It's the most wonderful time of the year!

That title may make you think of Christmas, but I happen to think that Spring is the most wonderful time.  After a long winter, simply seeing the sun and feeling warm temperatures is wonderful.  God is so generous though, and he throws in all kinds of beauty along with the change in weather!  I love walking outside or driving the country roads, marveling at the beauty around us.
Here's a little bit of what I'm seeing.

 The pine trees are showing new growth.



Our hosta grows several inches every day!


 There are pretty little grape hyacinth blooming.



Our dwarf lilac is getting buds on it.



 One of my favorite things is the Dogwood tree.  They flower before most of the other trees have leaves, and are often seen at the edge of a wooded area.



Here's another one.  Aren't they pretty?

Hope you are enjoying Spring as much as I am!

Dear Mari! How beautiful spring is! And you captured these exquisite blooms in all their glory...
Spring truly is one of the most delightful times of the year!
I am back home after almost a month away and oh! My heart wants to sing for joy at the beauty all around me! Living in the country...nothing can compare!
Blessings to you and have a lovely day!

It is a beautiful time of year, and it is so nice to see everything change from brown to green, and the added color from flowers is icing on the cake. Your pictures tell the story exactly.

How I LOVE Soring!! It's so beautiful here in PA too. We are having a few Summer days this week.... Temps in the 80's!

It seems we know a few mutual people in blog land, so I thoight I would stop by. It is turning to spring here too in SE Wisconsin...finally! Our lilacs look like they are about to burst. I love that you see dogwood along the wooded areas, one of my favorite sites as we head south. I had hostas coming up, but the deer saw them as a fresh salad bar again! Oh well, it is beautiful!

I love how you know the names of errythang Mari. Also your dogwoods! Wow! Our fluffy white and pink blossoms are a distant memory, having gone to leaf weeks ago. I'm glad you've got your sunshine and warmth back. I know you'll enjoy all the delights. xoxo

I thoroughly agree with you on spring being the most wonderful time of year. They should make a song, "We wish you a cheery warm spring, we wish you a cheery warm spring, we wish you a cheery warm spring, and a happy summer!" But, come to think of it, the happy songs are badly *needed* here in the north in the winter--so I guess there's a good reason to keep them there.

Love your blue hyacinths, and the dogwoods are pretty!

the pollen is kicking my butt, so its hard for me to have a positive outlook!

Amber said...

I agree with you! Spring is definitely the best time of the year!

I love dogwoods! They're a favorite down south, and I just loved it when they'd all be in bloom. Your yard is always so pretty, and your photos are amazing!
