... my spectacular Tabia Bui

... besides finishing a commission piece and 2 other mosaic works on the weekend, i wanted to show you our fabulous Tabia Bui tree that's flowering at the moment.  It's just so amazing that I can even grow one of these trees out here and I LOVE it !!!  I originally planted it so the rooms along the southern side of the house would see something pretty when they looked out the window in winter and ~ voila ~ ... it grew! 

... now i just have to get the little 'Bow Park Creeper ' {we call it that anyway} to crawl along the back fence as well.  You can just see it to the left of our 'not so stunning satellite tv dish'.  It's got a tiny red flower, but when it gets going it becomes thick and weed like which will be spectacular...  come back in a couple of years and i'll post it's progress too!

...WOW! factor ...

What a gorgeous tree! Depending on where you live in the US, there are many kinds of flowering trees...a Dogwood, Crepe Myrtle, Flowering Crab, Cherry and many more. I love them all and in the spring when they bloom it is a glorious time!

Your mosaic tile pieces are very pretty and I think Molly is adorable! :)

Your tree is coming along nicely, but I have to say that the tree with the pink flowers is gorgeous! I really like the Mollie sign and the design on it. And your little calf is so sweet.

Ooooops, forgot to finish my name. (I think I got distracted going back to look at all your lovelies).
