Enjoying Springtime

On this glorious spring day let the beautiful colors begin!
 
The Andre Rieu tulips are the first to bloom.


These beauties are named in honor of the famous waltz-playing Dutch violinist.


Lilac Perfection does not disappoint with its nodding heads resembling that of peonies. 

 
The Star Magnolia is now in the spotlight,


followed by pink magnolia buds ready to unfurl.


Our Chanticleer Pear will soon be covered with a profusion of white flowers.  The branches look so pretty against the sunny blue sky.


I hope the flowers are blooming wherever you are.  I look forward to seeing what tomorrow will bring.
 
Today I am joining ...
