I love spring in the mountains. We are situated so that we have the most northern of the southern plants plus the most southern of the northern plants which makes for double the color in spring. It seems like every place you look there is a riot of flowers, shrubs and trees in bloom.
With almost an acre of woods and cleared area, my yard has many clumps of spring blooms still coming up and opening. Right now I have several varieties of daffodils with more to come.
My favorite are the double daffodils and the pastel varieties which have yet to bloom. I also have phlox blossoming in shades of pinks and purple along with the Lenten roses really visible now. Our forsythia is not quite there yet even though I have seen more in bloom in town. The red bud tree is coming along nicely and will be budding in a week or so.
Our neighbors' goats have been escaping almost daily but today the owners checked the fence thoroughly for holes and found the goats around the bend in another neighbor's pasture. Hopefully this will keep them contained! What lovely spring flowers are coming up in your yard?
