Tell me Thursday - Spring Emerging

Yesterday was the warmest day of the this year and every plant and tree seemed to be taking advantage of the warmth and sun. The buds on our cherry tree are half out and I can't wait till it is full bloom. It is wonderful that spring is in the air and all the great things that come with it. One of my favorites this year is the park, now that my daughter is almost 4 and can really take advantage of it. Spring is one of the best times to go to our local park, not too hot or too cold. Wonderful.

So, Yesterday I just wanted to be outside and while I was out in the yard I noticed the way the sun was shining on the birch tree buds. The buds are just coming out and look a bit like pussy willows. I took a few pictures of other plants, but these were my favorites. I only posted one of the birch tree, but I had two outtakes I like too. So today I'm posting those today.

I hope you have enjoyed my photos and are enjoying the start of spring.
