Sheesh! I've been having all sorts of problems uploading my pictures. :roll:

But I've done it now. The pictures aren't great - it was kind of windy when I took the pictures and that made it difficult to focus. But here they are. They are all growing around the apartment complex. I'll try and get some better ones over the next few weeks. :D

Ah York! Beautiful Mystmoon! It is always lovely when the Daffs are out. Tell your sister she was really hamming up the cuteness!

Tony, Lovely unusual flowers. I love the white ones. They all look really suitable for the terrain!

I was out walking today and I thought with Spring starting to bounce into blossom, I'd give this thread a gentle bump. :D

I'm not to sure what these are. I first thought "Elder", but it's the wrong time of the year for them to flower (I believe). If anyone knows, please tell me.

Sorry about the intruder barging in, I think its a Brimstone butterfly.

Lovely pics, Penners! :D It's so nice to see so much colour after what seems like such a long winter.

Probably Blackthorn Penners, Hawthorn comes out after the leaves usually a bit later in the year.
