It’s been raining off and on for much of the week. Wicked lightning and frightening claps of thunder split the early morning hours; standing rain is a common sight. We hope this means no drought this year, but who knows?
Nevertheless, I managed to step outside between showers and capture a few signs of Spring. Please enjoy!
Trees are beginning to leaf out.
Yellow daffodils are in bloom.
This weeping cherry is a replacement for the blue spruce we lost last year.
This is a closeup of the weeping cherry blossoms. I understand that when they die off, they’re replaced by leaves.
Blue hyacinths dot a neighbor’s yard, wafting their perfume everywhere.
Hyacinths come in pink, too!
No roses yet, but this show rose is full of leaves.
A yellow forsythia hedge.
This magnolia tree is going to be splendid!
Do you call this a jonquil or a daffodil? Whatever, isn’t it beautiful?
