This first morning of May was a most lovely one, warmed by that golden orb of Apollo. To greet to the new month, the yellow tulips in the back garden opened quietly, grape hyacinths clustered at their feet. Always love the pay-off to those April showers!
A random related tip: a well-known nursery is offering a magnolia tree with blossoms in that tulip color. It’s called Butterfly Magnolia and you can see it here. Wouldn’t that be a lovely tree?
I had thought the tiny daffodils I’d featured earlier were small…until these latest itty-bitty things opened up yesterday and today. The sweet little blossoms of these new arrivals are only about an inch across.
But I also took this pic(above, right) to give kudos to the cherry tree in the photo: we last saw this happy little fellow in bloom on January 5th of this year. Again so soon! Who’s not impressed…?
And speaking of magnolias…they have also come into full bloom over the weekend, and they are just beautiful, as you can see, so no need of me writing sonnets to them. It was enough that the sight of them put “Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans” into my head for the day.
