Signs of Spring Near Atlanta

After the rains yesterday, I was afraid all of the blossoms would fall to the ground and I would have been a day late and a dollar short again.  However, I was very pleased that the rain did not take the flowers from the Bradford Pear trees.  We live another day to enjoy God’s beauty abound.

The Bradford's are always the first to strut their stuff.  Sassy little trees they are!

Then…presto…the cherry trees begin to sachet their color.  On the property of my old house, I planted two cherry trees in glorious pink.  One was stuck by lightening (happens to us in every house we live in) but the other, I am sure, is thriving and revealing its beauty.

Yes, the sky was actually this brilliant blue today.  The air is so clear and clean that I wish I could bottle it up and sent it to Asthma Girl when the air in the North West gets funky.

This last photo reminded me of Mental Pause Momma today.  I wished she would find contentment when viewing this work of Nature and be somewhat nurtured by it on this day of her own Mom’s birthday.

Kate was right, I did find pleasure in my photos today.

Deb, what lovely photos for the GA Blooms.,....totally am with you on this new sign of spring arriving! I saw lilac buds on my lilac tree this morning and am praying we don't have any frigid temperatures to cause it not to bloom fully. It's a Hybrid Purple.....totally gorgeous and smells divine! ;) ~CC Catherine
