Things are Blooming Around Here



Let me just start off by saying these pictures DO NOT do these pretty blooms justice....the morning was beautiful and I just walked around my neighborhood and snapped a few pictures...Here is a pretty plum tree by my patio.



I love this tree...it looks like an umbrella :)



These PJM rhodedendrons are in full bloom...you have to enjoy them quick because the blooms are gone in a week.



And how 'bout this Bradford Pear??? Isn't it perfect???



It just isn't spring without Daffodils.



This is a road near my neighborhood and I love these daffodils that line the woods along the edge of the grass. They come up every spring and are such a pretty thing.



And aren't these tulips the greatest shade of salmon?? These blooms only last just a few weeks........get out for a walk and enjoy them now!

Oh, so pretty! I love the umbrella looking tree. Does it smell as pretty as it looks?

So pretty! And your grass... so green already! Ours is slowly changing, is a nice mix of brown and green and still crunches beneath your feet. Flowers? What flowers? We've got some buds though ☺! So until mine come up, I'll just envy yours a bit!

Weird observation...my Bradford Pear blossoms smell disgusting! I was weeding and thought I smelled cat pee or something horrible and finally discovered it was my pear tree! Smell yours and see if I"m crazy :)
