I've got lots of green in my south-facing backyard, but most of my plants won't bloom until later in spring, or early summer. My north-facing front yard is where most of the action is right now.

I'm cheating a little because these next few are from April 12th.




Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of the Kerria in full bloom.

But it was covered with flowers like these:


These pictures were taken last night:








Hope you enjoy looking at these pics as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Your pictures are so lovely...I live in Colorado at 7500 feet. It's very dry here, and still in the 30's on most days. Our growing season is very short in the summer months which means that our flowers are limited, except for our wildflowers, which haven't bloomed yet. This is one of the few things that I miss from living down in the valley...Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins. Oh, well...

Yep, Mock Orange is the first one. It just finished up here. The peonies are almost done now.

My echinacea has started. These were grown from seed in the winter of 2008/9



Rose Campion and Red Hot Pokers.



Dianthus, Maiden Pink



Salvia farinacea "Blue Bedder" is just getting cranked up. Sweet Williams are still blooming.



Clematis. etoile violette.



The knockouts have nearly finished their first flush. The ditch lilies will fill the void over the next few weeks.



The first cosmos have bloomed.

Things are just getting started here in Nebraska. It's finally warming up. The irises have been blooming a couple of weeks and the peonies are just now opening up. I'll have the first rose in another day or two.

Thanks for sharing the pictures everyone! A few things are starting to flower, my phlox, tulips are done, bleeding heart and star of Bethlehem, the rest takes longer! I'm in eastern Wisconsin where it is definitely "cooler by the lake" and I'm just blocks away. Yesterday was the warmest so far, humid and almost 80!
