Spring Blooming Flowers 4-19-2016

Hop on the T.A.R.D.I.S. to see what I found blooming in 201320142015.

Happy Tuesday! We’ve finally got another batch of blooming flowers. I think these posts will be flowing quite more often now. I see so many things in bud. It’s been warm and rainy, just how spring is supposed to be.

I hear so many folks here in the Midwest whining that spring is so late and the weather has sucked. Does everyone have amnesia? It’s been a beautiful spring and early according to my records. Well, ok.. 2012 was really early.

  1. Well, whether spring is early, late or just right, you sure get some lovely blooms once it does arrive 🙂
    Daffodils have always been a favourite of mine, but I’m glad to see you also include the ‘lowly’ dandelion 🙂

  2. Oh my! Your world really is in bloom!
    … and to think I was out in the yard yesterday getting excited by the smallest hint of new growth starting to peek out 🙂
    You’ve given me an early hint of what’s to come 🙂

  3. I’m a fan of magnolias and once I will buy a big one… big enough that not even the blindest guy with a lawn mower will see it :o) (unbelievable, this man killed one lilac, two magnolias and a friggin eggs-pensive gingko biloba, he must be the main character of Stephen Kings novel)
