|Braeburn Apple Blossoms|
The strawberries are loving their new bed! They not only have loads of flowers, but the berries are quite formed for only April. These are June bearers of an unknown variety.
Some of the just plain pretties are the lilac, which I am pruning down to shrub-size little by little since it was overgrown with neglect. Lilac smells so wonderful! I always thought of lilac as an "old lady plant" since only my grandmothers had it! But, here, it grows in nearly every yard.
I know I will be showing more of this, but the iris is blooming! Not the new bed iris, the bed I planted last year.
The winter pansies continue to outdo themselves. They are so perfect, so bright, so distinct in their color patterns. I just don't know why, but they just bring to mind a perfect flower!
The forsythia, flowering quince, crocus, daffodils,and other bulbs have already died back. Creeping Charlie is starting to flower though. I do wish it would creep the other direction, under the forsythia, instead of out into the path!
