More Spring – Wednesday March 25, 2009

The weather is abso-stinkin-lutely (to quote my friend Crysta) gorgeous right now. The azaleas and dogwoods and wysteria are at their peak. And I have to send back the rental lens today so I went out yesterday to catch a little more spring with it. I’m sure Sonya was wondering what I was doing when I passed her twice in about 5 minutes. Last evening after work I headed out and found a dogwood tree with the Perfect blooms on it near Ken & Carmel’s house. And then I stopped in to say “howdy” and ended up taking some squash plants off of her hands. So I ran some over to my parents. And then dropped off some extras at Eric & Linda’s house and chatted with Eric and Micah for a bit. Then stopped by the church to sign up for bake sale items. Then on home at 7:45. Not bad for someone who had intended to be home all evening.

This place in town has a yard that is about half a city block. They always have the most lovely yard in the spring.

I thought I wasn’t going to get any tulip tree blooms this year (again) and then I discovered that my parents have a tree in their yard so I got them afterall!

Love the new green growth that is visible all around. I was amazed at how much greener it is here than in SC last weekend. There was almost a line somewhere around Wrens, GA where the growth difference was apparent.

Pretty little weeds near the lake

Flowers in the swamp at the lake. Don’t worry. There probably aren’t (m)any gators here.

And yes, I’ve done a few of these. No more spring pics ’till I get good and going with the wedding pics. Check my portrait blog in a few days and I will have some up for you to see.

  5. Im am realizing on this trip to Canada that Im going to greatly miss the spring weather there in good ol’ Georgia. The spring weather here in canada this week consisted of snow and ice and cold cold winds….:( Fun Fun..Were`planning on moving the third weekend in april so some of us young ladies should get together and go out for lunch or supper so i can see everyone before I leave..
