Thanks to our weirdly warm spring, I have more blooming in my garden than usual this Bloom Day.
Normally, the daffodils wouldn’t make an appearance for a couple more weeks, but this year, at least two varieties are already blooming.
Stalwart crocus comes back yearly, despite the ravenous squirrels who raid my garden. I’m amazed they haven’t found these yet.
The star magnolia is so gorgeous as it blooms. From unfurling buds…
to fully open blooms.
I fear that the predicted return of cold and rainy weather this weekend spells doom for the magnolia blooms. The daffs will likely be fine, but I’ll pick some bouquets in case the weather tramples down all the open ones.
As I was photographing the magnolia, one of our local mafia stopped by to attempt to intimidate me with his beady little eyes.
