After being buried in snow in Canada for a few days, I came back to find that the Spring was already there at home! So many beautiful flowers!

It first started with crocus, yellow then blue, the first flowers of camellia, and the primroses…

Then came the forsythias, the quince trees of Japan, the hyacints, the violets…

But at this time of the spring, the most beautiful flowers are the camillas! I have four different camellias, but only two are already in flower… So more will come soon!

The apricot tree…

Soon we will have the tulips and later the rhododendrons and the apple and cherry trees… stay tuned!

Here are coming the tulips…and some new camellias too: enjoy!

The red camellia, my favorite, is there! With the cherry tree too…

More photos of the camellias, of our cherry tree, of a small azalea… they all survived the freezing temperatures and the snow we had on April 1st…

The last of our camellia, a pink one, is now showing its flowers…

We have also more tulips, some forget-me-not, and my friend cherry tree, a one with a long story, dating back almost one hundred years ago: it is sour cherry tree , whose “mother” was born 100 years ago in my parents garden…

A tour in my garden this morning, April 15th:

Now it is the start for rhodendrons, lily of the valley, the columbines and peonies….

Iris and clematis…

It is my sixth spring since my “second birth” in June 2016 :-)! Those photos are dedicated to the team at Saint Antoine and in particular my kind graft doctor who saved my life, to my family and friends too. Of course, I don’t forget my anonymous stem cells donor… I love you all very much!

First cup of coffee outside!

Dampierre Castle…sunny and warm!
