that blustery month that brings beautiful days, whispery warm breezes, sunshine and SNOW, gale force winds that blow the tops out of trees, beautiful blooms, and busy bees...
Already in the few short
days that April has been upon us,
we have had every kind of
I am out in the sunshine
picking flowers from our yard,
and the next day
I am watching the tree tops
blow across the field in front of our house...
our yard and gardens
are filled with the most beautiful
some bloom early, while others bloom late...
with over a dozen varieties,
they are always in a state
I've been posting
some of my photos on my

taken a few days ago at the
historic Lexington Arboretum and Cemetery
the Lexington Cemetery
is a spectacular showcase of
blooms in early Spring...
this is one of my favorite places
to visit in the Spring,
I could spend hours driving and walking
around taking photos of the trees
the blooms from the
Weeping Cherry trees
fall all the way to the water's edge
at the ponds there...
the beautiful colors
only last a few days though,
so I rush to get there right after the trees
begin to bloom..

the most sure sign of Spring--

Notes from me...
I was so in hopes that Spring was finally here! Have organized my shoes making my cutesy little sandals front and center, put away my winter coats,and then.... this morning I drove to work in an ALL out snowstorm!! My 30 minute commute took over an hour. Then-- about 3 hours later, the sun came out and melted off all of the snow. Geez!! I'm telling myself that this was the last little bit of winter blowing it's way out!
I'm taking a few weeks to create my next blog post -- I will be back then with a wonderful charitable opportunity for you all and... of course a giveaway to coincide with this amazing new way for you to share your love...
