It’s only the third week in April and already some of my favorite flowers are up and fading fast.
Although I didn’t plant them, Crocuses are the first flower that shows up in my yard – sometimes before the last snow falls. Their time has already past. I did manage to get a photo before they were gone.
As you can see in my initial posts, my Daffodils came on strong. They are bright and cheery. Although we had a hard rain and strong wind they withstood the brunt of it. Unfortunately, they only last a month or so, then they too start to fade.
I love the beauty and scent of the Hyacinth. This should be the official flower of Easter. When grown in bunches it gives the garden a fullness of color unmatched by other Spring flowers. I like to cut some and take inside.
Just last week, my first Tulips began to bud. Some are now open and in full bloom.
The rest of the garden is starting to green up. Even as I lament the passing of these early Spring flowers, I am excited about what comes next.
