Spring has Sprung!

This little guy was enjoying the warmer temps on a hollyhock leaf.
One of two lilac bushes I have that produce purple and white flowers. Somebody had given us the starts for both bushes years ago. I'm sure they started out as two separate bushes but morphed into one over time.

Columbine is just starting to bloom.

Flax. Such beautiful flowers on a delicate, wispy plant. The blooms last a single day.


  1. Such beautiful blooms. I have two lilac bushes that morphed into one huge tree looking thing. I have to top it off now and then or it will get taller than the house and not give as many blooms.

  2. Thank you! :) The double bloom lilac grows more like a tree and it has to be "tipped" every other year or so to keep the height down and encourage bloom growth. I love lilacs! Love how pretty they smell.
