It is certainly a good thing that spring flowers are so hardy. We had two snowfalls in the first full week of March and this week brought torrential rains and flooding. Never mind Mother Nature. The flowers and shrubs are beautiful so let’s take a tour of my yard.

As the second snowfall melted away, bunches of purple crocus appeared.

The delicate blue of vinca decorates a shady spot underneath the trees in my backyard.

Just beautiful! My plants are still waiting on me to plant them! Ah, well. I always have the best of intentions and miserable follow-through. Thanks for sharing yours with us.

I love looking at photos of spring flowers. All the crocus in my garden are now over and so are a lot of the daffodils. My hyacinths are now out and looking rather pretty and I have been meaning to take some photos, maybe this weekend.
Happy Easter.
