Spring bloomed late this year. Canada's back door was open keeping the northeast in the deep freeze. This resulted in our blossoms lasting weeks longer than usual.
The daffodils showed their sunny smiles well into May.
Under their yellow shadows were the dainty blue grape hyacinths (muscari).
Finally, just this week they dropped all their bright leaves and made way for their short, later-blooming cousins.
Wouldn't you agree that these double-petaled, ruffled tulips are real beauties?
Their delicate pink color blends beautifully with the pink dogwoods.
And behind the pink blossoms, the lilac's sweet smell beckons a passerby to come hither.
