April Flowers

Juniper--- Dianthus--- Lilac
Crabapple--- Bradford pear--- Redbud
Holly--- Flowering plum--- Tulips

The sun was well up and I had had a second mug of coffee.
Before I picked up sticks, mowed the lawn or otherwise turned a wheel,
I with camera in hand took a stroll around the yard.
I am a believer: Spring is real.

Tis spring.
The bird is on the wing.
But that's absurd.
I thought the wing was on the bird.

Andrea, we are so grateful for that blessing!

Bob, we kids used to say (in our imagined "Brooklynese")
"Spring has sprung
da grass has riz
da boid is on da wing.
Now dats absoid, I'd always hoid
da wing was on da boid."

Beautiful flowers! Early flowers are one thing I do miss since moving to CS.

Hooray for spring!! I love to inhale all the sweet smells this time of year. Thank goodness I don't have allergies!

Vee, there are good things to be said for Indiana!

Lin, you are blessed to be able to enjoy the aromas without the sniffles and stuffies.
