It usually starts with tulip trees, hyacinths, daffodils, and carolina jasmine.

As the days go on, the fruit trees peach, pear and plum will show full bloom flowers and then the azaleas, dogwoods, and roses will command the stage. Pictures of these and more yet to come...

The tulip tree / magnolia is looking beautiful! :) I'm not sure about the last photo, there's something about it that reminds me of freesias but the flower stem pattern is very different. Do you have any photos of the leaves, or close up photos of the flowers?

Looks flourishing!
All I have in flower in my garden right now are snowdrops. There is the promise of bulbs budding up but nothing quite as striking as your Spring in East Texas today :)

Thanks.

The last one to guess is actually a broccoli plant that went to seed in the garden.

The Quince is now in full bloom:

As is the Jasmine:

The viburnum is just getting started and the snowballs won't be far behind now:

50060



The first azaleas are usually white here and signal that bursting colors of other azaleas are soon to show along with the always beautiful dogwoods and then the roses. Most of the fruit trees have already bloomed except for plums.
