New Milford was in bloom when I returned from a two week visit with grand babies in Texas. This is a different world from West Texas, which is going in to the third year of a severe drought.
It seemed like everything was yellow, red or pink. I have no idea what these shrubs are but they are beautiful!
Daffodils grow wild on the roadsides, and are in nearly every yard.
Yellow, white and pink in one yard on Church Street.
The tulips were completely opened.
This is a yard over by St. Mark's Episcopal Church.
These are magnolia trees. Most people are probably used to magnolias with the big white blooms that you see in Houston, San Antonio, and sometimes even in West Texas.
The blossoms are not nearly as big as the white magnolia, but it is easy to see the family resemblance.
One of the most beautiful houses in New Milford is a bed and breakfast.
Now, the yellow blossoms are shattering, and making the streets pretty.
This drive way behind St. Mark's is covered with yellow and pink petals.
I was so excited to see a real, live dog wood.
This looks like the James Avery necklace that I have!
Lilacs are about to pop open.
I don't know what kind of fruit this tree will have, but it is going to be loaded.
These blossoms almost look like double holly hocks. Now, there is a flower I have not seen here--holly hocks.
There are lots of violets and pansies, and
"Flowers are appearing on the earth. The season for singing has come. The cooing of doves is heard in our land." Song of Solomon 2:12
