Spring Arriving

The small park near my house is a consistent joy in my life. It’s where I jog and people-watch. Sometimes I drive over with a picnic blanket and read next to the fountain with the ducks. There’s a thicket of trees in the back corner that has always been sort of magical to me – one year I took pictures of them at the peak of all four seasons. (Note to self: do something with those pictures.)

For about a week in spring, all the cherry trees in the park bloom at once. It’s an incredible sight. On my way to a party on Saturday, I stopped to take some photos!

I love the carpet of fallen petals almost as much as the blossoms on the trees!

When I opened the blinds Monday morning, this little cottontail rabbit was eating fallen seed from my bird feeder! I had a wonderful pet rabbit for eight years, and therefore get VERY excited about them. This one hung out for about fifteen minutes before suddenly spooking and hopping away. I hope to see him again!

My daffodils took a while to emerge, but they were worth the wait.

And of course, the squirrels are always around!

  1. Those blossoms are so beautiful! We don’t see such an obvious change of the seasons around here, so I get all excited when other people share their spring photos.
