" A Spring In My Walk"

I walk outside to fresh air and sunshine.......................
I look around, what do I find....
The bushes and trees shouting , come look at me...........
I'm suddenly amazed at all that I see...



There's Lorapedlum decked out in shades of hot pink..

And look at the Cyprus sprouting green leaves..

Leaves of dark crimson on the Roses appear..

The purple Wisteria sighs, I'm finally here....

Then the Redbud and Empress Trees shout
look up at me................
Are we not two beauties, in our Spring finery.

Gorgeous! Doesn't Spring just put you in a cheery state of mind and make you feel like you have such energy?

Your spring down there is way ahead of ours, Carol. Can't wait for those cheery colors!

Dave King said...

Way ahead of our spring, too - b ut encouraging, none the less for that!

Kaye Barley said...

You are so far ahead of us, you lucky woman. Things there are just beautiful!! If you'll keep sharing these pretty pictures of yours, that would be lovely, thanks!

Spring is just beginning to turn around our corner, and this was like looking through a periscope over the wall and seeing the pretty dress she is wearing ahead of time.

OOOOH, so pretty, Carol! I have lots of things blooming here, forsythia, a shrub with pale pink flowers that I can't identify, jonquils, roses are getting tiny leaves, the irises are way up, etc. I took pictures as well, but my Reader refuses to upload them to the pc. Bummer! I'm going to town tomorrow and buy me a new reader! Now I'm going for a walk in the woods and see if any wildflowers are up yet.

I enjoyed your beautiful pictures. Happy Spring!

Hugs,

Renie

Carol, the Bradford Pears are in bloom here, as are the Tulip trees. I drove up to Huntsville this weekend and enjoyed seeing all the signs of spring along the way.

Spring...what a delight !
78 degrees here today, we have gone from snow last weekend, to this...
The pictures are beautiful, so encouraging to get out there, and dig in the warm soil..

Hey Carol...slowly making my way back to the blog world.
Really enjoyed your spring photos. I just noticed yesterday that things are also beginning to bloom here on the island. My Bradford Pear has some new buds coming up.
