SPRING HAS SPRUNG!!

I think spring has officially arrived in Maryland! Everything is so beautiful right now - the trees are all covered with beautiful flowers that are just starting to gently float in the breeze as the new leaf buds are emerging. The trees behind my house are just bursting with green, more and more everyday.




This is a beautiful tree in my yard - the same one that I have a picture of covered in snow just a few months ago. I should know what kind it is, but I don't - any guesses anyone? They are everywhere around here. Is it some kind of maple tree? I was sitting at my kitchen table eating lunch with Emily the other day and I noticed the tree through our window and thought it made a very interesting frame for it.

Wow,beautiful pictures. Is the tree a flowering pear tree? I don't really know what kind of trees you have up there, but they are sure pretty. I love Spring. Everything is so pretty and alive.

These pictures are beautiful and I a glad you are all warming up a bit. Well, of course I don't know anything about trees unless it's one of the million Oaks around here that I hate to rake up after or a tree in the middle of my living room in November and December.
