I notice posts about spring and the hope of warmth ahead in the northern climes. Do you love spring? The flowers, blue sky and a breeze that's just beginning to feel warm on your face? Early blooming flowers and baby lambs and colts in the country fields? OK, maybe I'm getting a bit cheesy here but those are all things I see and feel in spring where we live.

So, what does spring bring to mind where YOU live? Are there special happenings in spring that make it extra special for you? In our area we have a lot of bulb farmers so since 1934 there's been a huge Daffodil Festival with a parade and lots of special events for a week in April. Problem this spring is our daffodils all bloomed a bit early! I hope they have a lot of them picked and stored in coolers. But this reflects my most loved part of spring...the flowers and their sweet fragrance. Have you ever smelled a daffodil? They're not a strong fragrance but they are lovely. The flower of spring are the loveliest, freshest and most welcome of the year.

What do you enjoy about spring where YOU live?

I live in a wooded area, and the understory of the woods is heavy with dogwood. I love when they bloom in the spring - clouds of white everywhere.

Right now I have ***** willow in my side yard. Most of the snow has melted but you can still see the deer tracks under my
apple trees. I can hear the robins but so far haven't seen them. The daffodils are just starting to pop up in my small garden
and the anticipation to see what my possessed easter lillies will do. about 10 years ago I planted a single white easter lily, now
it will change from a hot pink tiger with spots to pure white to white with green, then to a light pink and back to pink tiger.
There's no other flowers around it so I know it's not that, but for the last 3 years I've taken pictures of the different stages.

Spring here brings the beauty of blooming trees...Bradford Pear, many varieties of
Crape Myrtle, Dogwoods, the differant fruit trees and the Forsynthia bushes are
beautiful. I love Spring, it is a rebirth of glorius nature and it means I'll be out there
planting some of my favorite annuals soon!
Hugs, Robin
