The Requisite Spring Flower Post

Every year we've lived in L-Town, I've posted photos of the early spring perennials blooming in our front yard.

So I couldn't possibly skip this year, could I?

You may get sick of looking at the same flowers every year. But then again, how can you ever tire of looking at lovely yellow daffodils?

I looked back at the previous four (four!) years worth of spring flower photos. I'm pretty sure that this is the earliest our daffodils and hyacinths and other tender buds have been up since we've lived here. But then again, what do you expect when you have a week of 70s and 80s in early March?

In 2008, I waited until April 20 to post pictures, at which time the tulips were blooming. (At the rate we're going this year, that may be next week.) In 2009, the spring flowers made an appearance while there was still snow on the ground on March 31. Then in 2010, the daffodils were still going strong on April 18.  As for 2011? I got particularly gung-ho about the flowers, posting not one, not two, not three, but four different times about them in April.

(Oh, and in case you were wondering, yes, that's a Butter leg that keeps making an appearance in the photos above. He followed me around the yard sniffing and peeing on all the pretty flowers as I snapped photos of them. I went ahead and edited out the ones where you actually see him urinating. I hope you don't mind.)

Loves all these flowers! It seems so early for bulb flowers, but I guess it's nearly April! xoxoxo
