After a bleak winter I think we all are so happy to see the beauty of spring with the multitude of colors in the plants and the flowering of trees.
Some of the beauty that bursts forth in the spring:
- Pink dogwood
- Bradford pear trees
- Redbud tree
- Cherry tree
- Irises just beginning to open
I hope that all of us can take the time out of our busy schedules to notice — and appreciate — the beauty that surrounds us every day of the year.
