These pink trees are planted along many streets, in yards and even in shopping centers here. They are beginning to open and soon the whole town will be dancing in pink
There are double flowering and single flowering trees - all over town
White flowering trees are starting to bloom too - light as clouds
Pussy Willows have been budding for a while now - but I still find trees full of the fuzzy catkins
Forsythia is seen on almost every street - some in hedges - some single bushes - all sunny and bright
A few Forget-me-nots in a warm corner of a yard
All colors and sizes
Even in the meridians in the freeways
It's a daffodil spring!
The skunk cabbage is popping up in the swampy areas
For all to enjoy!
A few azaleas are beginning to bloom
And the heather is in full swing - a little later than usual
I saw the first Tulip Tree with buds almost open today - and yes, I shall always insist on calling it a Tulip Tree - it is such a pretty name for such a pretty tree.
Pansies overwinter here - and are blooming even in the cool weather
Yes indeed - spring is definitely here - my pansies are ready to plant - I had very few that overwintered so I have to start fresh this spring. I can't wait to get started.
In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. ~Margaret Atwood
