we are having here in the Northeast
this week have been unseasonably
warm, causing everything
to awaken from it's winter slumber
and burst into bloom overnight!
The red plum tree in front
of our home is scattering soft
pink petals like snowfall.
The azaelas are showing off,
in a competition with the rhododendren
for my attention!
Everywhere I turn there
is an explosion of color and fragrance.
The Saucer Magnolia in the back
yard quite literally opened up
It's blossoms are beautiful and
cover the entire tree.
Most years it blesses us with
two or three shows of blossoms
throughout the summer
but none as precious as the first.
Even our woodland dogwoods
are trying to get in on the act.
First Prize for the showiest
display has to go to the
Bradford Pears trees,
simply because their sheer numbers,
as they line the streets of our
take my breath away!
Hope you enjoyed our little stroll outside my house,
now lace up your shoes and go see what's waiting
for you outside your door own front door!!!
