Spring's Bounty

All of the flowering trees are just amazing right now. I don't know if it was a warmer-than-normal winter or a very wet spring, but the flowers seem to be more abundant than usual.
The scent of my neighbor's viburnum is intoxicating.
This is flowering quince in a beautiful peach color.
This Sargent cherry with double pink blossoms...
...looks wonderful where the blossoms are contrasted by the dark bark.
The lilacs are ready to burst a little early I think.
And I love these tiny bleeding hearts with their delicate feathery foliage.

I hope you enjoy your spring day.


  1. I'll take a bouquet of each please!

    Beautiful pictures ~

  2. I love the double blooms. They are all gorgeous. Here, they're not even leafed out yet!

  3. Hi Steve,

    Are all these flowers from your garden? You seriously need to post more pictures of your garden!


  4. All beautiful! I can just imagine how wonderful it feels to see everything blooming - we'll be waiting a bit longer for ours here. Your pictures are a great preview. Trina

  5. I can smell the lilacs! The only scents that compete for second place for me are lily of the valley and peonies! Thanks for the memories...

  6. I don't think I have ever seen the flowering quince's stunning!
    I too believe that the trees are flowering earlier than usual. My lilacs are in full bloom!
    Have a lovely evening...dona
