Signs of Spring

Up here in the stateline, the weather has been a little on again/off again. Last week the temperature topped out at 79° F. This week it’s been in the 40s. As the saying goes,

If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.

At least it’s spring!

I am obsessed right now with the flowering trees and bushes blooming all over the landscape. I love the burst of color, so welcoming after a cold and dreary winter. From a distance, they look nice enough but slightly monotone. This lovely tree lined driveway is an entrance to a credit union in the area.

The closer you get, though, the more you can see subtle shades of pink at play.

And fuchsia, splashed against the dark green leaves.

Crabapple blossoms, birds singing in the morning, sunshine when I go to work AND when I head home, these are some my favorite signs of spring.

What are some of yours?
