Uh, When Did Spring Get Here?

31 Mar

So, while I spent two weeks housebound with the flu, spring apparently arrived.  No email, no mailer, not even a Facebook event invite! It just snuck up on me!

So I grabbed a camera and took a stroll around the back yard.

Here are a few of my photos.

The pear tree is starting to bud

The apricot tree is blooming, too!

Now that is a very blue sky

When my sisters and I were little, Dad was in the Air Force, and we were stationed in England for a while.  When our television was waiting for input it would turn a deep medium blue. Daddy would point to that screen and say that the sky in Idaho was just that shade of blue in the summer time. We didn’t think it was possible.

When we got back to the states, though, we spent hours on our backs pointing to the sky saying, “It really IS that blue!”

It’s amazing what we remember from childhood.

I still have a cough, and get tired easily, but for the most part I think this flu has passed.  Now to get gung-ho about getting My Ignored Hamper And Other Bathroom Poetry onto the market. To the to-do list!!!  🙂

    I love it! That sounds just like something we would have done with our kids! Oh, yeah, we did it!

      Yup, you did. 🙂 I’m actually glad we have that trip coming up. Getting itchy for travel, and with no budget for Italy a road trip with the crew will help ease the twitching. lol

      Hi, Laura. They do look great. Last year the apricot tree bloomed too early and froze off in winter’s last sneak attack. I’m really looking forward to them this summer.
