Spring... finally

While it's been spring-like temperatures for a couple of weeks now, it's only been in the last week that the vegetation has finally begun to spring to life. Seriously, through the end of April, most of the trees were still bare. Now pretty much everything has come to life and it's beautiful. I love the haze of green I see everywhere I drive.

Everyone always says they love the fall colors... and I include myself in that category... but I also love the spring colors! Green, obviously, but purples and pinks, too.

Our yard - in the forefront is some kind of white lilac type tree (I think) and it smells divine - and in the back are trees that flower with gorgeous white blossoms, before they eventually turn into just leaves.

NYCC campus - no idea what kind of tree it is, but it's beautiful and colorful.

Another tree on campus - again, no idea what it is - but I like it!

A view from my co-worker's office, overlooking our beautiful campus.

And we finally got around to planting the herbs we got from the wine tour. We planted them on the side of our house - in limited space. We're not sure how they're going to do, but hey - at least we tried!

I LOVE SPRING!!! And I'm so happy it's finally here!

I love spring too! New life. Its so fun. But we are already hitting summer! 90 degrees yesterday. I wish Spring lasted a little longer here. Oh well I guess one must sacrifice for mild winters.

This post makes me happy! I love all the pretty trees and it makes me laugh that you don't know the names cause I sure as heck don't either. I'm SO excited for Palmyra. We're going to Fayette for church- its still at 9:00 right? And I'm so glad its green! Yay! Excitement!!

Glad it's finally warming up for you. Love the trees. That's one of the reasons I love spring too - everything starts blooming.
