I’ve always liked that phrase. A selection of blooms from my mom’s garden. I’m cheating a bit, these were all taken in April. But most of them were the last couple days of April – that’s close enough, isn’t it?

  1. A lovely reward for a long, dreary winter. But I have to wonder what April snows bring!

  2. Beautiful selection! That snowdrop is especially eye-catching with its green-tinged centre.

  3. Seabrook- Very nice photos, I’m going to have to pick the hellebore as my favorite. Is that Veratrum viride?

  4. those are so pretty!

    Thanks everyone!

    Tom: Not that I’m aware of, but I’ll be honest in that I just know the common name of hellebore. I think it’s just a standard nursery cultivar of the genus Helleborus.
