April is Blooming

 

Early April Blooms on Paper

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The snow has almost disappeared in the area with just the odd places where the sun does not get to.   The Hellibore Niger was the first to appear as soon as the snow melted and this morning the early yellow crocus appeared.   We are going to have rain tomorrow but that is good as it will wash away all the salt and sand left on the grass from the winter snowplows.   Everything will be freshened up and appear brand new.    I hope that you are enjoyed the beginning of spring in your area.    Have a great week.   Valerie

Our gracious host Mary encourages us to participate in Mosaic Monday.   It is where friends meet.  See you there

How silly of me not to have any crocus in my yard! Really must plant some.

Lovely mosaic!

Hi Valerie,
It is so nice to see signs of spring. We still have two ft. of snow in spots and bare in other spots.I was happy to see some crocus blooming though.
looks like you are well on your way to gardening season.
