A few spring flower pictures
... from the front and back garden on the last day of April.
March was unusually warm over here, then April colder, even with frosts again and wet and a lot more like typical for the season but it didn't feel right after that too warm March.
The last three days now have been hot. Over 30°C in some places. Summer temps! I think April just doesn't want to be said it was colder than the month before :-)
So here are some pictures:
One of the short red tulips that just do the weirdest things when taken pictures of, colourwise.
The wild white-and-yellow tulips. I love these for their simpleness ;-)
A bee on a hellebore. Look at all that pollen on her hind leg.
Narcissus are called "Easter bells" over here, because that's when they usually are all out there in all theirgorgousness. For me there is not much around that says more "spring is here" than narcissus and tulips.
A primula we bought for the big pot in the front yard. Flowering on long stems.
Our little olive tree hibernated in our bedroom. That was a lot better than last year in the basement. Now it is at it's old place on the patio enjoying the sun.
Thanks for coming over! Tina
