Here's Bart having his Molly Ringwald moment.
Hard to believe that there were any petals left in the trees.
The lilacs are going to be at their peak this week - well ahead of the festival.
This is a Cercis canadensis 'Alba'. I'd never seen it in bloom. But of course now I want one and am trying to figure out if I have an area that is sheltered enough for it.
The tulips were looking just lovely.
Nothing better than spring green.
Taking a little break.
Everyone taking photos of everyone else.
I love 'Orange Queen' tulips. Will definitely have to find some for next year. I could have a real Creamsicle theme going on if I combine them with the White Redbud. (do you still call it a redbud if its white?)
And then a quick run over to our favourite trail. Looks like there was some wind damage.
Simply wonderful to see everything come back to life.
A very big North American aquatic rodent - the muskrat.
Aside from the muskrat, we saw all kinds of birds that we'd never seen before. How I long for another camera with a great big long lens....... However, Kevin would have never been able to drag me out and home. There were just too many photo opportunities.
