Spring Flower Show

This post goes out especially to Alice Lynn in WV who had a WHITE Easter! and to Jolene in western NC who drove home from work today in snow showers!  Walk around my yard and enjoy the signs of Spring in the Lowcountry of SC.

imgp0406-009.jpgHere are our native lilies – Atamasco Lilies – also known as wild Easter Lilies.

imgp0404-007.jpgA lone and very brave Gerber Daisy – we are supposed to have a freeze tonight so I hope she’s also very hardy.

imgp0402-005.jpgI love these little purple guys – not sure of their name – Spiderwort maybe?

imgp0400-003.jpgFlowering quince, also known as japonica.

Next up – the azaleas – what we are famous for!

    Soo pretty! I like those Japonicas (sp?) We had heavy frost this morning and snow yesterday. Brrrr. I’m ready for Spring!

    Nice pics, Karen. We stopped at the arboretum in Columbia today and saw some beautiful spring flowers there. You must have a nice yard with all of those flowers to photograph.

    It’s a LARGE yard, Judy – over 3 acres. Way more than we need but nice to keep the world at bay. Luckily, DH, fondly known as The Ref, likes to ride the mower. I noticed today that a couple of my flower beds are over run (again) with wild artichoke. UGH! There is nothing that kills that pest except HEAT and I can’t wait that long. So I guess I’ll be pulling and mulching a lot over the next few weeks.
