Today's Flowers: Happy Mother's Day

The first three shots were taken this week at my neighborhood park.
The yarrow above surprised me because my yarrow isn't budding yet although the foliage is growing.
I think the yarrow at the park may be ahead of mine because it gets a bit more light. Normally though, yarrow doesn't bloom until summer.
The rest of the shots are from my yard.
My hydrangea is getting the first hint of color.
We've had so much rain that the flowers are bent in a variety of ways.
My Queen Anne's Lace above almost looks like an umbrella while the one below is spread out like a lace table cloth.
My coriopsis is starting to bloom which is very early for this flower.

We usually see every one of these flowers in Oregon when we're there in the summer (end of June this year)...hope they'll still be blooming when we get there.

the Queen Anne's Lace, My first thought was a ladys hat. :) Think how nice that would look. :)
