It's April

I saw my first dogwood blossom this morning. The pollen started and Jilda didn't want to walk today so I shoe'd up and headed out.
When I rounded the barn, the dappled morning sun hit one of the blossoms on the wild dogwood and it looked like a spotlight. It was too high in the tree to get a decent photograph but it was comforting to know that the other dogwood would not be far behind.
The big tree in our yard is on the verge, but it will take a few more days of warm weather to bring them out.
When I reached the back gate, I noticed the pear tree was also blooming. I used one of the "creative" Hipstamatic photo paks but once I downloaded the picture it looks like a color print that had water spilled on it....not what I envisioned, but it will have to do for tonight.
It's been a wacky auto day as both our vehicles chose today to act up. Mine is in the shop and Jilda's will probably have to go tomorrow unless by some miracle I can figure out what happened to her car.
We'll see. I sent my column in early this morning. It's about Jilda discovering that her driver's license was about to expire. I had a lot of fun with it but I won't be able to share it until next Monday evening.
Here's hoping spring is around the corner for my northern blog buddies.


  1. Just hearing that Spring exists gives me a little hope we will see it here :)

  2. I'm laughing at Launna's comment - I feel the same here in Montreal - although it's warming up - and the snows rapidly melting - I STILL see white out there!
    Happy Spring Rick !

  3. Glad it is Spring like SOMEWHERE cuz it sure isn't HERE! We were in the teens today with wind chill. CRAZY weather which makes me CRAZIER than I already am~ Happy Spring to you- Diana

  4. Nice and sunny up here in Vancouver, hit 15 C. That's why we call Lotus Land the Miami of Canada. Happy spring to you too, my friend.

  5. Three trees are budding here a couple of weeks later than usual this year Rick due to the long winter we had. But better late than never, right? :)

  6. Tell Jilda I understand...mine expires in the fall of this year! Yes, spring is definitely making an entrance and a dramatic entrance it seems...she's definitely a tease this year!
