In Bloom

Spring is in full bloom now. The redbud in the front yard is starting to fade, but it's still pretty.

The lilac at the farm down the road is hung with blooms and butterflies.

So is the azalea. This one almost died last year, but is bouncing back.

At the house, I lost several azaleas to last year's drought. The remaining azaleas have more blooms than I've seen for several years:

"And since to look at things in bloom. . . ."

Those are lovely. I love lilacs but haven't a lilac on the place. I'll have to remedy that some day.

Did you steal my pictures of the lilacs and the butterflies? I just took pictures of the exact same thing!

Wow, and what azaleas!
