I Love Springtime

It's been a blustery day. The rain moved in early with lightening and thunder off in the distance but the bad weather never came and for that I am thankful.
I drove by my first blooming dogwood of the year. It looked like a white cloud being whipped by the wind. Our giant dogwood has buds as big as a nickel. When it comes out in full bloom, it takes my breath away.
The wild honeysuckles (they are actually wild azaleas) are a little slower to come out. There is a pink one that grows near the big rock overlooking the pond down behind the barn and when the sun warms the rock, that particular honeysuckle blossoms out days before the other one that grow nearby.
Soon the woods around our house will come alive. I love springtime.
