Spring Has REALLY Sprung!!

After many false starts, I think Spring is finally here! Here are some pictures I took around town. I am loving it!


















“Look around you: Winter is over; the winter rains are over, gone! Spring flowers are in blossom all over. The whole world’s a choir—and singing! Spring warblers are filling the forest with sweet arpeggios. Lilacs are exuberantly purple and perfumed, and cherry trees fragrant with blossoms.” 
Song Of Solomon 2

Looks like Spring has REALLY come to Virginia... We have some spring --but not many flowering trees yet... Our Daffodils and Tulips are so pretty now and the Winter Pansies are coming back to life after a long, hard winter.... Oh how I love spring.

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

Thanks for sharing these pretty blooms! I love those weeping trees toward the end of your post. I think they are weeping cherries. Wishing you a very nice weekend.

Spring has really sprung in your area. Not that colorful here. I love it when the flowers bloom and grass green waking from their winter sleep.
