Spring in Charlotte, NC

At around this time every year, my aunt in Charlotte NC sends across pictures of the spring bloomers in her garden. A true flower-lover, she writes -

"This is the time of year when life is renewed in my yard and my spirits are lifted along with the blooms!"

First on are the hyacinths. Much like the tulips, these plants are of South West Asian origin, but have been grown so widely for commercial purposes in the Netherlands that many assume that is where they are from.

Then come the tulips and the pansies. 

And lastly, the bright beautiful Narcissus Daffodils

Do take a look at the pictures from 2009 and 2010
