Up first, since I'm from Texas, is the Texas Quince.
We usually take close-ups, but that's a collage of a close-up on top of a shot of one patch of the Texas Quince. We have them in three different areas of the yard; they grow like crazy! Those ones are down in the southwest corner of the back yard. Also down there is a big Old Fashioned Lilac bush. They are just now starting to open up. Up in the southeast corner of the yard, we have what we call a "Skidmore" Lilac bush. The blooms on that are a little further along:
The Red Buds out front are starting to open up a lot more. Want to go up there?
Here's an over-all look at the trees:

The blooms are getting fuller each day. While Mom got her close-ups, I sat real still like a good boy.

Here's a branch with the house in the background:

And here's a close-up of some blooms:

I hope you liked seeing those. It took Mom a while to shoot the pix, because we had really gusty winds. The branches weren't real good about holding still. Speaking of holding still, don't worry - I found a way to amuse myself while Mom played photographer!
In case you're wondering, Mom said I was really helpful - and yes, the grass is as comfy as it looks!
