Spring!

The last few days here have been absolutely gorgeous! The temperatures have been in the middle to upper 70's and sunshine almost every day. I wish it could be this way all summer, but I know that eventually it will be really, really hot and humid and almost unbearable to go outside. So, I'm really enjoying this wonderful spring weather right now.

Yesterday afternoon I got into a picture taking mood. I went outside and took some pictures of my flowers and I wanted to share.

The first one is of one of my azalea bushes that are in full bloom right now.


The second picture is of the begonias I bought at a plant sale last week. I'm afraid to plant them right now because I'm afraid there might be just one more frost and I don't want them to be taken by the frost.


This last picture I have to say I'm very proud of because it's one of my hens and chicks plants and I've never seen one this big. At least I've never grown one this big before. It's so pretty and it's just flourishing.


Yesterday afternoon when I typed this, I had my windows open, the sun was shining and the birds were singing. I hope these pictures inspire you to work outside in your gardens and take some pictures of your own. I have spring fever right now and I wish the same for you because it feels really good!
