    My flowers...

    These are flowers blooming in my yard now. I took the pics today. We've had beautiful weather lately even though a lot of rain which has really brought out the plants and trees. It was 78 degrees here today. Hope you enjoy the flowers!

    Spice bush... Don't which spice, just what the guy told me when I bought the plant about 4 years ago. It has really gotten big and is blooming like crazy. Best year yet!

    Lenten Rose. These are from my MILs old home place. Got them about 7 years ago before her house was sold and all her plants were cut down and the yard was paved for a parking lot! They have been slow growing.

    thanks for showing us your beautiful flowers.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love your flowers; thank's for sharing them. You're way ahead of us. Our trees are just leafing out, and soon the tulips will bloom.

    Nice to see the vibrant colors after this long snowy winter. I have crocus and hyacinths in bloom and the daffodils are budding.

    Love your flowers- I want to get some hellebores someday- They are supposed to be "deer resistant" which would be a help here, since they ate all my azalea bushes!! We took a walk in the woods today at our nearby state park, and the skunk cabbage and up and green, and the mayapples are all over the place- I didn't even know they were in the park! We also saw a big woodpecker looking for his dinner. Thank goodness it's spring!
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    Glad everyone is enjoying the flowers! Bet the daffodils, hyacinths, and crocus are beautiful! We can't grow them here as it isn't cold enough for them. They need a long cold time in the ground. Weird, huh?
    The deer also dot our azaleas and camellias at the back of our property so we had no blooms from them this year. The only one that really bloomed is called Black Magic. Here's a couple of pics...

    What beautiful flowers you have. I have some miniature roses in my front yard but they have been struggling since the snowfall in Southern CA on Dec 31,2014. Trying also to watch water usage.
