Signs of Spring



The apricot tree is blooming full force this year and is beautiful...as are the pear trees, the redbud tree and finally my one tulip...

I had my camera on the wrong setting, so these are a bit blurry. As for the tulip, I'm not sure it is a tulip, but for lack of a searchable source to find out for sure, that is what I'm calling it...grin

We sat on the porch yesterday and could almost watch the leaves bursting out on the trees in the meadow. What a great time of year...

Hi Linda,
I think your tulip is a daffodil. They are also called jonquils or narcissis. I prefer jonquil. I don't know why.

They are in full bloom right now and are a little earlier than the tulips. Our tulips are within a week of blooming now though I think.

thanks for the flower photos. Out here to the East of Manhattan, I've only seen crocuses so far. Sadly, my crocus bulbs got nibbled out of the garden a few years back by some little critters, so there is nothing blooming on our little patch of land yet.

Amen, this is a wonderful time of year, to feel the warmth of the sun again, to see the subtle greening up of the landscape, and the flowers, the flowers again!

Hi Edna,
You may be right, but I've got jonquils and I've seen narcissus and the leaves on this one are thick and heavy like tulip leaves or maybe another in that family. My jonquils have already bloomed, so that lovely is over for this year...

Hi Jo,
When we were in Arkansas, I planted rows of flowers along our drive. The deer were wonderfully tame and would come right and eat the flowers off...grin And very picky they were...only the white blooms until they were gone and then the yellow ones..grin
