Catch Up Post #3: Spring!

I’ve said it in so many posts, I didn’t bother to backlink it… I love the Spring in North Carolina. Daffodils, Tulips, Azaleas, Dogwoods! And I have them all in my yard! This is the front of my house.

This Spring came a lot later than last year. Last year we transitioned from Fall directly into Spring. We had Azaleas in February. This year they waited until April.

You can’t really tell from the small house photo, but the new addition this year is the tulips and boy were they welcome!

And I added a few extra daffodils this year, which came in different colors and sizes than the yellow ones we already had.

I also have peach trees which blossom pink and white.

The last ones to the party this year (so far) are the dogwoods.

And there’s always my go-to subject, the Japanese Maples.

Still yet to come are my Apple and Pear trees, and a bunch of other randomness I have yet to shoot!
