So that's what a celandine poppy looks like. Beautiful. It is on my wish list for the native plant sale coming up the first weekend in May. Thanks for all the pictures linrose. I think you are ahead of me. I haven't noticed my redbud or dogwood blooming. I do have violets blooming though.

Wonderful photos Linrose and Kchd! It's really nice to see spring breaking out for you. It will be awhile yet before the flowers are blooming up here, but your photos heighten the anticipation.

Have you ever viewed photos of the Rossendale Fairies? Rossendale Fairies: Skeptics Swarm Over Alleged 'Fairy' Photos
Your service berry and tiarella reminded me of them.
I've always thought they looked a lot like flowers tossed into the air.

Awe NeWisc.
You gotta admit that the fresh coat of paint we woke up to this morning was a far better sight than the grey wash that's been all about us.
Have you anything in bloom yet?

I have seen a few pussy willow flowers, but nothing else. There were a few green shoots poking up through the leaves but I think this cold and snow will set them back a bit.

That fresh coat of white was nice, especially the way it hung in the trees and shrubs. But I was just getting used to walking outside with a light jacket and hat.

Yup... A whole week of pretty nice weather spoiled us.
We took a sip. We now thirst for the rest of the cup.

pawprint Goldenseal is blooming...

I found this nice example of Goldenseal just a few days ago.what's blooming now 2014-april2014-028.jpg

And these are growing in a little garden bed near the driveway. The purplish I believe are Phlox (stoloniferia), and the little whiteish are Rue Anemone (thalictrum thalictroids)what's blooming now 2014-april2014-002.jpg
