Primroses are still hanging in there.
Butterfly Bush
Gerbera Daisy

Beautiful Dogwood Tree bloom, it does resemble the cross as mentioned in the Legend of the Dogwood Tree, see the blood stains?
Prickly Pear Cactus out by the road, neighbors side.
My husband found this unique leaf. Pretty enough to be a flower.See all of the Tangerine buds..................click to enlarge.
Grapefruit is full too. Citrus Trees smell divine!

What in the world is this wild onion up to?
Ahh, the first rose bud on my Double Knockout Rose Bushes.

Darla: What a neat collection of captures of your flowers. I like the hummingbird in flight also.

Jean said...

Super hummingbird shot! I can't believe all the blooms you have. I finally have A crocus blooming! Jean

I love it when the first hummingbirds return.

Jake said...

Everything there looks great! I just added last weekend two Society Garlics. Did you get severe weather last night? We sure did, but the rain was so worth it.

Look at all those wonderful blooms, you are way ahead of us. Butterfly bush won't be blooming for sometime yet (probably not till June). Great shot of the Hummer, no signs of them yet here either.

Susie said...

I think your wild onion is up to being "wild". Hehe! Glad to see the hummer. Hopefully they will be here before long.

Titania said...

A great show of your flowers around the garden. Love the butterfly bush. They come and go in my garden!

Sherry said...

What a lovely collection of photos. You have so much blooming already! Great photos, and I especially love the hummingbird shot!

Jay said...

Oh goodness - your hummers have already paid their first visit! I got the hummer feeders out of the cabinet the other day to get ready to hang them. I guess I better get a move on, huh?

This is my first visit to your blog. You've got some lovely photos. I am a gardener, too, and a birder - love the outdoors. I just opened a blog not too long ago (got a new camera and ... oh no!) I'm new at blogging but not gardening. Would enjoy meeting others who love to garden, too. Reading your profile.... if only I knew how to can pears or make fig preserves, I think life would be complete :)

Looking forward to checking out more and visiting again!

Spring is my favorite time of year and your photos show me why.

Reader Wil said...

Beautiful series of spring flowers! Thanks for sharing and also for your visit! Have a great week!

Tarolino said...

You have hummingbirds. How lovely. Seems everything is really on the go over there and on the brink of summer rather than spring.
I really don't know if it's good for my moral to visit sites like this with such a variety of wonderful blooms fully flowering. Outside my window it's not even quite springlike yet.

Lovely series of flower photos. Love the hummingbird too.

Lois said...

All of the pictures are gorgeous Darla! I especially like the close-up of the dogwood flower. Oh and one of my hummmingbird feeders looks just like yours!

Amanda said...

The Prim Rose is gorgeous but my fave is the gerber, I love them in any color.

gardenerprogress/Catherine said...

It looks so pretty there. I just can't believe how far ahead your plants are! Great hummingbird shot! I just saw one at our feeder a few minutes ago.

What a wonderful collection of blossoms! A hummingbird captured..how exciting!

Jama said...

So many beautiful flowers, are they from your garden?

TC said...

"Unglatta!!" what lovely blooms you have there. Unfortunately, it's still a bit early to find blooms in my zone 5 garden.

In my comments I've been known to invent words using the "Word Verification" word.

Shellmo said...

Yea on the hummingbird capture! I was thinking the birds must love your yard w/ the beautiful array of flowers you have!!

Carletta said...

Darla, you must have the most gorgeous of gardens! Your flowers always look so wonderfully healthy.
And...a hummingbird! :)

Carla said...

This is a great and timely capture. There's this video of a guy who is feeding a humming bird. Search for it, I am sure it will bring you nothing but delight.
