Spring Blooms!

Spring is early this year.

I have been taking advantage of the warm weather
and have been out working in the garden.

 While I get to work,
come along and take a tour of my early spring flowers.

The hyacinth in bloom.

 Vinca minor.

 Flowering pear tree.

 Cornus florida, or Dogwood tree.

 Pink Dogwood.

Due to the drought in 2010, 
neither of the Dogwoods had a single bloom last spring.

 Iberis or candytuft.

Dicentra or Old-fashioned bleeding heart.

 The Canada Red Chokeberry bloom.

This is a very sweet-smelling bloom.

Notice that the leaves start out bright green. 
They will turn purple in a month or so.

Purple leaf sand cherry in bloom.

Dare I say, "Bitch?"
You know I mean that in the nicest way.

You only say that because you can't see all the weeds!

But, thank you, dear!
