Spring flowers

The flowering quince is flowering. Still tiny, but already attracting bumblebees. I never realised I'd planted so many different types of daffodils and narcissus, but each patch is different! And the bleeding hearts are magnificently-shy this year!

Just a couple of blocks further away from the water and the exposure to the winds off the bay, lilac and dogwoods are already flowering. Mine are more reticent: the redbud is still budding, the lilac is not ready at all yet. But this make all the flowers last so much longer!
