Spring in color

Not that we have much of a winter to begin with, but we pretty much had no rainy/cloudy season this year. So I have been lucky enough to enjoy even more sunny walks than usual, and now they are filled with the bright colors of spring.

Even some of my plants, which have received no attention whatsoever for months, are starting to revive.

I really need more recipes involving chives.

Trees are flowering, of course (achoo!), and I’ve seen a few tulips and daffodils that remind me of spring in the Midwest.

These were minis. So sweet!

I don’t know what the heck this thing is, but it’s seriously out of control.

I feel like our next-door neighbors’ statue is really enjoying the weather.

I really need to learn more about flowers and trees while I’m here. There are so many brilliantly colored and patterned options for landscaping.

Also on my love list this week: oranges. Some of the best I’ve ever had, and they were only 39 cents a pound!
