The apple tree has never been so full of blossoms.

This black swallowtail is enjoying the nectar.

The candytuft has become hills of white blooms.

The redbuds in the picture are at their peak. The next day there was a red carpet of blossoms covering the driveway.

The wild dogwood trees were full, but the hybrid pink and red dogwoods had very few blooms.

The azaleas are just starting to bloom here, and the rhododendrons have only a few starting to come out.

They all need to be cut back. Maybe a few will get done this year.

These are planted around my kerosene tank to help hide it. They are in the back yard so few people see them, but I enjoy looking at them while I hang up clothes.

This is one of my favorites. It was cut back last year, but needs more.

Periwinkle keeps invading this azalea, as well as all the ones along the front below my deck.
