Some of the trees are struggling to put out leaves. This is extremely late for trees here which are normally full of leaves by early to mid-April.
Despite the cold, there are some things blooming. My tulip garden has been in full bloom for a week now.

Last week I bought some pots that fit the deck railing at this house and filled them with diascia and calibrachoa.
Two weeks ago I made a discovery on the side of the house. Three asiatic lilies suddenly appeared in front of the boxwood bushes. I wonder what color they will be.
I found one lonely violet in the back yard. I routinely gather violets in the spring wherever I find them as I walk the dog. I put them in a tiny vase on my kitchen table. To me they are a lovely and true sign of spring.
