The old Gravenstein apple tree is covered in moss but the buds are swelling larger each day. Soon it will be covered in white and pink blossoms and by August some of the juciest most flavorful apples in the world.
The Weeping Flowering Cherry has one blossom and here it is!

Nothing says Spring to me more than these lovely, fragrant Hyacinths.

The heirloom Lilac is preparing for a gorgeous show of blossoms. When they open and the sun is shining to warm them the fragrance permeates the entire back yard.

King Alfred is reborn in all his glory. We never have to say much about this royal beauty. He speaks for himself.

Hiding under some Spanish Bell foliage and a few weeds, this Primrose says 'hello' to the welcome sunshine.

The sweetness of this white Violet can't be ignored. Look closely and see the pale lavender tinge at the edge of her delicate petals.

A bouquet of Wallflower will make my living room smell delightful.

The first tulip to bloom this spring. It's quite early but very welcome.

I don't know what the name of these little Daffodils are but they are just as dainty as can be. Ignore that pesty dandylion growing around it's stems.

The first Anemone to bloom this year. I keep telling me to get more rhizomes. I love these lovely flowers.
Here's a macro shot of a single flower on a royal purple/blue Hyacinth. I just love this color!

Little Miss Tildy is enjoying the warm Spring days we are getting. She run's all over the latge back yard with her buddy Tudie and hops like a happy little bunny over everything in her way

What beautiful photos of your garden, MM. I adore Gravenstein apples and I haven't seen one for years. One certainly can't buy them in the supermarket these days...such a shame.

How lovely for the doggies to be out and about in the sunshine...spring is such a beautiful time of year.

Glorious Spring pics, Bev. Your Spring is much farther along than ours, I'm afraid. It's 67F, partly cloudy and breezy right now. I have my windows open to air out the place. But....a storm system is coming through overnight that's supposed to drop the temps like a rock, and we may even get some snow tomorrow! Just supposed to flurry a little and not amount to much, but the cold will be a shock after being so warm.

Have a great weekend, Bev! :-)

Love and hugs,

Hi Bev,

Love all the spring flower pictures, but the blue hyacinth's are my favorite. Heavenly color and scent.

Tildy is adorable!

I have daffies blooming and the forsythia, and a bush is pink, at the edge of the woods, but I don't know its name.

We had 70F yesterday, it's raining this morning, but Spring is here.

Spring hugs and blessings, dear Bev.

Dear Bev ~~ Thank you for sharing those lovely photos of your flowers. I am so glad Spring has arrived for you - it is such a nice time.
Thanks for your comments about my storm photos and the trampoline up in the tree did look funny.
I had a ct scan on my lungs to see
just what is wrong. Still get short of breath a lot.
And it is great to be back again
and I am glad you liked the jokes.
Take care, dear friend,
Love, Merle.

What a wonderful way to start my morning! You have so many spring beauties. They bring such a feeling of joy, don't they?
The apple tree in the sunshine is such a beautiful shot. I'm strolling along, enjoying each and every bloom. And the scents...mmm!
Oh, that primrose! Such lovely colors. And yes, don't you just love the anemones? The blue of the hyacinths is breathtaking.
Tildy in such a cutey. Our cats are so happy to be outside again. I can't wait until it's warm enough to open the doors and windows!
Happy spring, dear Bev!! xox
