A flower tour of our yard

It's May and everything is blooming! Here's a quick tour of our yard.

In the front yard, under the spruce tree, are the irises.

Alliums (blooming onions) are in both the front and the back yard.

I have pots of pansies by the front steps.

One small lilac bush is planted in the back yard. It is awfully close to the pine tree, so it may never bloom all that much. Here are the only blossoms on it this year (notice the ladybug, top left!).

This last photo is of the tree in the back yard. There's also one in the front yard, but not quite as spectacular. They'll have red berries later, that the squirrels love to eat. I don't know what kind of tree it is -- a hawthorn of some type? I'll have to look it up.
