Blooms of the week - 1st post of 2009!

I can't tell you how happy I am that gardening season is here. Every day when I get home from work, I rush outside with my camera to see what's blooming. (Of course, Samantha doesn't appreciate this, and I'm greeted with angry meows when I come back inside.) Anway, here's what's blooming in my backyard this week.

I planted this in the fall, but I have no idea what it's called, but I love it -- looks like a mini iris to me.

The daffodils are finally here after all the cold, wet weather.

A purple crocus.

Here's the quince when it's just starting to open...

... and when it's open all the way.

And here's one last flower that's been taking its time to open up...

... and finally open! So beautiful -- I just love the purple veins.
Hopefully there will be many more blooms to come!
