Signs Of Spring

I think those are some kind of cherry blossoms in bloom! Early blooms are popping out all over the place, not that the winter is long here but it feels so nice to see them. As someone who spent her whole life in the Mid-West (besides five winters in Maine) I am still so surprised and excited when I see daffodils blooming in early February (not to mention beautiful camellias, which look too exotic too be allowed this time of year). I probably annoy the hell out of everyone because I'm constantly exclaiming about the flowers, but I can't help it!

  1. I couldn't agree more! I'm also from the Midwest, so the winters out here just astound me. A simple walk to the grocery store these days involves at least a dozen quick stops to admire the little blossoms in my neighborhood. :)

    1. Funnily enough I think both these picture were taken on the way to the grocery store:) I always have to keep my camera with me because you never know what will be blooming!
