Spring Flower of the Day

I'm not really sure what this flower is called. I call them snowballs because that's what they look like. They grow on a bush and bloom only in the Spring.

These roses have the most amazing scent. When I think of the scent of roses this is the one I think of. I wish you could smell it.

Spring Flower of the Day

This is a wild flower that is very annoying, but pretty. I don't know the technical name, but we call them wild onions. When you pull them out of the ground they have tiny little onions at the end. They have a very strong onion smell. Each little flower head becomes a new plant, which is what makes them annoying. They get everywhere, especially where you don't want them.

And here is the after photo.

Quite the difference. I am so enjoying it. That's it for today folks.
