18th March ~ Sunday

Yesterday was Saint Patrick's Day! A day late, but I'm still celebrating!

Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Duit

Today is an overcast day with rain supposedly on the way. But I got out my new camera (Yay!!!!) and snapped the progress of a few flowering plants in the yard.

A neighbor's cherry tree

One of my Daffodils

Old fashioned Lilac as it prepares to bloom

Creeping or Carpet Phlox as it begins to open - the blooms will soon cover the plants greenery entirely.

A Wisteria as the bloom pod begins to open.

Forsythia bush - not quite fully in bloom. The flowers proceed the new green leaves every year.

Close up of the Forsythia or Yellow Bells as they are called locally.
