Stunning photos, here.

My blooms (correction: the apartment building's blooms...) never bloomed. Looked like daffodils and possibly tulips...but nothing materialized beyond green stalks.

Spring has definitely sprung otherwise here. Been watching squirrels and bunnies chase each other around in crazy mating dances/rituals in "my" backyard (the bunnies are hilarious--they literally chase each other around and around in circles, then one or the other hops straight up, very high in the air), and the finches and mourning doves and cardinals have all been busy in that department as well.

Spring is definitely pouting her lips, batting her eyelashes and swinging her hips.

Everything in my yard has been so beautiful and prolific (including the weeds). I have not taken many pictures in which one can see the neglect of this gardener, who loves all of her plants and who detests weeding!

This is the first year my azaleas out front did not bloom. Well, I should say my pink and red azaleas. The white ones are blooming now. Generally, my neighbors call to tell me how beautiful my yard looks with the azaleas and rhododendrons in full bloom, but for some reason--no buds, no blooms. Not sure why.

We've had so much rain that the roses are starting to sag and come apart, but they have been beautiful, and they will bloom again. I will post some pictures of them.

I have seen my rabbit family this year. They drive Molly crazy when we got outside unawares and there one of them stands. It's a good thing I am a woman with some meat on my bones or I probably would have broken an arm or a leg trying to hold on to Molly.
