Lovely spring

Thursday, March 24, 2011

We have had one of the loveliest springs that I've ever seen. I guess it's because we had a consistent stretch of consistent cold and then a gradual warming up, rather than the cold/hot/cold that we've had in other years.

The fragrance coming from the orange blossoms has been off the charts. I wish that this picture could be scratch and sniff so that you could smell the flowers firsthand!

All of the flowering trees and shrubs are blooming their hearts out. I just adore this Chionanthus virginicus outside my husband's office.

And now the herbaceous plants are revving up to bloom. Here's one of the soap aloes that we planted last spring along the street.

For those of you living farther north, hang in there -- hopefully spring won't be too far off!
