For Judy

Judy recently asked me if the Redbud trees were blooming
in Kentucky.  Yes, Judy the Redbuds and most everything
else too! 
Redbud Tree
Pussy Willow Bush
(love it like this)
(not so much, when it
continues it's bloom)
Viburnum smells wonderful, the scent
brings back a sad memory.  They were
in full bloom the night my father passed
away.  When the funeral home came to
collect his body, they commented on
how the air was full of this scent.
Lilacs are ready to pop!  Another
wonderful fragrance.
Dogwoods: Pink
and White
Even those pesky Wild Violets
Crab Apple tree is full of blooms.

I do know 3  dogs that are loving
the warm weather.

and my girl Sophie.

Love to all,

Deb...I got all nostalgic looking at your photos. I've never seen a pussy willow after it has gone to seed! As much as I love them, I've missed this phase. Lilacs...Blogland is out to make me cry! Everyone is posting photos of lilacs, and I'm missing them something terrible!
I hope you have a great Tuesday, my friend.

Oh Deb, you are so long in front of us, imagine that your lilac`s already are almost blooming-such beautiful photoes, dear.

Wonderful photos Deb - the joys of Spring that you girls on the other side of the world are enjoying now.

Fragrances like music always trigger memories for me too, I hope there are happy memories there too.
your furry friends look happy and healthy too!!!

Oh, DEB, Your posting is the first I saw this morning. What a lovely surprise to see you posted photos of all your glorious Spring blooms for me, especially the 'Red Buds". All your blooms are truly beautiful. I also have a special admiration for Lilacs. I look forward to seeing them in bloom too. The leaves are just starting to come out on mine now. Thanks YOU Thank YOU Deb. YOU put a big smile on my face today along with many others I am sure. Hugs Judy

I do love the red buds which are just now blooming here in Virginia. The Dogwoods are just starting to open up too.. Everything seems to be about 2-3 weeks early this year! Hope we don't have any killing frosts!

Deb, I love your postings. This is my favorite time of year, when the earth just comes alive with flowers. Lovely pictures and thanks for sharing. I must say that the redbud has always been my favorite. So pretty. And I get a kick out of your dogs. So cute all of them, but that Sophie smile is adorable.

Judy said...

Love the lovely tree photos. Sweet doggies!

I love red buds.. makes me think of a car trip with my grandmother.

I kept asking her what the light purple tress were called, everytime she said "red bud" I said "no the purple ones"..this game went on and on!
Sweet memories

wow~!!~ this was a couple of weeks ago and you are still waaay ahead of us. i'm just starting to see some daffodil buds . . .
your photos are beautiful and your dogs so very cute~!
i've been put in charge of my daughter's dog (my granddog) full time now that she's gone back to school. she can't have a dog in her apartment. i find myself kept very active with two medium sized young dogs chasing around here. i do love them both though.
