I swear this spring it was getting to the point where I thought spring would never arrive. I jeaously looked at my west coast friends' pictures of sun and blooms on Facebook, while it was still brown, drab and cold at my house. I still have a hard time believing the snow is done!
Here are some pretty flower pictures taken from April 9 through the present. These crocuses were the first up.
There's a rose of Sharon bush on the side of my house. It's another one that blooms first and is the prettiest shade of light purple.
The lone red tulip in my front yard.
I can't remember where I took this, I think in my front yard.
This is the third spring in this house and this was the first year I noticed that the tree on the side of the driveway was a dogwood.
The lilacs finally bloomed by around May 20th. The front yard smelled delicious. I wish they lasted longer and bloomed more than once a year.
I love phlox. There are white and pale purple in my yard. I shot these in the neighbourhood.
Johnny jump ups are another fave of mine. I saw these in town.
No idea but I'm gonna guess azalea.
This is an azalea on the side of the driveway at my house. I love it.
Another azalea in my front yard.
In a neighbour's yard.
