Spring has Sprung!

We've been having some wacky spring weather here in the Mid-Atlantic...it was like 87 degrees here yesterday!! That is not spring weather to me, but I guess it's better than snow, rain or cold temps. Anyways, I love how everything is in bloom now! I love taking the puppy dog for a walk and looking at all the nice green grass and flowers. 

We are still getting started on our gardening for the year and unfortunately, I was so busy this fall (you know, with getting married), that I didn't get a chance to plant any bulbs. So I'm very envious of everyone's daffodils and tulips coming up. This fall, I will be planting TONS of bulbs all over our yard!

One thing we do have that is in full bloom is our apple blossom tree. It's a super huge tree right in our front yard (it basically takes up our entire front yard!) and it started budding last week.
 Well now the flowers are opened and it's so pretty!  I wish it would stay in bloom all spring and summer, but sadly, it has a pretty short blooming time - the flowers will start falling off pretty soon. And we are supposed to get a super heavy rain tonight, so that may make it even
 shorter. So I guess we should enjoy it while it lasts! I took a few pictures of it this morning after my walk with Spencer.
The view out of the window from our bedroom - looking through the screen, sorry it's sort of blurry!
LOVE the pink flowers!

That tree is so pretty! I love walking the dog and seeing everything turning green. I love every part of spring, I can't pick just one!

That tree is beautiful!! I wish I had one in my front yard! I too am jealous of all the people that have the happy, yellow daffodils and the pretty tulips sprouting up in their yard. I am definitely going to be one of those people next year! :)
