Yes they are.

I need to get out and take some pictures away from the property. There are some beautiful flowers nearby - in walking distance.

What a beautiful sight. I love waking up and seeing my Blue-eyed grass greeting me. They are such happy faces to greet you in the spring.

I am enjoying all the pretty pics in this thread. Yay for spring!

And thank you to ALittleSalt for posting the photos of the henbit. I was out gathering some flowers with my toddler this morning and she insisted on picking a few for "her" vase. I've had it forever as a "weed" in my yard--a very pretty weed--but I never knew what it was called.

I love the grape hyacinths, too. I had planted a few in one of my flower beds and, in a fit of overly-enthusiastic weeding one year, ending up yanking many of them out by accident. Lo and behold, they have now sprung up throughout my lawn where I must have tossed the weeded-out stuff. And they're growing better in the lawn than they ever did in the flower bed!

That would explain why I haven't seen one. Going by the older zone ratings, we were on the 7B / 8A line. I have experienced it getting down to 0 degrees Fahrenheit here, but only a few times in my 52 years.

I have written about this past fall, we had more acorns on the ground than I have ever seen here. Here's a picture of the results.

Some more pictures from around our place. I don't know what either of the purple flowers are other than wildflowers. It's starting to look like May here on April 3.

Some henbit, I was covering my rows with black plastic and weeding my paths but the honey bees were all over the henbit so I decided to leave it be.
