Greetings, my friends...
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that your Monday is off to a great start!
The weather over the weekend has been just glorious...
spring is definitely in full swing and we are expecting some April showers later today.
Although I love flowers of all kinds...in any season,
there are a few things that just thrill my heart when I lay my eyes on them...
...I mean I could just look at them all day!
Of course the redbud trees are among them...but you already knew that, didn't you?
It seems like this spring they have been especially lovely and they grow all over the countryside...
...but they are now beginning to fade.
It always makes me sad when I see those magenta blooms being replaced by leaves.
And then there are the dogwoods...
...I especially love them when they are first popping open.
Spring just wouldn't be spring without them.
But what really takes my breath away are the pink ones.
This one grows outside of the office where I work and I look forward to it's blooms every year.
Oh my goodness, I can't even tell you...
...and they are especially beautiful from this perspective too, don't you think?
Last but certainly not least in any way are these lovlies...
...I mean, my heart literally does backflips when I see them...
...well, it least it seems like it does!
I bought these this past weekend for half price...I paid only only $8.00 each!
I have never tried to grow them before...please pray I don't kill them!
So you know that reaction you have when you are watching fireworks on July 4th?
You know the one....oooohhhh!.....aahhhh!
I think you get the message, right?
And for those of you who still have snow, just think of it this way...
When my spring blooms have all but faded away, yours will just be coming on!
