After what seemed like a very long wait, the spring flowers are finally here!!!
Our Star Magnolia is the always the first tree on the street to come back to life in the spring.
I wait anxiously for those heady fragrant blooms to appear,
hoping they don't come out too early and end up getting frozen in a snowstorm.
This year was just perfect!
I took lots and lots and lots of photos.
I have no self control.
In the backyard a few other blooms popped up.
Trilliums under the crabapple.
Ferns, unfurling amid the . . .
Of course there's lots of weeds to pull up everywhere!
So here are a few more spring flowers. Trilliums because they're just so pretty,
funny checkerboard fritillaria,
and cheerful anemones.
So before spring slips through your fingers . . .
. . . remember to stop and smell the lilacs,
because Halloween is only 175 days away!
Ok, bear with me, just two more photos of the magnolia.
Thanks for visiting and to all the moms and grandmas out there
to humans and pets, best wishes for a Happy Mother's Day!
