Spring Has Sprung **UPDATED**

Since our almost 5 inches of rain last week, everything is GREEN! It may have something to do with the 70-80 degree temps too! It's been so pretty. Thought I would share a few pics of the tree in my front yard. Hopefully Spring will visit you very soon as well!








Hope everyone has an AWESOME Saturday!

I just can't leave you with an awesome Saturday wish. I want to send you a box of Spring! That's right, I feel bad that I am enjoying such beautiful weather so I want to give away a box of Spring fun! To enter, just leave me a comment. I will include those of you that commented prior to the update unless you don't want me to. Then you can tell me otherwise. The deadline to comment will be Tuesday 03/24/09 at 9:00 pm.

Good Luck!

I can almost smell those flowers! Ahhh, thank you for reminding me spring will be here soon. Currently it is snowing and we have several inches of snow that has accumulated.
I love that second pic of the bee flying!
Great bokeh too!

I have spring envy! It was warm the first couple of days this week, but right now it's a brisk 40 degrees outside again. Argh!

Mine are almost to that point! I can smell it in the air - we got just a little bit of rain last night and so much green this morning!

Wow, it's already blooming there? Beautiful shots! We're not quite there yet here...hopefully very soon! (Then again, we aren't having 70 degree temps, either!)

Oooh - I'm so jealous! It's gorgeous!

Tatersmama said...

Oh how gorgeous! I especially like the one with the bee too!
We're winding down from summer here, but yesterday was another hot day and I have to tell you that I will be so glad to see some good rain and some greenery around here for a change!

Broken Y said...

I can only imagine what the spring fun will be!

Shirley said...

Just beautiful! We're singing off the same song sheet, you and I. Spring has sprung here and I just stopped today to take a picture of the MOST incredible tree in full blossom. I'll have to post it to show you the color. Hope it does it justice. I don't come close to being the photographer you are. And you're perfect in front of or behind the lens! Personally, I think that's wrong but I won't say so.

Don't you just love Redbuds and they are the state tree of Oklahoma! Our redbuds look just like yours and our Dogwoods are getting ready to bloom soon! It is so exciting!

Oh you're so lucky! It's Autumn over here! Instead of everything coming out of hiding, over here everything is starting to shrivel!

Heather said...

OH I'll take a box of spring! Glad you're getting back to blogging, I can't say the same for me!

Sure wish I was sitting under that tree smelling those fragrant flowers! It's still kind of brown and crusty here.

Would that tree be a Redbud? Or is is more shrub like?

carrielt said...

I wish spring would hurry and bring lots of April showers!
