Spring Blooms


Spring is bursting forth with all it's colorful impatience. 
This is a magnolia. We call it a tulip tree in these parts.

  1. Beautiful photos Olive! I miss the lily of the valley I left behind in Idaho. But many of my azaleas are starting to bloom now. Have a wonderful day.

  2. Just lovely on the snowy cold morning in the north. You make me believe there are flowers under all our snow, just waiting to bloom :-)

  4. I am going to miss all of the flowering springtime trees we had at our previous home. We had a tulip tree as well and it was so pretty!

  5. Pretty photos! Lily Of The Valley is one of my favorite flowers, but darn if I can keep them alive. I'd show you my one inch high daffodil shoots, but they aren't nearly as impressive.

  8. Hi Olive. Sad reminder that poor Clover is no longer with us :( But isn't it wonderful that spring is starting to pop up all over the place. Its the same in our garden over here in Devon. Beautiful photos my friend. I always love the miracle that is Spring, when new life starts to appear everywhere :)

  13. Love the Lily of the Valley. I have a small bunch which come up every year by the AC. I have tried to move them, but they love that place and no other. It is nice to get my hands back in the dirt again. Great patio peach blooms - so delicate.

  15. Hi Olive,

    You are one lucky gal to have such beauty already in your garden. It seems like we will never have spring here in MI, snow and just more snow. Today was 25 degrees today...lol.

  18. We have that same ornamental magnolia and I cannot wait to see the pink blossoms......we should start seeing the pink buds soon now. It's the first thing out in the Spring in my yard besides the forsythia. :) We call poplar trees tulip trees because of the perfect tulip shape orange and green flowers they have. Have a great weekend Olive.
