Spring is bustin’ out all over!

After all the unusually cold weather we have experienced this year, the past couple of days have done a 360 and we have had to start the ceiling fans (and some say those two dreaded words “air conditioner”!)  Of course this has triggered a burst of bloom in the garden and even the asparagus is starting to appear!  Here are a few pictures of what is happening in my garden, and a couple from the park where I walk my dog.

Everyone is complaining about allergies right now – the strong winds are stirring all the pollen up and causing distress!  Here is one of the culprits – Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana) with its millions of little “flowers”.

Lastly, for no reason other than it is beautiful, a photo of various brambles, vines, and berries.
