May  Flowers 2008
May 11, 2008

It's Mother's Day on the old farm.
Actually, it's Mother's Day everywhere in the US.

The tulips are at their peak.

The colors seem exceptionally strong this year.

This one blooms all alone.
Did we plant it?

The  multiples are the last of the daffodils.

The grape hyacinth really does look like a bunch of grapes!

White bleeding-heart.

Next will be the chives, allium, and lilacs.

To quote Kathy:

If April Showers bring May Flowers,
What do May Flowers bring?
