It is such a joy when Spring arrives and the flowers and trees begin to bloom here in Western Kentucky where we live.
Forsythia with their bright yellow blooms are the first signs of spring in our yard. Did you know it has the common name of Easter tree.
The jonquils are also early bloomers in our area. Seems like I had more blooms this year than last.
The jonquils make lovely arrangements for the table.
The bearded iris just started blooming this week in my flower bed; the deep purple color is just stunning. So showy!
You can see the buds on the azalea just behind the iris starting to open.
We had frost a few nights ago; I covered my azaleas (and lots of other plants and shrubs) with sheets trying to keep the buds from freezing. Looks like my precautions saved the buds.
Creeping phlox are blooming. They have five-star blooms that can reach an inch across.
Our dogwoods are young trees and have rewarded us with white blooms and pink blooms.
Thanks for stopping by to see the blooms in my Western Kentucky yard - Judy.
