The First Spring Flowers

The old adage is that “April showers bring May flowers” — but who wants to wait for May for spring to begin?

There are several flowers that bloom as soon as the frost thaws. Winter aconite, hellebore, camellia, pansies, and — of course — crocuses all come up early, giving you brand new flowers for the spring. There are also the aptly named snowdrop and glory of the snow (also known as chionodoxa).

If you prefer to see your blooms overhead, witch-hazel is a tree that offers beautiful yellow or red blooms in early spring. And the lovely and fragrant magnolia blossoms will be blooming in the next few weeks as well!
