It’s finally May! And, in honor of May Day, some kind person left a beautiful bouquet on our front doorstep today.
Isn’t it lovely? The daffodils smell so nice. And, I’m fascinated with the ones that have pale orange centers. I don’t think I’ve ever seen daffodils like that before. They’re very nice.
Around the neighborhood, other plants are in bloom…
The magnolia trees near us are finally opening.
Violets are popping up in many of the lawns.
(Both purple and white ones.)
And, in the past couple of days, the azaleas on the south side of our house have come into their own. They look so tropical – it’s surprising to see them in the same spot where drifts of snow stood just a few weeks ago.
These are not flowers, but they, too, are making a reappearance in the yard after our long, hard winter.
They do a surprisingly good job of clipping the grass. If I was organized, I would move them around the lawn on a regular schedule and never have to mow again. Now, wouldn’t that be nice?
