Spring has sprung here. Not only are we having delightfully warm days, but everything is budding out and blooming. We were out working in the yard again yesterday, and I thought I’d share the proof that spring is here in Illinois.
Here is our pear tree, in full bloom.
This is our neighbor’s magnolia, but we see it right outside our bedroom window.
My ajuga is blooming (you might need to click on this to open it as the contrast between the blossoms and the foliage didn’t photograph too well).
This bush is getting close to blooming. I wish I knew what it is … but it was planted when we moved in.
Here’s a picture from Spring 2010 … if anyone can identify this bush, I’d appreciate it.
And my hostas are coming up.
I just love spring … the warmer temperatures, windows and doors open, birds chirping, plants coming back to life.
