Spring has Sprung!

This is one of my favorite times of the year. The breathtaking beauty of God's creation is in abundance. My own yard is bursting with color.

My crabapple tree in the side yard...

A closer view of the blossoms on the crabapple.

Blossoms off of my japanese cherry tree in the front yard...

My favorite tree, it's an old-fashioned magnolia tulip tree...

Get outside and encounter the glory of God!

It is feel very funny after read your self-introduction. Yep, nobody can, esp for me a Chinese boy (hehe,,,not a man). The flower pictures you posted are really beautiful and that Japanese flower also can be found in my hometown. The name of this flower should be SAKULA in Japanese language.

Hey, those sakula look very familiar! :)

Oh, look at all the shades of PINK! I love it! I'm glad to see that spring has sprung up north...summer is upon us here in Florida. My a/c is running non-stop ($$$$).

Oh, I'm envious-no color in my yard yet!

Excuse me while I sit here and fume in my jealousy. I will make a list:

Numero Uno (that's two comments with a little culture for ya) - I have no blooming trees (not to be confused with bloomin') in my yard. Well, except for the one Dogwood that puts out aprox. three blooms each year. Pathetic.

#2 - You have a wonderful FLAT yard, and it looks and sounds pretty big.

And C - Your grass looks cut and I don't see the first Dandelion.

Some chicks are just lucky.

It's going to take some time and effort to get our house and yard up to snuff. But there's not a bloomin' thing I can do about living on the side of a mountain, and not having good soil for gorgeous trees. WAH WAH WAH!

Fume over.

Stacie Dear, I hope that your week is DEE-liteful!
