Spring Pictures

I remembered to take pictures! Lame pictures, but pictures all the same. Whoo hoo!

Yep, spring has finally arrived on our street. The blossoming pear trees are in blossom. We don't have any in front of our house (we like to park in front of our house and I've seen what a tree can do to a car!), but many of the neighbors planted them. I love driving down our street when the trees look like this. Unfortunately, it never lasts long. At least, it never seems to. A storm usually comes through shortly after they bloom and blows all the petals away.


It was only a couple of weeks ago this street was covered in snow! Nice that it didn't take that long for the grass to green up.



Anyway, hope you enjoy the pictures. Maybe they'll cheer me up, too. It stinks when you think you have a project ready to query and then find out it still needs works. Ah, but what can you do but go back and fix it. Still stinks, though.

Have a great weekend!

Wow! Spring really made up for lost time. It looks beautiful. Hope it continues to warm up.

Maria - Yeah, that warm weather we enjoyed this week is on vacation for the next few days. High won't even reach 50 today (and it's windy & rainy). We'll see if those petals are still on the tree by the end of the day!

Time to put on the walking shoes and enjoy the sunshine.

Ah, sunshine. Where art thou today? Oh yes, behind the clouds!

Great photos! We had some of that earlier this week but then it snowed here this morning! It is currently -2C (which Google tells me is 28F). Hope you are having a great weekend! :)

We have a flowering cherry in our front yard. So I absolutely understand where you're coming from.

Jen B - Woke up to some snow on the ground Saturday morning; 28 degrees this morning. I'm right there with ya!

Michael - Cherry trees are pretty, too. Dogwoods are my favorite, though, but won't grow well here, dang it (we tried).

How beautiful.
I'm with you, its not fun when you're ready to send out before the project is...sigh.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Sandra - It is a bummer, that's for sure. But it's better I find out NOW before I wasted all my opportunities! :)
