This was the time when we had both Daffodils still blooming and Tulips beginning to bloom. The picture above (taken on 4/8/15) is our big Rose Bed (without Roses this time of year). You can see both Daffodils and Tulips in that bed...

|Bleeding Hearts --taken on 4/9/15|
|A Friend (thanks, Marcia) gave me this Bleeding Hearts bush two years ago. It has done GREAT this year ---and I love those little 'hearts'. (taken on 4/9/15)|
|This is another gift from friend, Marcia... I LOVE Hostas and have many plants around our yard. This is definitely one of the prettiest ones!!!!! (taken on 4/9/15)|
|Our home on 4/9/15; You can tell that there were still no leaves on the big shade trees... Things were turning green --and the Daffodils and Tulips were beautiful, even though the trees made it look 'wintery' still!!!!|
|Another picture looking up at some of our Pink Dogood blooms, taken on 4/11/15; When the sun hits the blooms, the pink almost turns to red... Amazing!|
|Our Groundcover, Periwinkle (Vinca Minor); This is a wonderful ground cover --and the little blue flowers in Spring add so much to our yard! (taken on 4/11/15)|
|The bad winter didn't do any damage at all to our REDBUD trees. I was standing under the tree looking up. The BEES love that tree.|
|One of our REDBUD trees in our yard (taken on 4/11/15); That is the empty lot in the distance... It is always hard trying to get a good picture of that entire tree --but you get the idea of how large it is and how pretty the blooms were.|
|The tiny flowerbed beside the house and the sidewalk leading to the backyard; I have Hostas and Autumn Joy Sedums in this bed. (photo taken on 4/12/15)|
|In the big Rock Bed (near the lower side of the house and driveway), the CANDY TUFT and some PINK PHLOX are blooming. (taken on 4/12/15)|

Today is my BABY BOY's 44th Birthday... Happy Birthday, Jeff.
Hope you enjoyed seeing EARLY Spring in our yard...
Have a wonderful day and week.
