Spring is coming...

On Sunday afternoon it was so beautiful I had to snap some photos of what is blooming in my yard.
 The Bradford Pears are doing their part to encourage Spring to make her entrance!
 Please excuse all the electrical lines, we live in an older neighborhood,
 so we still have them above ground! 

Of course, the camellias could not be out-done!

One my favorite early spring bloomers,  the Saucer Magnolia! 
Those pink and purple blooms just sing...Spring is coming!
Even our Carolina Jessamine has decided Spring is close by!
The Dogwoods are preparing for a beautiful show along with the Azaleas (my absolute favorite!).

 We have had lots of wind the last couple of days...March winds arrived a day or two early!  When it settles down, I am going to be taking some photos around town to show you how gorgeous things are looking here.

So, I know lots of you are still feeling the grips of Old Man Winter,
but I promise.... Spring is on her beautiful way!


  1. Oh I cannot wait for all the trees to bloom up here! Its just so glorious when everything starts blooming!

  2. Michelle, this was the perfect pick me up after just coming in from shoveling the snow off the sidewalks!

  3. Wow...you have all that blooming at your house? LUCKY!!!!!

  4. Good morning from Tokyo!

    What lovely pictures! I miss the dogwoods as they begin to peak...thankfully we have our cherry blossoms! A lovely day to you and yours...



  5. So beautiful and full of color. We do at least have buds forming on trees. This winter has just been too long!

  6. All of that in your yard? Wow! It must smell lovely, it sure looks lovely.

    Thank you for visiting my blog today! I'm a follower.

    I'm not really a southern gal because I've lived in the west since I was five. But I was born in North Carolina and have lots of relatives still there. And if I hang around them long enough I pick up my childhood accent. Does that count?

  7. Beautiful! Makes me miss my bradford pear tree.

  8. You have a lot of blooms in your yard too. Isn't spring grand?? Enjoy every minute. Carla

  9. Ahhh, don't you love it?! It looks just like that down here in our neck of the woods, too, and I couldn't be happier! xoxo

  10. I am bad and call bradford pears the stanky fish trees!

  11. Do you have a nook is it lendable?


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
