Here is an up close look at the apple blossoms. I think they are so sweet and delicate.
The creeping phlox is just gorgeous now. It had a few blooms earlier but decided not to be outdone by...
Later blooming daffodils. These beauties are such a pretty color of buttery yellow.
There are a couple of them that are turning white. I wonder if the netire clump will eventually do so or if this is just a result of the drought year last year and then all the rain this year.
Now Frances I know you will appreciate this next bloom. It is on a small azalea bush. This little azalea has been in the garden several years. It started out as one of those small azaleas that I bought to decorate the Easter table a few years ago. I put it in the ground wondering if it would survive our winters or if it was just one of those greenhouse plants. The little jewel has survived despite being moved several times, with limbs being broken off and having a terrible place to grow under a maple tree. So I really appreciate its little pink blooms and it will to live.
Our French Lilacs are blooming up a storm. They smell great but aren't as stongly scented as the old fashioned kind that grow across the street from our house.
