Spring Flower Show in My Backyard

Last week was the most spectacular week for Maryland gardeners. I say it with confidence because I experienced it (with some of my lucky friends) from my own backyard's flower show. The abundant camellia blossoms on the tall bush next to its protective myrtle tree, the happy tulips lining along the pathway, the petite pale pink plum flowers dotted amidst the budding leaves by the gazebo, the light blue ground covering violets........ Well, the show has to end somehow and the spring rain today brought down Kwansan cherry's petals like a fluffy snow shower--another type of beauty in my eyes.
Spring shower brings May flowers. I shall reveal another flower show next month.
