I thought it would be fun to see how "Spring has sprung" in your area of the country

These are some pictures I took this morning
I am in NE FL zone 9

The Bottle Brush trees in my backyard are in full glory






Our Backyard smells amazing all 5 of our big citrus trees are in full bloom, looks like we are going to have a bumper crop of oranges lemons and grapefruit



The butterfly garden was hit pretty hard by the 13 days of below 30 temps but it is starting to come back



Peach tree (left ) and an orange tree




These are some of mine I can't wait to see yours

Wow! Karla, your yard is beautiful. Nice photos! OK, you're inspiring me--I'll try to post a few if I can remember to take some. Maybe later today.

the azaleas in my yard are getting past their peak now, but a few days ago they'd knock your eyes out..

I've got columbine, dianthus, daffodils, oxalis, and others blooming right now. Wish I had a lemon tree.



Columbine







Roses







Crimson clover.





A few irises.





Salvia greggii



Dame's Rocket



Red Valerian



My first blue clematis flower



Lots of oxalis





Also, some small azaleas, weigela, and a spirea.

Almost forgot about the lilac.



And here's some dianthus.



Finally, Mountain Bluet.

paperhouse- they are great pics and I really enjoy your blog. What kind of lilac can we grow in NC?
I think I'm in same zone in Chapel Hill you are in but people tell me I can't grow lilacs here. Going to the Farmers Market Saturday in Raleigh and hope to find your lilac.
