Banner year for this rhodie - bouncing back after the ~2009 invasion of lace bugs into Oregon that has made it tough for rhododendrons and even worse for azaleas. I reluctantly resorted to using a systematic pesticide two years ago to keep the bugs from defoliating this old beauty.

Pink blooms so abundant on a rhododendron they nearly conceal all the leaves.

As we experience our 3rd consecutive overnight of late-April frost warnings here in Metro Detroit, I wanted to document our backyard magnolia blossoms before they brown and fall away. I don’t expect them to survive the week, but they at least had a longer run than they did last Spring.

A closed pink-and-purplish magnolia bud, backlit by the late afternoon sun, and beaded with water droplets after  a brief rain shower.
Our two backyard magnolia trees in bloom, the flowers white and pink and magenta. A petal-covered path leads to the wood French doors of our living room. English ivy covers the ground on other side of the path.
A full bunch of open magnolia blossoms from our more mature tree. The petals start out purple to dark pink before fading to white.

This image was taken last year at Holland Ridge Farms in Cream Ridge, NJ. They don't have an opening date yet. The tulips still haven't reached full color yet. Hopefully within the next week!

I'm looking out at all the white snow in my front yard and thinking about the brilliant spring blaze of colour at Carlsbad Ranch Flower Fields in California. #lovetotravel #springblooms #VisitCalifornia #CarslbadRanch

Thanks to Julie who suggested tooting images of pictures to brighten up our feeds during a cold, dreich and miserable January (in the northern hemisphere). I thought I'd include this image of wildflowers.

There's a tiny bit of ground in our village that was useless - until some genius decided to throw down some wildflower seeds. Now, every year, we have a bright, colourful display.
