Emergent Spring Color

During these first weeks of Spring on the east coast, our days can often look like this…
Finding the EMERGENT SPRING COLOR FEST peering through our GREY and BROWN mornings, is a daily delight.

Good Morning Day Lilies…
Welcome Back Weeping Cherry…
Hello Magnolia Buds…
So very good to see you ALL again.

Also, don’t forget…it is “A Beautiful Life” Friday over at The Inspired Room . Take a few minutes to check out all of the post links you will find there. It is a great weekend treat!

Beautiful photographs. Our N.C. days look the same. Can’t wait for the trees to burst forth!! Hope you read my MIA comments for you on TP. We’ve missed you!!

Heather Bullard said:

All so beautiful. We hardly have seasons here in southern California so it’s nice to see the changes in your photos. Happy Spring! Smiles, H
PS. The foyer looks fantastic!

Kim @ Forever Wherever said:

The Magnolias are stunning! We are feeling like summer already! :-)

Beautiful photos Shawn! By the looks of it we are about 3 weeks ahead in our Spring here in Atlanta- which may sound nice until you consider the fine dusting of sulfur yellow pollen covering everything!

Hope to post some pics of my garden when TP gets the “community” up and running. Have a wonderful evening!

Beautiful photos Shawn….are those tree peonies? I am in no way a gardner however, the last house we lived in there were tree peonies and I probably should have dug them up and taken them with me! Did you plant yours?? Peonies are my favorite!

This is beautiful! We’re seeing signs of welcome Spring, here at Lake of the Ozarks. Snow is still a bit of a possibility, but glimpses of green make us very happy!

The photos of the Magnolia buds are gorgeous!

The colors on your cherry and magnolia trees are stunning. We can really appreciate them now — when we haven’t seen color like that in a long time. Come summer we might not remember what we were missing. Thanks for sharing.
