Spring is totally my favorite season. Not just because it is my birthday season (thank you everyone for my happy birthday wishes, by the way), but mostly because of blooms and buds exploding day after day around me. Daffodils, hyacinths, forsythia, cherry and plum trees - they are so fresh and graphic and make me so very happy.
I pulled together an arrangement of pussy willow branches confiscated from my parents (thanks Mom & Dad), and pear tree branches and forsythia from my own backyard. The forsythia was still in bud form when I snipped it, but the blooms exploded the next day - such a bright burst of yellow.
Walking around downtown Fredericksburg this past weekend didn't disappoint - the weather was warm enough to mosey around and the cherry trees were in full bloom all along the streets.
What are your favorite signs of spring?
