  2. Wow! I know that everything blooms in your garden much earlier than mine, but I still can't believe all that is blooming for you in April already!

    1. I love those morning glories. They are planted alongside moonflowers and the two together are quite amazing. Unfortunately, there were no moonflower blossoms open when I took the picture.

  4. I am thinking the same thing but for us, it's cherries, Bradford Pears, daffodils and crabapples - everything seems to be popping up at once. Still have some forsythias blooming in some yards and, meanwhile, the lilacs are getting ready to open. Wait! Stop! I need to catch up!

  5. Gosh Dorothy, I feel as if I have just leapt forward six weeks in this post. How exciting - your flowers are beautiful and in a week of sleet, snow and frost, you have reminded me of how much we have to look forward to! Thank you!

  6. Wow, I know you are much earlier than us, but even so - lovely to see all your summer blooms! My sunflowers are still tiny seedlings and my roses are in buds, but we'll get there eventually :-)
    Happy gardening!
