Incontrovertible Evidence....


that Spring is here. The new wreath I hung on my porch today.

The Bradford pear beside my health club.

Our forsythia in full bloom.

The violets are for you, Rosemary!

The last daffodil to open.

My rosemary is blooming. It was too sunny for a good photo. The flowers are a most pleasing shade of lavender-blue.

The climbing rose is leafing out.

The hardwoods are budding. This photo was taken 2 weeks ago, and it looks all green now!

It's time to trim the ivy!

Beautiful pictures :)

My stupid new neighbor cut down the forsythia bush in their side yard that I watched bloom last year and replaced with some ugly bush. What did it ever do to them?!

As soon as I can get to the nursery, I'm buying one and putting it in my part of the side yard across from theirs. I wonder what they'll think of that? LOL

Wow! I can't believe you guys are getting all that already. We still have stick trees! But I do have Daffodils :)

Beautiful pictures. spring is about to bloom here in in Maryland. My daffodils are up and there is a green haze on the tips of the branches in the woods.

OH I SO LOVE THE SPRING!
I noticed the dogwoods and pears blooming here today too. I think my favorite is the Redbuds though, which aren't out just yet.
Visiting from Michele's.
If you don't already, you should do the Round Robin Photo Challenge. This weeks topic is proof of spring. You can find the link on my site on the left. Have a great weekend!

I am so glad that spring is finally here! :) Great pics Judy!

Wow, beautiful photo of the Bradford Pear. When we lived up in North Fla, we planted a bradford pear a few feet outside our daughter's bedroom window. Unnfortunately, we moved a year later and I've never been able to see it in full bloom.
This one is just beautiful.

Do they have a scent, btw? I always wondered.

I do believe that your Spring has Sprung! :)

Susan said...

Thanks! I needed that.

Joy Des Jardins said...

Well, I told you I'd come to see your spring flowers...Yep, they're gorgeous, just like I thought. I'd have to look long and hard for even a hint of a bud sticking out of all the snow we got. But you know what....I feel better just seeing your blossoms and greenery....at least SOMEBODY is having Spring. Thanks sweetie...

Oh, yay Spring. Very pretty. I esp. like the wreath.

Michele says Happy Spring!

I am so envious.........I know that's not a good thing to feel, but I can't help it!!

White is the new misery around here!!

I want my forsythia to bloom!!!! Unfortunately, it's surrounded and covered by that four letter word....SNOW.
