I wish I'd taken photos for this last weekend. The tulips and narcissus were in full bloom. We had a front come through today, and the rain pushed most of them sideways. Here's a relatively short set of photos for an April Bloom Day:
Narcissus and tulips
The view from the kitchen table
The dogwoods aren't blooming as profusely this year. This one has the most blooms of any in the yard.
The view from the library window
Some of the happiest flowers, right now, are the ones that have escaped from the flower beds into the grass - like this mazus.
The leopard's bane is escaping into the yard too.
Usually, this azalea bush is covered with flowers - but not this year.
Happy violets in the grass
When I open the blinds in the bedroom, this view of the dogwood flowers makes me very happy.
