Aloha Friday - First Flowers of Spring

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. Every Friday (well, ok, almost every Friday) I ask a simple question for you to answer--nothing that requires a lengthy response.

Today, I spotted the first spring wildflowers in my yard...

Mexican Evening Primrose!  They're natives wildflower that we discovered in our yard last year.  They are actually a very pale pink, though they look white in this picture.  The ones in my front yard are pinker, but they haven't started blooming yet.

So, this week's question is...
What were the first flowers to appear in your yard (or are you still waiting)?  And what state/country is your yard in?
You can answer in the comments.  Thanks!

If you have a blog and would like to post your own questions you can leave your link  at the linkys at An Island Life.


  1. As a resident of New York State we are still waiting. While out for a walk over the weekend we saw the start of tulips coming out of the ground. We seem to be warming up now. I think we may go from 30 and cold to summer. Monday may be almost 80.

  2. Love those primroses! Here in Pennsylvania we're still waiting for anything to bloom - Mother Nature's been messing with us so far this year. ;)
