Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

The buds are finally waking up. Week 5

A heavy rain and mild temperatures were the start signal for the buds to grow. I am especially impressed with the magnolia flower for finally showing its splendid colour. The only plant having to be content with less light and a cooler microclimate and therefore far behind the other buds is the azalea. Next week I will conclude this mini-study on the budding development of four of our backyard plants. The cherry trees are now in full bloom and show off their brilliant bridal garments. Enjoy.

  1. Yes, the violets are flowering, here as well, now I consider it spring!
    You have one of those rare red magnolias? Wow, they are quite spectacular!

    Not much development with my rhododendrons, it is a bit weird. My azaleas are also very sulky this year. We had 11 degrees plus today with a strong wind, brrrr.

  2. Hello Peter.

    Lovely flower photos. We had azaleas in our Small garden in 1992-2003. At those days we live on the countryside. I have few garden posts. Thank you showing us these wonderful photos.

    Have a good day!
