Hi there! It's overcast today and we are supposed to have wind and thunderstorms later. Not wanting this beauty that surrounds me to be diminished by the storm I took the camera and walked around the property clicking at random to preserve the glory of Spring. In my last blog post I tried to capture the beginnings of Spring (Chapter 1) that we thought would never get here! I like to think this is Chapter 2. There's more to come before we sink into the colors of Summer, annuals and perennials. By that time the awakening of Spring will be long gone, replaced by beautiful shades of green.
I think that most of you will recognize Japanese Cherry and Maples, Pink and Yellow Dogwoods, strawberry plants, Quince, Snowballs, Crepe Myrtle, tulips, violets that are covering the lawn right now and Johnny Jump-ups. I'll let the photos do the talking...

Spring seems to affect us in a powerful way; our moods, our soul and how we approach each new day. It gives us a new purpose to our days and brings us full circle to a sense of renewal in our daily lives. Spring makes me happy!
