Signs of Spring Around Town

Today has been a beautiful sunny day, warm enough to open the porch windows,
and a good day to be out and about looking for signs of spring!

At a shopping center, I found clusters of daffodils

and some trees about to unfurl their leaves.

In front of a store, pretty plantings of daffodils and pansies,

with pussy willows reaching up to the sky.

And, in Trader Joe's, lovely bouquets of spring flowers for sale.

 As I drew near home on the way back, bordering a parking lot,

 these flowering trees were fairly bursting with blossoms!

Soon yards will be filled with flowers, but for now, 
I was happy to see signs of spring wherever I could find them!

Hope you've had a lovely day!!

Gorgeous blooms and so welcome after some really awful news out of Boston. Judy, I thought about you and how awful the scenes are. Just a tragedy.

Thanks for the florals to cheer us up:)

Gorgeous signs of spring, Judy.

And I'm so glad that you were safe during the scariness in Boston.
