Spring flowers in the orchard

This will be the third summer but only the second spring for our front-yard orchard. Since it was built in late April, none of the springtime ephemeral flowers had been planted yet.

We have three varieties of daffodil, known to me as early, mid and late season.

The contorted flowering quince has thus far only contorted, but it looks like this year it's going to flower too!



Go on, bend down and smell the flowers!


I don't recall what this dainty flower with ferny leaves is called.
There are also buds on the trees and the rhubarb is coming up.
