Spring Blooms

White and pink daffodils

It has been an odd spring, with a few days of abnormally high temperatures that have thrown normal bloom times out the window.  Then we had a fairly hard frost last night.  Hopefully things that started earlier than usual will survive.  Here are some pictures from around our yard, there has already been some really beautiful stuff happening this spring!

The yellow magnolia tree, which didn't have a very long bloom time this spring because of the weird weather ---too warm, too fast. But it sure was pretty for the three days or so when it was in bloom!

'Appalachian Red' redbud tree. The color is so glorious, more fuschia than the purple color found in most redbuds (which is also lovely!). This tree has been putting on a show for weeks now. Beautiful!

Before the Appalachian Red hit full bloom earlier this spring.

Same tree, about a week and a half later.

'Lavender Twist' weeping redbud tree.

Cherry blossoms

Fancy double daffodils.

These daffodils look like sunshine in flower form!
