Here's what's blooming

I love Spring! I love warmer weather, no snow, green trees and flowers blooming! Here is what is blooming in our yard this week.
The last of the daffodils
.
Some pretty little grape hyacinths
.

This is called money plant. It grows wild in the trees behind our house.
.
This is a closeup of the money plant. The reason for the name is that in the fall, the seeds form in quarter size, silvery circles that hang from the plant. It's pretty then too.
.
This is a bleeding heart that is growing near our front door
.
These little wild violets are growing along the tree line on our side yard.
.
Don't you just have to smile when you see flowers growing? And - don't you think it makes God smile when He sees us enjoying his handiwork?

It really does make me smile, inside as well as outside to see the evidence of Spring. This year every thing seems to vibrant in color to me....maybe winter was just to long!

I love all your pics!!! I knew I recognized the 3rd picture with the money plants - my mom and dad had these growing under their pine trees too and now I have a few in my flower bed. I love Spring - it's my favorite season!

I loved these pics. They reminded me of my grandmothers who have passed on. My mom's mother had a huge bleeding heart by her backdoor. I always loved it. My dad's mother had money plants and I still have some "coins" from her yard. God does create some amazing things!!

Beautiful! As someone who loves to throw an occasional tea party...did you know violets are edible? They look really pretty thrown in a salad or on top of a dessert. They taste just like they smell!
