Spring beauty


These are what greeted me this morning when I opened the curtains.

We only have a few of these tulips and will have to hunt for some more bulbs this fall.  They are simply stunning and look so bright in the sunshine.

The flowering almond is absolutely covered in blossoms - last year we had hardly any.  Now we are just hoping we won't get any frost or (horrors) S- - - like they're getting in Calgary!
