spring color

The spring flowers are popping out all over the yard.

The yellow, white, and lavender crocus are done blooming, but the large purple ones are still in full bloom.

The Tete-a-Tete daffodils are the first to bloom in the yard and are still going strong. These minis are only 5-6″ tall.


Happy enjoys the warmer sunshine these days. The flower bed by the kitchen door must have suited her just fine this particular day. Doesn’t she look comfy among the budding daffs?

ah, spring

How can yellow be that yellow? Simply glorious.

I love the Siberian Squill. Such a gorgeous shade of blue. These tiny flowers were in the yard when we bought the house in 1994.

beautiful blue

We planted the Glory of the Snow several years ago and it is slowly spreading around the yard outside the kitchen door.

The lilacs are looking great. Can’t wait to smell them!

I don’t know the variety of daffodil this is, but it is beautiful and we have a LOT of them around the yard.

Another flower that smells wonderful. The Star Magnolia is just bursting into full bloom. We forced some of these blossoms several weeks ago and they were small and had no scent at all. A shame, because the scent is heady and not to be missed.

Oreo walks the fence around my fenced garden. Take a look at that chip pile! Our friendly neighborhood tree trimmer keeps us well supplied.

The daffodils are blooming in every corner of the yard.

It will just get better and better from now on. Lots more flowers to come! 🙂 ~~Rhonda

    I am so jealous! LOL! I really need to plant some flowers that bloom in early spring! I do have a few things starting to peek their heads up out of the ground. (The tulips & bleeding hearts) I cannot wait until everything starts blooming! Until then, I guess I will have to live vicariously through YOU! LOL
