I am so happy to change the calendar page over to April. It always seems to me that we can expect warmer weather now although we've been so fortunate this last week of March with sunshine and warm temps.
My Bloodroot ( Sanguinaria) is blooming. Plants start to bloom before the foliage unfolds. After blooming the leaves expand to their full size.
Someone gave me this plant some years ago, not knowing what it was and I had some difficulty getting an ID. It took a knowledgeable man at one of our local plant shops to identify it. Later in summer it will go dormant and disappear, That is why I keep it safely in a pot.
Leopard's Bane ( Doronicum) is full of cheery yellow daisy-like blooms.
The spectacular Magnolia tree makes a splash of colour. We don't have one but the park has several and many neighbours also do.
These last 3 pictures are taken from the internet.
Thanks for coming by today. Hope you are having a great week and maybe even great weather.
