April Showers bring May Flowers

There were plenty of showers in April and I'm so happy they gave way to many beautiful flowers.  Last fall was the first time I planted daffodils and tulips and it's been awesome to watch them come up.  And it was especially awesome to learn that daffodils come up year after year!  I had no clue! Here's a pic of our dogwood beginning to bloom surrounded by tulips.

I'm also excited about peonies popping up at all the local flower shops.  They're not yet in bloom over here.  But, I'm trying to surround myself with them inside.  On my kitchen table:

On the fireplace mantle (these beauties were a gift from my mom-in-law):

And then I have some white tulips that I got from a first communion this weekend in the living room.  I rearranged them of course - no baby's breath for me.

I love love love spring!  So does anyone know what May flowers bring?

Pilgrims!  Chuckle, chuckle.  That's my hubby's joke.
