  1. What are those tiny purple flowers at the top? We have them too, and my three year old son has been making "blueberry soup" with them this week. He's beheaded all of them in our front yard :)

  5. Crystal- those purples are grape hyacinth or Muscari and they have a wonderful scent, don't they? Blueberry soup is a perfect thing to make with them.

  6. I have been noticing lots of yellow here. With squash, tomatoes and cucumbers all in bloom there is yellow everywhere. Have a great spring weekend!

  7. After a plethora of yellows and blues, we are just starting to get some serious pinks (camelias, magnolias and rhodos), purples (lilacs and pansies) and whites (blackthorn, apple blossom). I love this time of year. My favourite colour this week is the bright, bright green of the new leaves on the beech trees with the sunlight shining through them.
