Rhododendron – SOOC

Rhododendron Buds and Leaves - Straight Out of Camera

It is fun to watch as the perennials prepare to bloom – today I saw that my bleeding heart had popped out of the ground. Daffodils are now in bloom, as are cherry trees and magnolias. Crocuses and snowdrops have already faded away. Tulips and columbines are green and showing budding signs.

On this previous post you can see the rhododendron in bloom last year.

Yes, I think Spring is a great time of year, too. I've got lots of blooms; I'm lovin' it.

It is fun to watch plants come up in the spring, isn't it? My gardens are behind yours but they are coming alive too. YAY

Ilana-Davita says

Your garden sounds remarkably like mine at the moment. We also have periwinkles and the forsythias are in bloom.

Leora says

Yes, we also have yellow forsythias showing their flowers in the backyard, and neighbors down the block are featuring periwinkles. Similar spring stage!
