Pictures from late March  
I know it's been awhile, but I just hadn't gotten around to uploading everything lately, for which I apologize.


Firstly, a bunch of "wild" flowers whose names I don't know.

Dogwoods. And Azaleas. Yay. Pretties. If you had lilacs it'd be my childhood yard.

Those last two of the misc wildflowers look a lot like the wild violets we had in our yard to. But I won't swear to it.

There will be lilacs in one of the forthcoming batches, actually :) I'm behind in posting, so there is all of April and some of May already. And the lilies have started blooming, so there will soon be a lot more!

Among the dogwoods, the top dogwood with the floppier white petals is a Chinese dogwood, I'm told, and the flowers tend to be bigger like that rather than like the one below it. Next year if we are lucky, the red dogwoods mum ordered for the top of the new driveway might bloom, too.

I like lilacs very, very much. Red dogwood? Wow, I've never seen one.

The smell is so overwhelming though! They bloom a very dark pink, I think. Much darker than the ones in these pics.

Ooh, lilacs. There was a lilac tree outside my bedroom, and azaleas along the front wall, when I was young. You just don't find those same plants out here in Cali. Though there are some lovely bushes that are in bloom right now. Very sweet scents.

Oh, I've never seen a red dogwood. We had a small white one at the bottom of the yard, but that's it.

*Applauds!*

Thank you for sharing! The daffodils just arrived here, and the flower buds froze on the apple tree, so no blossoms this year. Deer have not yet eaten the tulip buds.

There will be more in the next week, since I'm behind. I just couldn't seem to fins the time/energy to upload them all.

Wow you're that far behind us weather wise! Though we did have a very early spring. We were very lucky to avoid the fruit trees getting bitten. Too bad about the apples though. You still have time to spray anti deer stuff on the tulips...

Lovely pics! Of the wildflowers - and from my limited knowledge - the one just before the violets looks like some sort of oxalis. Does it have clover-type leaves? If so, it's oxalis.

The one above that looks like a dandelion, though the stems seem a bit wrong. Could the second pic you posted be ragwort?

I see dandelinions and certainly violets.

White tree blossom could be crab apples.

I've never seen May apples bloom.
