Happy Spring!

We've had some gorgeous Spring weather the past week. I hope you are seeing signs of Spring where you live, as well.

The Yoshino cherry tree in our front yard always looks gorgeous in full bloom. Yesterday it was a little breezy and for a  minute it looked like it was snowing with all of the cherry blossom petals flying through the air.



I never get tired of looking at it.


Some gorgeous tulips are blooming at a local shopping center.

I love driving past this field on the way home.


Back at home,
the Camelias I planted years ago on the north side of our house are in full bloom.




The best part of growing flowers in the garden is bringing them indoors to enjoy!


Hope you are enjoying your first days of Spring!

Pam

  8. Our shrubs and trees are in bloom as well :) NOW, if we just didn't have to have the 80+ degree weather to go with it :/ Good 'ole central Alabama. Hot and humid as the day is long in Spring and in Summer (which seems to last until October!) haha

  17. Great pictures Pam! We're still a couple (few?) weeks away from seeing the tulips, daffodils and other blooms. I'm certainly ready for them!

    I love your pictures of your camellias. We had them in our first house and they were beautiful! We haven't lived in a climate to have them since we moved from CA.

    Have a great day.
    Pam

  19. Although the blossoms are beautiful, I really love the simple impact of that green field! And your Camelias are stunning! Lucky lady you are, to have them to bring inside from your yard!

    Happy Spring!
