Those of you in more warmer temperate climates won't understand why I'm so jazzed about the fact that it is mid April. Usually the daffodils are just starting to bloom. They are long gone, and so are all but the late blooming tulips.
I think this tulip looks sort of like a peony if you squint. I just love the little hint of pink.
Speaking of pink...My bleeding heart bush is blooming nicely too.
Every year I"m convinced that I've killed it. It's in a mostly shady part of our yard, so it usually doesn't do well. As the plant has had a lot of warm days before the trees have gotten their leaves, it's got more than it's usual share of sunlight. Dare I hope for a second bloom from this little guy.
And most amazing of all...
I noticed that my strawberry plants have started to flower!!!! Crazy!!!! Maybe I'll actually get some strawberries this year!
