Lilacs for Spring

YEA!!!! My lilac bush is blooming. We're having an early and warm spring following a mild winter. Yesterday the temps were around 80 so this produced the most wonderful aroma of lilacs in my yard.
This weekend, I plan to cut a few of these for the house. Unfortunately my cats (two in particular) like these flowers as well. (They like some more than others - don't know why). So I will have to get creative about where I place these arrangements.
Gus and Smudge 
Look at these sweet faces just lounging in the sun. It's hard to believe they would completely destroy my flower arranging in a matter of seconds.

Have a beautiful weekend.

Sunset and Cherry Blossoms

This was my view as I walked out my front door the other evening. Cherry, tulip and redbud trees are in full bloom now.  

I love this time of year.

Afternoon Naps, Afternoon Light

I've come to appreciate both. ;) Have a great week.

I have really been enjoying tulips this year. Sometimes I bring home several bunches at a time. :)! I love them at all stages including when they are opening up, like in this photo.

Enjoy your week.

Anticipating Spring

For me, spring begins March 1. There could be six inches of snow on the ground and I would still declare that winter was over. Fortunately for me - and everyone around me - today has been a beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the 70s. Happy, happy me.

My tulip tree is beginning to bloom. The daffodils are blooming. Forsythia is beginning to bloom. These are the first signs of spring in my little corner of the world.

And my perennials are already coming up as well.

Inside, there is a lot of napping in the sunlight. None of it done by me, of course. ;)!

 Enjoy your day.
