goodbye winter…hello spring

This morning, from the kitchen window, I could see that the apricot trees had burst into bloom overnight.

I could smell them from the back door.

And just outside the back door, the row of daffodils has suddenly blossomed.

The star magnolia is another bloom with a wonderful scent.

Such a beautiful blossom.

Last year, we had to dig up the huge Lenten Rose by the mailbox and move it. Part was planted by the bench in the fenced garden and part was planted under the big oak in the back yard. Both are blooming beautifully this spring.

It always surprises me that the bleeding hearts are up and ready to bloom so early in the spring.

Even the peonies are popping up.

And in the veggie garden…the radishes are just coming up. We planted them nine days ago.

Love spring! ~~Rhonda 🙂

    Beautiful photos…but the one of the Apricot Blossom is just stunning!
    TFS…your garden is just a little ahead of ours. Hoping our BIG magnolia will bloom just over Easter for the big hunt! 🙂
