Spring Blooms

The dogwoods are at their prettiest I think, the leaves are starting to show on a few.   Won't be long before the flowers fade.   I have so much enjoyed their beauty this season.
the pink and white one was trimmed last year.

I think the trimming helped.

the boxwood definitely need a trim

My sister's stone rabbit, was too heavy to take home the last visit - he rested here for Easter
A beaded butterfly Steve purchased

Last year there was just one lady slipper - there are two this year
white azalea
a lone tulip ,  I think the moles or voles got the rest.

Peonies have quite a few buds this year and ants love them
My white lilac has the scent of a Jasmine

It's been a very pleasant Easter week.  Today we had a few heavy downfalls of rain ,  glad for it as it washed a lot of the pollen away.
Happy Saturday

  1. Beautiful Dogwood, coming from the west coast of BC I used to live for the masses of flowering Spring Dogwood. You have a lovely selection of flowering plants and trees, and the jasmine scented lilac sounds intriguing.
