This year, our New Jersey spring has been a slow, cold affair. It's also been dry, further slowing the progression of blooms. Even so, blooms and blossoms have begun to take hold in my corner of the state. The dogwood is in on the action with the crisp white flowers that make the tree so splendid in the Spring.
My collections of tulip patches have grown. The yellow flowers in the front yard are fully open and feature a showy streak of red.
In the backyard are some tall, elegant dark pink tulips.
There is some rain in today's forecast and if today's April showers are followed by warmth then Spring's glory will be everywhere come May. That's happy!
