Spring Is....

 Finally here in the south....I am so happy that the cooler weather is on its way out...we had a nice rain shower early today which helped so much with the pollen...my eyes and nose is thankful for the rain today...
 This redbud tree is my favorite...so pretty and bursting with color in each tiny flower on the tree...
 The first tulip of the season...
 Lovely little signs of new life amongst the dead of the leaves from the winter months...
 Such lacy and dainty flowers from these lovely ladies...
 The leaves will be removed soon and these little beauties normally bloom all summer for my mom...hopefully they will do the same for me this year...
 These are double buttercups and are so very pretty...
I am thrilled to see all the new life springing up around here...we have had so much sadness this past year that with the coming of spring I am looking forward to some beauty...we had an unexpected death in the family a little over a week ago and it was quite frankly hard to take...a precious family member only a year and a half older than myself...not sick, just fell dead in her home...I have a niece who is only 24 who is having a double mastectomy on the 29th of this month...and my lovely mom has pneumonia which is not good at her age or the health that she is in...please keep us in your prayers...especially mom and also for my niece who has a long journey ahead of her...she has two small children ages 3 and 6...needless to say I welcome spring and the rebirth and new growth that it represents for all...
