Enjoying Easter

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter! It was such a beautiful day here!
Spring has arrived here, and there is a lot blooming and more to bloom soon! I spent Easter at The Dirt Queen's (my mom) house. I took some photos of her garden, as well as mine.

Lovely flowers! Dirt Queen's garden must have been really beautiful. The daffodils look so special - double bloom type?

Your pics of yours and others blooms are so clear and beautiful. Lovin' those gorgeous mosaics! My Bradford pear and forsythia are bloomin'. The red bud tree is about to burst forth and I have many green crowns above the earth so soon and very soon. I hope! :o) I have a dump truck load of mulch comin' in sometime this week. I've got it bad baby!

May God bless your Tuesday!!!

I had to work on Easter so it wasn't much fun.

What great photos, April! I can see you've been enjoying your new camera!

What a feast for the eyes!! Love your camera. Any panoramic shots? I think I have a white daffodil that looks like yours. Wasn't it a beautiful Easter Sunday? So that's the Ajuga. I have seen them all around but wasn't sure what they were.
