Flowers in Our Garden

Good morning,

Recently I published images of the gorgeous magnolias at Eden Park and I have one from that outing in my header.  Today's image above is our little magnolia tree in our front garden. It has brought us beautiful flowers every year for the 32 years we have lived here.
Here are a few more blossoms...
...the very light daffodils...
 ...the fragrant daffodils...
 ...the red bud trees...
...tulips...
...and the promise of beautiful peonies in just a few more weeks.

Enjoy!

Lois

Thanks for sharing. I just love spring when the flowers bloom.

I'm enjoying your spring, since ours has been delayed.

These photos are so pretty. Please post lots of pictures of your peonies because they are my very favorite flower! My neighbor has a few peony bushes, but I have never tried my hand at them!

Thanks for a truly lovely post.

Such a lovely home you have, Lois. A reflection of your lovely person :-) I love redbuds, and we have several around our home, and our peonies are also coming forth.

Happy Easter and Spring to you!

Hi Everyone,

I'm afraid we won't be home when the peonies bloom. I'll have to ask daughter Catherine to send us some images and I'll share them here.

Thank you so much, everyone, for stopping by and your very kind comments.

Very best,
Lois
