Our tulip tree is the first to bloom here on Green Mountain.
We were blessed with a beautiful weekend and it was just enough to encourage her to open up a bit. I took my camera out to take a few photos late afternoon. I love the stages of the blooms and of the brown furry bud sloughing off to reveal the pink blossom.
I have quince that has been blooming here and there for 2 months but this week all her limbs have decided to join in together.
The daffodils are blooming in places across our property. (But not where I planted them) These in the edge of the woods. The line I planted by our barn not a one bloomed this year.
Our star magnolia we planted 4 years ago is an early bloomer too. I have high hopes for her but so far she just hasn’t lived up to them. How can I say that when her blooms are so pretty? There was even a bee on one of them. A sure sign that spring is very close.
The Lenten rose (hellebore) is so dependable. Tucked away on the west side of a huge poplar tree she blooms and blooms and each one looks so different. Who knows how long she has been here, for she came with the property.
Went on a hike last week and spotted 4 different wild flowers blooming. I was quite surprised even though it’s a normal time. It’s just sneaked up on me with it snowing and all in March. Not typical in Alabama.
I hope you are enjoying whatever is blooming in your yard. Or in your house. Spring is my favorite.
