The First Blooms of Spring






Wherever you are that's not where I am, it's probably already lush, green and flowering, and I'm jealous of that place.  But here, it wasn't until this week that I started noticing the trees along our street sprouting fresh green shoots and blossoms.

I took my camera and went for a walk, but the sunny day had turned cloudy and terribly windy, so it was hard to get photos that weren't blurry since nothing would stay still long enough for me to take a clear photo.  I still love them, though.

It's supposed to rain the next few days and I'm hoping for a quiet weekend at home to work on some projects.  And if you're wondering what I'm up to lately...
