Today's Flowers: Blooms Bursting
Only a few of my tulips have come up this year but they change throughout their growth period affording lots of photo ops.
I like the way some of my red tulips have white highlights.
Considering how many tulips I used to have, I try not to be disappointed by the dwindling numbers.
I only had one yellow tulip this year although perhaps a few more will come up.
The seem like different flowers when they open up.
Out of my dozen or so varieties of narcissus, only a few have bloomed this year.
I like this variety but I miss some of the others.
Also only two of these have bloomed out of 20 or so plants. The same thing happened with another narcissus that bloomed a week or so ago.
My azaleas are blooming very early and I'm crossing my fingers that we don't get a hard frost.
Covering my monster azaleas is not an option.
We've had a very wet spring this year.
I'm glad of a wet spring knowing that summers can be dry.
The azaleas got very drenched today.
I'm glad that it will be cooling off some next week but staying above freezing.
If it wasn't for the flowers, I wouldn't mind some very cold weather since winter was so mild this year.
My dogwood trees started blooming this week.
