More Spring Flowers

I just love this time of year. Everytime I go into the yard, it seems something new is blooming!



This is purple phlox. In the Spring the entire plant is covered with these purple flowers.




This is a flowering almond. It has such pretty, pink flowers. This plant was grown from a plant that originally came from Bob's grandma!




The ferns in our woods are coming to life!





This is a dwarf lilac, that will soon be open along our front walk.

What a fantastic close-up of the phlox. I had a flowering almond at our last home. They are such sweet plants. I hope you will have a very nice week.

Such gorgeous flowers. Do they have magnolia trees in Michigan? That is now my favorite tree since moving here to Oregon.

Love your flowers but I have never seen a flowering almond. I will have to go to Earl May's and see if they grow in this area.
Have a nice day.

Oh, I LOVE lilacs! We had five bushes in our yard at the parsonage. They smell DIVINE :) Don't have 'em here, sad to say. But we have plenty of other pretty flowers.

I've never heard of a flowering almond. Does it have a fragrance like almond?
Your pictures are always so pretty, and I agree, Spring is full of beautiful new sights, every day!

Oh, those fern are doing it to me!! That fresh new shade of green is so beautiful! So enjoyed your photos! I've wondered what our Creator was thinking when He made all this extravagant beauty for us to enjoy! There's never a dull moment!

I love the Emerson quote, I've never heard it before. I love spring too, the rebirth of all my favourite flowers.
