Last Friday, we finally had a sunny day! As they love to say in Minnesota, April showers bring May flowers. However, this year due to an extremely early arrival of Spring, things have played out a little bit differently. The flora that we would normally be seeing in mid-May has come about a month early and is peaking now.
Remember that post I did on the gorgeous Spring flowers I saw last month in Virginia? Well, those same lovely flowers such as the crab apple and cherry trees, tulips, daffodils and irises are now blooming here. Even the wonderfully, fragrant purple lilacs are in bloom sweeping a delicious, sweet smell into my house. The only thing left to come are the peonies.
