The first flowers to bloom are the crocuses, dwarf iris, and scilla.
|If you follow me on Instagram, you already saw this photo of a sneaky purple crocus.|

|One must have a gargoyle to guard and protect the crocuses.|
Next, some dwarf iris:
|Such a sweet little flower|
|We have a ton of scilla growing by the driveway, so when I walk out to my car, I'm greeted by this sight.|
The next flowers to bloom are hellebores, pulmonaria, and hyacinths.
|Hellebores have "nodding" flowers, so I had to lift this one to show you the inside.|
The pulmonaria (aka lungwort):
|This variety is "Raspberry Splash"|
And the wonderful hyacinths:
|That black hose is our soaker hose, which we will probably pull up because it didn't work last year -- the timer that attaches to the spigot leaked. :(|
My favorite spring flowers are crocuses (which is why I have so many photos of them), because they come up and bloom first, and they add a bunch of color to the basically naked garden.
The tulips and daffodils will hopefully bloom soon!
Do you have any favorite spring flowers?
