if you want to be Queen every morning i say go right ahead and John better be happy he has you.lol That cherry tree is so lovely,thanks for sharing and have a great day your majesty.ReplyDelete
You're so sweet Marlene - I dub you my lady in waiting !!!Delete
Enjoy your cherry tree, my queen!! It's really quite beautiful! Nature is such a wonderful surprise, sometimes! Have a wonderful day! You, too, John.ReplyDelete
beautiful tree. wonderful surprise amid the chaos.ReplyDelete
Well, you deserve it! Spectacular! Spring is such a cheerful time of year. This view would be fabulous outside my bedroom window!ReplyDelete
Well Queenie Suzanna Anna Danna that it one gorgeous sight to wake up to! A bit of heaven I think! Nothing quite as breathtaking as a tree full of blossoms! Thanks for sharing with SYC.ReplyDelete
Love it ~ hillarious ;) everyone should be a queen for one day...or morning don't you think? The tree is absolutely gorgeous...lucky lady!!ReplyDelete
