Spring

Friday

Saturday

This is the apricot tree in my backyard. Friday there were only swollen buds. Saturday afternoon, there were six open blossoms. Spring is coming.

Snow for us today. I've got pictures on my blog. We had tornados Friday, snow today, and by the end of this week it's going to be 72 degrees.

Thanks for showing me something I've never seen before -- an apricot budding. Very cool.

We won't see the blossoms on our cherry tree for two more months. Thanks for the preview.

If I could have a dress the color of apricot blossoms I think I would wear it every day. And I especially love when the ground is covered with those precious petals.
