Now this is What Moves Me

My favorite season is spring. I snapped this photo today of the two wild dogwood trees that have been growing since the day we moved in. We had one other, but it bit the dust several years ago. We have a pink dogwood in a corner of our front yard. What truly moves me is the greening up of springtime. The grass, the misty look of new leaves on the trees, and the flowers, of course. Many like fall, but to me spring is a rebirth.

My husband loves to see new buds on trees and our grass going from dry and brown to green and healthy. Usually means the mower comes out once a month, but he loves to mow the lawn, too.

That’s exactly what happens here, except hubs doesn’t like mowing anymore. We don’t even own a lawnmower anymore.

Your place is beautiful! Over here it's just all heat, heat, heat and more heat plus humidity so I have to do extra watering on my plants so they don't dry up.

I have always liked late winter/early spring when crocuses, hyacinths, and daffodils pop up. After that just give me my summer.

I love both spring and fall. Spring is a rebirth and fall the warm colors, the smell of the chestnuts on an open fire, the last warm days of the year.

They are really pretty. At least my China Berry trees blossomed and the hummers and bees had a good time feeding on them. My elms produced their seeds but I have yet to see any blooms, I guess they are either invisible or downright ugly.

Thanks! The bees seem to be out so early this year. No elms on our property, but lots of pollen this time of year here. Glad I’m not allergic.

I haven't heard if there's a pollen problem here, I'm not allergic either so I wouldn't have noticed. I'm hoping to get some more rain but that remains to be seen.

@rebelann We have been enjoying the sunshine and the great outdoors the last 2 days. Hubs gets sinus problems with the pollen, and hasn’t been too bad. It’s supposed to be a bad season for it. Hopefully, it will rain as predicted for tomorrow. Too much to water here with the hose.
