I was surprised a few days ago to see that the lilacs are in full bloom already. That’s three or four weeks earlier than last year.
The daffodils are gone now, along with most of the very early tulips, but the early- to mid-season tulips are in full swing. These are the last of the early red ones:
The current tulips are mostly pink and purple.
Last year I planted some phlox, and I’m glad to see that it’s doing nicely this spring:
The early iris have lots of dark violet buds just about to open, along with some of the mid-season tulips.
I’m glad I have enough varieties of tulips for a fairly long display. If only they would bloom all summer!
