First Blooms of 2013

The first bloom of the year in my yard opened today. It is a dark, windy and rainy day here but I tried to get a photo.

These little weeds began blooming too. I love their delicate tiny purple flowers. When I was little I used to gather many different tiny blooming weeds for fairy bouquets. I was very fortunate in that my grandmother encouraged my imagination and gave me tiny glass bottles to put them in.

So pretty. I will have to wait until April to see anything like it.

Very pretty! I saw a cherry tree in bloom yesterday and was shocked.
