The SO's response:
>Those were fireworks.
It's good to share the silliness sometimes :)
HAPPY VICTORIA DAY!
|The new addition to the household, looking regal|
|Azalea bud. My azalea is currently potted but I think I need to get it in the ground this year.|
|Lilac we discovered growing inside our cedar hedge. I don't know how it got there but every year it gets a little bigger and flowers a little more profusely. It's lovely.|
|Dandelion. I have a love-hate relationship with them.|
|The aquilegia has flowered. I don't know what variety it is but it was a gift from a friend, and apparently they grow wild in his yard.|
|Bird (I think it's a female blackbird) enjoying our hospitality (although not quite as thrilled with me pointing a camera at her)|
|The 'Sensation' lilac in our yard. Prettier than the old-fashioned one in the hedge but doesn't smell nearly as sweet.|
|A large branch broke off our maple during a storm a few months back. We discovered it's currently the home of a family of blackbirds :)|
|Not quite fully opened yet.|
|Interestingly some of the flower panicles on the 'Senation' lilac are pure white. I'm assuming one of its original parents was a white-flowered lilac. Hopefully the whole tree won't revert to white in time, although I don't mind a few pretty white blossoms.|
|A couple more shots of a very handsome kitty (the vet thinks he's got some Siamese in him)|
|What's spring without dandelions? These resilient weeds have tons of culinary and medicinal uses (including Syrup), though, so it's not all bad,|

|Hostas are coming up|
|Periwinkle and Sweet Woodruff|
