Spring is my favorite season. It holds all the promise of life. It’s getting warmer, blossoms are abundant, and it’s time to get serious about the garden. Here are some other reasons I love this time of year.

This Bradford pear tree is the most beautiful it’s ever been. It’s the first tree to bloom at my house each spring.

From the underside this view shows a dogwood and rhododendrons waiting to bloom.

The daffodils had been trying to bloom for several weeks, but cold temperatures kept them closed. Now they are in full bloom.

The forsythia in front of my neighbor’s house is much showier than mine. These plants came from shoots from my plants. I cut mine back so much there was little bloom this year.

Periwinkle blooms all over. It seems to go where it wants.

More blooms to follow in the next post!
