Spring in my garden

The season of yellow is quickly giving over to the season of blues, pinks and whites. The neighbors are welcome to their garish forsythia; I'd rather wait for these in my garden:


Virginia Bluebells


Serviceberry


Meadow Sage


Quince (slightly garish, yes, but gorgeous anyway!)

So... what's blooming your way this weekend? Still stuck with all that yellow?

;-)

Garish but lovely. I love Quince and Forsythia. Your more delicate beauties are stunning though.

My serviceberry is poking her sweet little buds out, and our crab apple trees are about to explode into hot pink Barbie colors! And the magnolia...and the redwood...and the dogwood....

I finally broke down and went to the garden center yesterday and walked away with two humongo red geranium ivy, and lots of dianthus to plant. Bring on the color!!

Dutchman's britches are up on our southern slopes, and blood root is about to bloom. Trillium leaves are open but not yet the flowers. How I love the early Spring ephemerals!

Not a garden flower, but I have been seeing a lot of spring beauties lately.

I love quince, glorious in the spring, oh so tasty in the fall.

Oh, this is lovely! I found some bloodroot, toothwort, and ground ivy last week during some of my explorations. You can see them here: http://thesunriseofmylife.blogspot.com/2008/04/thursday-threesome-wildflowers.html

I also found some Trilium that I will post later this week.
Love you blog...I'll be back for more :)

Did I mention snow???

Bleeding heart, Johnny jump-ups, the asian pear trees, dandelions ...

Those are lovely pictures, Laura. I still have only a few brave crocus and small blue hyacinth--not even a dandelion to enjoy yet! The daffodils have some buds and I'll have to get some liquid fence sprayed on them so the deer and bunnies don't eat them before they have a chance to bloom.

The blue coloring in the bluebells is stunning! I have only seen the plant once or twice before!

Thank you for the wonderful photos--I love that quince, which is it?

Oh, I love flowering quince! There are so many flowering trees up here, compared to Texas. All we had down there was those ornamental pear trees, and maybe a redbud. Up here, EVERYTHING is in flower (which I am beginning to think is the true cause of my "cold").
