A Pleasant Surprise

When we moved into our home last July, the spring blooms were long gone. The yard was beautiful but mostly green. What a pleasant surprise I've had this spring to see all the beautiful blooms I had missed last year. God is so good !!!

A dwarf dogwood with beautiful pinkish/salmon colored blooms
I'm not sure what this beautiful orange flower is. If anyone knows, please educate me. The round red things are from last year's blooms. Am I supposed to cut those off?????
This azalea surprised me. I didn't even know it was there until it bloomed.
Who knew Japanese Maple trees bloomed? Not me. The bees were buzzing away in the little blooms of this tree yesterday.
