Spring is Near...

This is my favorite time of year! Of all the places I have lived (5 states, 2 countries)Georgia has the prettiest Spring of all. The cherry blossoms, azaleas, day lilies, dogwoods, fruit trees are just magnificent. I also don't need to go very far to enjoy these blooms. My SIL Judy has a wonderful, mature yard full of delights. I love going over there and checking out the yard each day in the Spring. These sweet white buds are from her pear tree. I took this picture last week and yesterday the tree was in full bloom.This is her red bud tree. It has the prettiest shade of fuschia flowers. This tree bloomed the very end of February and was even more interesting when it was covered in the snow from that freakish storm we had. The snow did not seem to bother it a bit!

Speaking of pink...we are getting ready for "The Pinkest Party on Earth".Since we moved here, we have not joined in the festivities, but this year we will try and get there. The cherry blossoms have begun to bloom and I will share the pink with you as we get closer! I hope Spring is coming soon where ever you are. If not, enjoy my pictures and day dream of Spring!

Spring has definitely sprung in your corner of the world! I would love to dive into your photos about now. You don't even want to know what is outside my window today -- rain, sleet, snow and mud -- a delightful mix.

Come check out my latest book giveaway.

I love blossoming trees. Dogwood is my favorite. They smell amazing!

I have less "places in Spring" experiences than you, but moving to Georgia has been absolutely delightful.
Living in San Antonio, Texas which is a location where you had to purchase oxalis for St. Pat's Day, I could not believe the array of buds, blossom, and blooms which create such excitement for my soul every year.
Our daily drive puts us through Forsyth which has Yellow ribbons and forsythia blooms in preparation of its festival this weekend. Then we enter Macon which has the cherry blossoms and pink ribbons for its festival next weekend.
