Flowers from the Earth

I keep composing blog posts about the band trip in my head, but so far haven't had the time to write it properly.  I'm still recovering, and trying to catch up on other things.

Yesterday I remembered that a lot of flowers in our yard had come into bloom while I was away. This morning I rushed outside to take photos, because some of the flowers are almost spent already. Taking photos seemed like an appropriate, if not particularly conservationist, activity for Earth Day.

Happy Earth Day!  Happy Passover! Happy Friday!

Creeping myrtle. 

Kwanzan cherry buds

This lilac tree is almost done.  Except for these buds here.

Is this a Paperwhite Narcissus?  I have no idea, but it's pretty
when it greets me every morning on my way out to get the
newspaper.

Phlox

Snow-in-summer.
