The beautiful blossoms in my yard from early Spring till now…
Because of the unusual warm winter, Spring comes early this year. The Forsythia Europaea shrubs bloomed in early-mid March. So we got to enjoy fresh cut flowers earlier than previous years.
Other early blooming flowers …
Muscari ‘Blue Star’
Even the dandelions are looking very pretty too.
The very fragrant Lilacs!
I love the lilacs, they made my house smells so nice. Do you know that lilacs are edible flowers? I didn’t know until I found this lilac jelly recipe on pinterest and I hope I’m brave enough to try it next year! 😉
Rhododendrons – This year the Rhododendrons are blooming so much better than the previous years. Maybe the prune last fall help them to flower more.
Purple rhododendrons – doesn’t the flower bud look like a water lily flower bud?
Fiery Red rhododendrons
– This one hidden under the Holly shrub, I may have to trim the holly shrub even more if I want to keep this shrub.
Late Spring/early Summer blossoms and I still have trouble in identifying them. Sigh.
