Pretty Promises

It was a gorgeous Spring morning worthy of a few (cell phone) photos.

CrazyMom got me all wistful with her wild dogwood, wisteria and other gorgeous flora. I commented about a close up of the dogwoods and she shared some awesome shots! Thanks CrazyMom!

In our neighborhood, creamy dogwoods are more common than the white or pink varieties. Ours are just starting to awaken from their dreamy sleeps.

Morning light captured in shy buds. Don't they look luminous as they yawn and stretch their petals?

Just one more...these flowers remind me of teacups.

Check out this weeping cherry.

Cascading pink petals were such a spectacle as to nearly take my breath away.

Spring is certainly in the air, though not yet as fully as in Hotlanta. Do visit CrazyMom's blog for real displays of delicate beauty.

Despair not northern cousins, Spring is on its way!

Happy to indulge your passion pour les fleurs

Preposterously pink petals are pretty pulchritudinous!

The grass is starting to turn green here, and I see buds on my lilac bush. Maybe spring really is on its way, though not as quickly as it is by you!
