Spring Flowers

This is what spring is starting to look like around here:

I transplanted these daffs from another location last year. This year, they've popped up very nicely. In years to come they'll fill in and be gorgeous!

These are pink hyacinth.
And these are primroses that grow wild in the yard - primevères in French.
More hyacinths, this time white ones.

  3. Hate to be a stickler, but in French it's spelled "jonquille."

    However, the word "jonquil" exists in English and refers to the European daffodil! I just found that in the dictionary when I was double-checking the French spelling. Bloggers really do learn something new -- about every hour!

Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
