After all the rain we had, the last two days brought sunshine and the temperatures are rising. What a difference two days make! Out in my backyard spring has definitely arrived - I'm quite excited about the new growth I discovered!
The peonies have developed little buds - these are dark magenta.
The French Lilac already has flowers, and oh! how do I love its scent!
Clematis come out of the ground again and start to wind around the apple tree - in the fall they show tiny white blossoms that the bees love.
I can't wait for the wisteria to bloom. It's climbed into the dead cherry tree and is stronger than the tree now, threatening to topple it over, so I have to cut it back hard after the bloom and remove the tree.
Another clematis, huge deep pink flowers.
This is a climbing hydrangea right next to the bench in one of the shady corners.
The bees were buzzzzy in the pear tree.
Are there signs of spring where you live?
