oogled all the colorful hillsides bordering the freeways. I could hardly wait to tour my dad's garden to see what was blooming out there.
Ripening strawberries glistened in the sunshine.
The larkspur seeds were from my MIL, my dad now has them blooming everywhere and he sends me seeds for my garden too.
It will be awhile before they are blooming in SLC!
Azaleas petals preened and showed off their silvery bead tipped stamin.
Dancers in a line, awaiting hummingbirds to join in the performance.
(Fuchsias even have pretty leaves and richly colored stems to add to their beauty.)
Camillas down the side yard still had a few showy blossoms.
The camillas come in so many varieties and each one becomes my new favorite as I spy them.
Easter was a bit early this year; the amaryllis was not yet fully opened, yet still sculpturally quite interesting anyway.
Out in front of the house a few roses were unfurling.
And this one with a bead of water accent...another "A+" blossom in the rose garden.
The neighbors to the south have bougainvillea that looks so stunning against their off-white wall and with the red mail box flag the whole scene looks like a magazine cover.
The bougainvillea flower is actually quiet tiny!
