I have quite a mix of daffodils, too. While most have faded, the later blooming types have just begun to open.
This frilly white variety also is very fragrant.
The Forget-me-nots are forming incredible waves of blue this year. Here and there I find them in pink and white. The wild violets add splashes of purple. This whole sea is sprayed with the tiny white foamy flowers of the wild strawberries. Together, they make a wonderful backdrop for the tulips and daffodils.
A favorite this year, are the Woodland Tulips which I planted last fall for the first time. I love their big droopy petals that close each evening and open each morning.
Out front large glowing tulips push up through the phlox, but the dainty little Lady Jane Tulips steel the show.

These short iris given to me by my Mother are another favorite and appropriately bloom for Mother’s Day.
The crabapples streetside are in full bloom. Their blossoms vibrate against the green. Now I know why this variety is called Purple Prince.
The dogwoods and columbines are budding and will be blooming next. The Forget-me-nots will pale next to budding Jacob’s Ladder.
Thank you Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting garden bloggers bloom day the 15th of each month.
