Mayflowers starting to bloom!

I just went out in the backyard woodland area to see if I could find some Mayflowers...mostly I saw this, a lot of buds getting ready.

But then, I saw this cute little dark pink Mayflower sticking up, saying hello!

And then, I finally found this nice little grouping of buds, all starting to open - very pretty! Each plant has its own intensity of pink - some are white, some are just lightly kissed on the edges with pink, and some are really dark pink (not to fushia level, still a true "pink").

So, the official flower of Nova Scotia is doing well, and ready to dazzle us Nova Scotians again with its beautiful display!
