Flowers Make Me Happy!

Some photos from my yard and around the neighborhood...

Daffodils in the front yard
Anemone

A neighbor's daffodils, and I like them in contrast with the
limestone steps


Forsythia

Crocus


Don't know the name of this one (do you?). It's not hyacinth, but it sure is lovely!

Happy Birthday!

I believe the mystery flower is Scilla mischtschenkoana, also sometimes called S. tubergeniana. The common name is White Squill.

How nice that you live in an area where the flowers are blooming on your birthday. Here, the crocuses are just starting to push up.

Happy birthday.

It is so exciting when the flowers start to show their beautiful faces in the spring. I love your pictures and don't know what that blue one is at the bottom either.

A March birthday, of course. I love having a March birthday and you fit right in with your creativity. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

Beautiful spring flowers! We have another month before they get to that point. Right now we have crocus blooming and it's so thrilling to see the bits of color against all of the brown.
Thanks for sharing, Steph!
