Spring has sprung

Lilac Buds

The trees and bushes continue to bud, the tulips are peaking through the ground and the killdeer have arrived — the surest sign of spring and my favorite sign of them all.  There is a pair of hawks that have been performing their mating ritual, circling each other, spiraling higher and higher into the sky.  The days are getting longer and warmer, with the sun setting later and later every day.  It’s been a long winter, but spring is here.

  1. I know. I have been getting “Spring Fever”. I looked out yesterday, and I have a young magnolia tree that has it’s first bloom on it. No leaves and just one bloom. My bubs are coming up and my Japanese Maple Trees have beautiful pink flowers on them.
