The nights have been warmer lately — in the 50s — and that plus plenty of rain has led to a burst of blooming in my yard. The cherry tree is past peak, but the apple blossoms are fluffy and the sweet woodruff planted around our ash tree as a groundcover is blooming and growing. I may need to pull some of this down the road; it really likes this spot.
The lilacs are opening up and the red twig dogwood are just about to bloom. In front, the tulips have faded, so things look a bit messy, but the blooms of the ‘Purple Sensation’ allium are enough to distract viewers from the mass of greenery below. (I hope!) Here are a few blooms I photographed this morning.
