What's in Our Yard

I thought I would share some of the spring with you. These flowers are currently blooming in our yard.  I don't know the name of this bush, but the flowers are very striking.  I had to take this picture and share.  While I was at it I thought you might like some of the other things blooming in the yard.
 The forsythia were almost finished blooming, but I did get a shot of these remnants of their flowers.  I could have taken some better pictures of forsythia elsewhere, but I wanted to stay in the yard.

These delicate small flowers grow in the lawn every year at this time.  My ex partner's mother always referred to them as "May pink".  As you can see they are clearly blue.  There were some that were white.  They appear to me to be a kind of wild pansy. Unfortunately, they disappear as soon as the lawn is mowed.

Of course the most common flower this time of year is the one below.  We have lots of these!  We have no daffodils though.  Sigh.

Enjoy the Spring!

Love, Shel
