A close-up of a weeping cherry tree in my daughter's
Bradford Pear trees outside my local K-Mart. These trees are in bloom all over our area now, along with flowering cherries and plums. Spring has sprung...
A branch of forsythia, reaching skyward. Is there any better harbinger of spring? Cutting a few small branches and bringing them in the house to bloom is a ritual here. Nothing brightens up a winter-weary home better than this!!
One of my three forsythia bushes. They reach peak bloom about 10 days apart, owing to their positions in the yard. This one was pruned severely last summer, so I am surprised that it has so many blooms on it now.
