Daffodils are not only fully up, open and blooming like crazy but some are already withering because the sun has been too hot.
I painted this back in April of 2009. I would not have seen these blooming that year in early March as we are now. Something is not right in the season. It is Too Early.
Do you see the date on this watercolor from 2009? April! These hyacinths have already been blooming for a week. Oh, but they smell heavenly.
These are the most intensely blue Scilla. They are all over the front yard, but again, too early. I always await these in the spring with much anticipation because I love this blue hue. They have shown up and bloomed before I had time to anticipate.
A white tulip from a year ago, almost blown open.
Azaleas are open too. And these are usually a flower we see in May for Mothers' Day. Six weeks too early, what is going on?
