Around the neighborhood, late winter/ early spring flowers

12 Mar

March 12th, a beautiful sunny morning, warmest one yet since yesterday was also sunny and nice, and the plants are responding accordingly…

Primroses, both those bought this year and from previous years, are some of the brightest spots of color. As are the various early daffodils.

In the background you can see a few flowers of an old andromeda bush too.

Down the way a bit, one of the early Rhodies is blooming a bit

Some nicer andromeda bushes
