Okay, I'll give everyone a break from the snowy skiing posts and show you what spring is currently like in my neck of the woods.
My hubby planted several dozen tulips in our front yard. Sadly, none of them came up.....seems the soil in the flower bed is not good. It's too full of clay and doesn't drain, so all of the bulbs he planted last fall rotted in place (heavy sigh....)
Luckily, he thought to plant some tulips in the backyard flower bed, and they've been doing quite nicely. So I have a few tulips to photograph!
While driving home a week ago, I noticed a pink dogwood tree in bloom on a neighboring street. The setting sun was lighting it up so nicely, I vowed to return and catch it the following evening.
Not only did a capture those gorgeous pink blossoms, I also found a lovely two-color tulip nicely backlit by the setting sun.
Is there anything prettier than pink dogwood blossoms? I don't think so.
Around here, spring is one continuous spectacle of color. First, we had the daffodils, then the tulips and cherry trees, and now it's the dogwood's turn.
Although I'm sad that ski season is nearing the end, I love the longer daylight hours, and enjoy the procession of colorful flowers unfurling throughout the spring months.
Stay tuned - in another couple weeks, I'll update you again on "what's blooming now!"
