In the past week I’ve also seen lilacs, violets, crocuses, daffodils, tulips, pear trees, apple trees, and dandelions in bloom.

What is blooming in your part of the world?

    The serviceberries, tulips and daffodils are just on their way out and the pear, Judd viburnum and redbud are at their peak. The lilacs are just starting to open. And you are right, the dandelions are forever flourishing. It’s been rainy here and that certain light makes the redbud out my kitchen window look almost fluorescent purple.
