My apple trees are blooming in a most luscious color of pink. I stood there for a while, inhaling the perfume, smelled like roses and apples. I'm sure I must have fertilized a few flowers with my nose!
These tulips, I think they look like parrot tulips, are also that same delicious pink color, like strawberry and vanilla. I used to not like pink flowers, no idea why. These are just delightful! *Identified as Angelique Tulips*
A cherry red oriental poppy takes off its hat in the warm sun.
The poppy glows like an ember in flame colors of reds and oranges.
The cactus on my windowsill is blooming in a creamy white color. It's as if a little faerie came by during the night and stuck a bunch of mini flowers all over the cactus.
Losing track of time... I thought the 15th was still a few days off, and here it's already the 18th! I completely missed Garden Bloggers Bloomday, so I'm posting a few days late. These pink tulips just opened this morning, they're so beautiful. I don't know what they're called, they came in a cheap bag of mixed tulips. *edit* Edelweiss Transplanted has identified this tulip as Angelique, and I think she is correct.
Pippin keeps me company while I take photos. The chives are ready to burst into bloom any day now.
Another shot of the pink tulip, Angelique. it looks like a water lily to me.

my three red tulips, backed by blue forget-me-nots.

Tinkerbelle joins me here in the front.
A lot of the front garden is taken over in the springtime by my Mickey Mouse tulips. I've had these for years and years.
They seem to multiply a little bit each year.
There's even one growing in my veggie garden next to the thyme. How it got there, I've no idea.
A blue theme going on.
Some pretty yellow flowers with fancy leaves.
That's it, sorry this is late. I would have posted this morning, except it was a beautiful sunny day, and I didn't want to waste it sitting in front of my computer. So I got a lot of gardening done, lots of weeding!
See what's blooming all over the world, visit Carol's blog for links to Garden Bloggers everywhere. Hope you all have a lovely weekend in the garden.
