Finally, finally. Spring is here. The snow and snow squalls of last Thursday and Friday are a memory, replace by my flowers.
I am supposed to be blogging on my theme of "New York State". Well, I live in New York State. "F" is such an easy letter.
I could have blogged about the Finger Lakes. (They will have to wait).
I could have blogged about Floral Avenue Park in Johnson City, New York (hey, I still can. And I will.)
But I have spring Fever and I'm in my back yard listening to the birds. My native cherry tree is budding. Fall planted pansy Flowers should be fully open tomorrow afternoon. I can't wait for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day (April 15) to blog about flowers. So, please Forgive me. For a flower gardener, winter can't be over soon enough.
The last of my crocuses. (OK, I cheated. This is from two days ago).
My jonquils. My first of the daffodils, they are tiny treasures. The first of my full sized daffodils should be open today or tomorrow, daffodils that came with the house. So they are over 30 years old now.
Purple Lenten Rose. I have two Lenten Roses. The other is a real early bloomer and survived two months of constant snow cover, but its flush of blooms is spent.
Bloodroot is just now coming out. Blink twice and you'll miss it, but it's lovely while it is in bloom. This is a native member of the poppy family, and has made a nice home in my yard.
One more picture I must show you. I took this at our local Rail Trail on Saturday. I fear some bird met its end - these were scattered on the side of the trail. Does anyone have any idea what type of bird these may have belonged to?
