We are one sunny day away from green here! The lilac and honeysuckle buds are starting to expand... I even found a wild tulip (not so wild, I planted it) with a pink flower. Such a rebel, out there all by itself.
I have a feeling this is going to be one of those amazing springs, where everything just pops at once- forsythia rubbing shoulders with the flowering quince, dogwood and redbud trying to outbloom each other (they're such drama queens!) and the royal magnolias lording it up.
I'd go outside and take some photos of all the wonderful spring blossoms, but 1. it's cold and dreary 2. I can't find any.
So without further ado, please enjoy last year's spring:
It turns out I can't find last year's spring either- but the May flowers were quite pretty! I'm hopeful spring returns from her break soon...
