The flowers barely last a week.
I know - I post photos of them every year....
They were at their peak about March 7th which is the earliest it has ever been.
I love them and they are the most colorful thing in the yard all year.
I just LOVE the color. I can't get enough of them.
It is interesting to compare when they bloom each year.
In 2011 I missed taking a picture as I was at Focus on Fiber, which means the peak was around St. Patricks Day.
In 2010 they were in full bloom on April 2.
In 2009 they were at their peak on March 16th, but the bushes were still relatively small.
