Springtime in the Yard

It is quite pretty out there! The blooms are giving me some good practice with the camera and macros.

I love the details on the stems of the weeping cherry tree.
The azalea are incredibly colorful!
We are waiting for 1 batch of lilies to open. This purple patch are the only ones we have.
Bleeding hearts galore!
The white lilacs are as fragrant as can be.
I believe this is a type of azalea too.
The Japanese maple is full of color.
Fluffy rhododedron balls!
Our stone wall coverings. Very lush! These ivy leaves are massive.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying nature this season too. ~Val
