Spring is Sprung

Happy Spring! First of all, let me apologize for my lack of posts over the past couple weeks. I was a busy girl! My parents’ 40th anniversary is at the end of March, and this past weekend my brother and I (and many of their friends and family!) surprised them with a party in their honor. As you can imagine, all of my free time was put into cooking, baking, decorating and scheming! No pictures yet, but I’ll certainly share some with you when I receive them.

Now that I’ve updated you with what I’ve been up to, let’s get to today’s image! I don’t know about you, but nothing says “Spring” to me quite like all the varieties of beautiful flowering trees. Whether it’s cherry, pear, or in this case, plum, these blossoms remind me that warmer weather and longer days are on their way. I’m ready! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by and as always I love to read your comments! πŸ™‚

    I am so jealous Erin. Still in the 20’s here in CT and it snowed on Tuesday. Send spring up here. Great bokeh in the image Erin.

  5. Outstanding shot, Erin. This is one of the most beautiful times of year (Spring) and your image really captures it very nicely.

  6. I really love those colors Erin, well seen and captured my friend! Perfect timing, too, I might add… I am so ready for spring this year!

    • Thanks so much! I too am incredibly ready for Spring. Though I don’t have to contend with the snow many of you do, this has been the coolest March I can remember in my 13 years here in SC. Here’s hoping Spring comes soon for all of us! πŸ™‚
