Where Flowers Bloom

I can always tell that spring is going to arrive when I see the pink blossom trees ready to come alive.  They are all around my town - up and down the streets, in the parks, and even in the neighborhoods.  They are so pretty, and I love seeing them as I drive by.

Sheri, The flowering trees is what my mom liked best about Spring. She always said, "oh I want a tree like that !" when she would see them blooming. She had lots of lilacs, big as trees. She had a red bud, her favorite. Apple trees too. So whenever I see the beauty of flowering trees, it makes me think of mommy. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Dear Sheri: I absolutely love your photos. They are making me look forward to Spring even more than I already do. FYI- the flowers that you saw on my blog are from my last year's garden. Have a great day!

Beautiful blossom photos. I love spring,it's my favourite season. It's still a little too early for blossom where I live, maybe next week if the rain stops and we have some sun. I've just cut a branch from one of my Japonica shrubs, to force into bloom indoors. I would love to drink my B/fast tea from such a pretty cup.

You mean, it's spring already by you?????? It's so hard for me to fathom that! We are freezing out here with wild winds and more snow my friend..therefore, your share today is SO PERFECT for me because we here need to be reminded that spring is REAL! Love those pink blossoms. Anita

Oh how pretty those pink bloom trees are!!! They are called a red bud tree in Ohio though they have no red! Go figure! Spring is here for you....we have a few more weeks yet~~~Blessings~~~Roxie

Lucy martin said...

Spring is not even close here...it feels like it will never come...but yes I know it will. It has been a very fierce winter to be sure.

Mary Timmers said...

WHAT? You have spring there already? It's still the DEAD of winter here with below zero temps. If I didn't like you so much, I could hate you! Keep those pics coming, because they do give me hope.

Love,
Mary

Oh Sheri~
You live in such a heavenly region of the country. Such beautiful light pink blossoms, I just imagine that they have the sweetest scent too. Aren't we so fortunate to embrace the out-of-doors and nature so very much. All of this makes me so happy.
Love,
Jemma

Stephanie said...
