April is warm, and sunny, and I am really antsy to get into the garden. But, I know better. The prediction for the next few days is to have overnight lows in the 20s! The last frost date is still a week away, and I am not going to pick up my annuals until next week. The tulips are still pretty, the redbud is still blooming, but those bulbs in the brick planter haven’t yet bloomed so I still don’t know what they are. The ajuga is still blooming next to the sidewalk, and in the back.
This cherry tree is on the way to my office, lovely isn’t it?
At the office, these two-tone daffodils are blooming in front of the front door.
Along with these yellow ones.
These have a faint sweet fragrance, just lovely.
This is a saucer magnolia, almost ready to spread out the petals.
There are buds and one open flower as well.
Back home along the driveway, two azaleas are starting their spring display, one pink and one white.
Around the circle, this darker pink is almost ready to burst.
This one little red tulip comes up every year, and I think maybe this year I’ll transplant it to the bed with the other tulips. The hostas are coming up around it.
The flowers are so pretty around here right now that I had to have a go at some artsy pictures with my still-new-to-me camera. Here are some golden forsythia blooms at the edge of the parking lot at the office. I love the way the background blurs.
These are maple tree flowers. Yes the sky was that azure blue just a few days ago.
Here’s a closer look.
Sunlight through the pear trees.
In back of the house, the clingstone peach has a lot of blooms this year. I hope that means peaches! Maybe I can get a few before the bear does.
How is your garden going?
