It's Happening



The trees have buds that are actually blooming.  



Our own fruit trees have tiny buds, but have not bloomed out yet, like this beauty. 



This was a scene I passed up, but then went home and got my camera.  




Blue skies, budding trees, and green grass really refresh the body and soul.

  9. We were commenting today that all the rain has made the grass a little green! And today in the 50's it really did have a feel of spring!

  14. Yeah for spring, Michelle. We had a beautiful weekend; lots of snow melts when temps get up to 50*.
    The last picture is my favorite. I like the contrast between new tree life and an old barn.

  16. It's warming up finally and the huge snow piles are receding, slowly soaking into the ground, nurturing it. Soon enough, by golly, we will have green grass too. In the meantime I will enjoy your scenery.

  28. The trees are starting to get buds on them, but they sure haven't opened yet. I'm raking like crazy so the yard will take full advantage of the next big rain!
    Come on SPRING!!!!
