Despite this winter being remarkably nice and tame, I’m excited spring is here. Small signs are popping up, quite literally, all around. Before planting rose bushes in the front bed, I had an assortment of bulbs and perennials. Each year, one rogue tulip shows up.
All of our fruit trees made it through the winter, too. It’s interesting how different trees and leaves look, even as buds. Tight clusters on the cherry trees.
Larger leaves on the pear trees.
The Italian plum trees are the slowest to leaf out. Look at the small flower-like bunches on our maple trees.
To me, this is the color of spring. Bright, fresh, and new; not the dark green of summer.
Bleeding hearts are starting to sprout buds, with bright green leaves.
I’m enjoying it while I can, because this fresh spring doesn’t last long. And, we won’t live at this house for another spring.
How is spring in your area? Already in full bloom? Just starting like it is here? What’s your favorite element of spring? Fresh flowers? Warmer weather? Fresh green leaves?
