Trees are in Bloom--It is Beautiful

Today is a glorious day!  The picture with the wind socks shows the trees just a few weeks ago but now the trees have their new bright green leaves on and the weeping cherry in our front yard is in beautiful bloom.  She is 3 years old and is growing like a.....well, like a cherry tree.  Her name is Laura, in honor of my husband's mother.  Even the plants devoured by the deer over the winter are back in bloom except for the camellia which didn't recover.  I hadn't gotten too attached to it anyway....just last year we planted it so it was not well established.  The hosta in the front pots are growing so fast that you can almost see the shoots grow.  The yard is looking good and today the temperature is to soar to 90 degrees.  Whew!  Then tomorrow it plummets to 60 and rain.  That's spring for you.  April showers bring May flowers.  I'm counting on it.
