We made it through the winter, my friends! There are flowers blooming all around the farmyard. Kristi informed me that the Trilliums were in bloom in our little forest, so I gave her my camera and asked if she'd go get a snap for me. :-) This flower is truly a harbinger of Spring here in the Pacific Northwest.
The flower below - I can NEVER remember what this is! The leaves are almost identical to the Rhododendrons, but they have these ivory colored flowers all over them. They have a slightly sweet aroma. Worse, is I've even called the nursery to ask them what it is and have identified it in the past and have forgotten. Do YOU know what this is? (ETA: It's a "Skimmia Japonica" - I found it after much looking on my blog history!)
Our huge old red Azalea is blooming.. it has something wrong with it's leaves but it still growing and blooming each year.
The purple Lilac is coming along.. I can't wait until it's in full bloom!
With the cool damp weather, the Daffodils are holding up well in the garden. Are yours up?
I believe this variety is called King Arthur.. do you know? They are very big blooms.
