I love spring, and April is lovely here in PA. (By the way, that’s how they talk here — they don’t say the name of the state. They say “P-A.” I must be going native.) The pollen utterly kills my allergies, of course, but on a day like this, where the rain has temporarily washed it all from the sky, I can enjoy the flowers. (And be very grateful for the rain!) And while it’s still gray, the forsythia in particular is very striking!
Lots of people around here have forsythia hedges. We didn’t know that they were forsythia when we were house-hunting; it was summer, and everything was green.
And then there are all the cherry trees — weeping cherries and ornamental cherries.
Closer to home, I have hyacinths blooming, which I share for Mom.
And the hellebores have finally broken through and moved upright so you can see the flowers.
What’s blooming in your yard right now? What are you grateful for?
