Happy Spring!

A collage of blooming apple trees (and visiting bees) in my neighborhood.

Here's a collage of blooming apple trees (and visiting bees) in my neighborhood. (I originally designed this as a card, but I'm recycling it here.) If only I could insert the fragrance. (Blog-aroma!) It's intoxicating!

Spring officially arrived more than a month ago, but we’re just now getting lovely weather. (We did have one nice day here and there before.) The petals are already falling from the apple trees, but I’m looking forward to a succession of cheerful blooms.   Magnolia, lilac, peonies, iris, lilies…..

Moxey of Middleground explains how spring fever affects many of us in Sometimes My Train of Thought Gets Totally Derailed.  Paula of Locks Park Farm across the pond is side-tracked by the gorgeous spring weather in Devon.  Check out the photos of her adorable new puppy, which she carries in a backpack in Playing Truant.

  1. What a stunning collage. Our apple trees are just budding, I should think they’ll be out in bloom by next week.
    And bless you Cathy for the link!

    I’m looking forward to seeing all of your gorgeous photos of spring as it unfolds, and the rest of the seasons, too. Cathy

  2. Those pictures are snapolious (the state of being in snap goodness).
    Spring is here all I can say is thank god.

    I’m snap grateful! Thanks, Cathy.

  3. I’m jealous! Spring arrived here early last week and then it snowed and snowed and left six inches on the ground. Now it’s a muddy, snowy, mess outside and I’m hoping for more sun soon. Soak it in!

    I’m so happy with the weather I’m delirious. Some idiots are turning on their air conditioners! My aunt wrote that some of our relatives in the Black Hills of South Dakota have lost their spring calves because they froze to death. It’s been so cold there and have had lots of spring blizzards. I am soaking it in! When people in Sydney were complaining about the heat there, I said I’m storing it up for later….Cathy

  4. Thank you oh so much for the lovely photo..and as usual you are a breath of fresh air! We are just starting to get a hint of blossoms..it’s been a long winter.

  5. As Greg put it so well, “snapolicious”! Your collage reminds me of a beautiful quilt, made by Mother Nature.
