First Day of Spring



Leaves are leaping and blossoms are bursting. Well, a few anyway. Most of the native plants are too smart to be fooled by a mere date on the calendar and will take their own good time to wake up. Many of the Prunus species (plums, apricots, cherries,etc) are in full bloom, as are the Pyrus (pears) and Forsythia.

Can you guess what exotic plant this bud is on? The answer will be revealed when the flower is in full bloom…

Happy spring!

Happy spring! Is your mystery flower a magnolia of some sort?

Beautiful photo. I can't even hazard a guess on this one, but what the heck. I'd say peach.
