Early Spring Blooms

This has been one of the earliest and nicest springs I can remember.    We’ve had a number of days in the 70’s already.    The golf course across the street  is full of golfers hitting that little white ball around.   I don’t understand the appeal of golf.  I’ve only tried playing once but I found it really frustrating.   

I’ve been enjoying wondering around the yard taking pictures with my new camera.

My tulips are already blooming,  my bleeding hearts have some flowers on them too  and my lilacs have tiny little flowers on the ends of the branches.DSC_1373 

I love the color of this tulip, the inside is especially pretty.


A few of the neighbors have already mowed their lawns.  Not us though, not quite yet, but soon we will need to mow too.


The weeds are coming up in the gardens faster than the flowers.   It is time for me to spend an afternoon pulling up weeds.   I don’t mind doing this except when the mosquitoes come out.

Spring is kind of  like childbirth because  I forget the pain of winter when spring arrives.
