Last Thursday I was out driving and saw the first daffodils.
Friday I saw more daffodils and some forsythia. Our grass started going from brown to green. I also took these pictures of the trees out in front of our house and our neighbor's house.
The leaves on our trees turn red before they turn green. I don't know what kind of trees they are.
I decided to check out the landscaping in front and see if there was anything happening. There was!
Spring literally 'sprung' last week at our house!
I know lots of the country is in full bloom, and some of it has been for a couple of months or more. It's May 1st, and this is the view of the trees out our back door.
Here are a male red-bellied woodpecker and a male downy woodpecker on side-by-side trees, which happen to still be barren.
But on the drive to church today there were hints of green in the tops of some of the early budding trees. Soon we will be in full bloom too.
And then in five months we'll be prepping for winter again.
