In less than a week

Spring has arrived!

I took a quick walk up to the mailbox loved what I saw:

The willow getting ready for leaves.

Look at these little buds that give my favorite tree it's red haze.

Favorite maple tree.

Not sure what kind of tree this one is from, but isn't it pretty?

The rhubarb.

Strawberry plant.

And of course the weeds are back as well.

Amazing the changes that happened so fast.

Isn't it incredible? One day all wet and gray and depressing then suddenly all the trees are blooming. Visually this is my favorite time of year, love seeing all my bulbs come up etc... I love fall the most climate-wise, but spring is soooo pretty!

I just can't believe how fast the buds on the trees are opening up! I love this time of year.

I showed your pictues to a fellow who is from WI and now lives in AK, he said the I don't know picture is either a dogwood or viburum. It was nice to see the green, there is still 4 feet of snow in my yard, but that ok we have been enjoying riding the snow machines. Pam

Yep, I have green too, but it looks like I have lots of weeds to pull.
