I love spring because it brings "firsts".  I can hardly wait to tour the gardens each day to see what has its first bloom of the season.  The following showed their first blossoms this week.

One of the most beautiful sights in our landscape is the Cherry Tree.  It fills with blossoms and then drops them to the ground like a snow fall.

Isn't this a wonderful sight?

Purple Iris


Solomon's Seal

Virginia Bluebells

This is a Fothergilla shrub.  It is an old shrub that has made a little bit of a comeback in gardens.  The feathery blossoms look like spidery mums.

                                                         There is a chill in the air today and for the next few days.  We call this "Dogwood Winter"  the time when temps fall so the dogwood blossoms will set bloom.  Well, I think this year the dogwoods did not get the memo because our trees have been in bloom for  several days.  Today they turned the beautiful clear white instead of the soft creamery white when they are just coming out of bud.

There will be quilts coming soon.
