Beautiful Spring ~ March 31, 2010
It was a perfect spring day here-in fact the past several days have been very fine!
Oh! Spring is in full swing right now and is much too fleeting to suit me, once it starts it's thing!
In my yard, my red bud blooms and the white plum blossoms are almost over- though in other places around town they are still showing! It's a pleasant drive, where ever we go.
Of course the Camellias have had their time for this season, too.
Dogwood trees are in bloom also. I have one tree and it has a nice spread of blooms but not as much as it might in a sunnier location. On our street are several others in full bloom, so I count my blessings!
The Wisteria is blooming too- a once a year-short duration bloomer, but a flower I truly love; it has such a sweet and delicate fragrance and soft blue/violet color! I will take some pictures when it's bloomed out more.
Even my little meadow wildflowers are starting to bloom...I was afraid C. had cut the meadow too late to have many blooms but it looks like they will make it after all! We'll see-I love that meadow and so do the butterflies! :)
But the stars right at this moment are...the Azaleas and they are unbelievable in their beauty! Everywhere you look -driving anywhere- or in my case just looking out my window- we see a profusion of various shades of pink and white. When in full bloom you see hardly any green at all!
I was outside for awhile today and I picked some of the Azaleas for bouquets in my house!
Tomorrow is my husband's birthday and we will be going out for dinner with some of the family. We haven't decided where we'll go yet-guess we'll let C. pick the place! :)
On Easter Sunday we'll have a family dinner here which I will prepare. Am looking forward to seeing my Kids and Grands or as many as can make it! Oh! Yes, I'll do my colored eggs too....wonder if I can get anyone to hunt for them! :)
Enjoy your spring,
