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!

  1. I am so jealous – we still have snow on the ground (Ontario, Canada) and my crocuses and tulips are just coming up. Lovely pictures – thanks they inspire me to hold on a little longer. This makes me glad I joined Blogrush, I find such great kindred spirits now!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the comment. I have added a link to your blog in Best Reads on the Web section. I’ll be back often.
    P.S. I love your vegetable garden, I want to make mine bigger and raise the beds, timbers are looking good.

  3. I’m also jealous. We had one tantalizing, sunny, 70-plus-degree day this week; but mostly the weather on Long Island recently has been chilly and cloudy with a good bit of rain and wind. We do have daffodils now on the south shore and the flowering trees are just coming into bloom here, but it’s still too early to get vegetables in the ground.
