Nancy Krakauer photographed the inner beauty of one the tulips that spring up every March in her backyard in Pleasanton. "I planted the bulbs about 10 years ago and they keep returning, like an old friend, year after year, providing a colorful welcome to the new season," she says.

Bernard Mander writes: My garden is in Marina Bay Richmond. We are on the water, and high tide is only 50 yards from the flowers. Our roses were pruned and all the leaves removed in mid January, and are now growing like mad. They are full of new leaves and buds and a few flowers. Also the apple trees are in blossom, the bulbs are up, white alyssum is everywhere and the pansies are looking very happy. The garden in front of the house is full of camellias, and roses up to the eves.
