Cherry Blossoms

and Snow this morning

It melted almost as fast as it fell, but it was so pretty laying on the grass.

The Weeping Cherry is one of the favorite trees in my yard.
I trim it so it looks like an umbrella,
wish the blooms would last longer...........

Little Snowdrops, that actually had snow on them this morning.

Snow on the Tulips and Daffodils too.

I love the Weeping Willow when the little leaf bud first starts to pop
it is such a beautiful green.

Virginia Bluebells ready to bloom!

Star Magnolia, once again enjoy the blooms they won't be here for long.

My daughter had a birthday and will graduate
with a Chemistry degree in a couple weeks.
My sweet neighbor helped me decorate her Red Velvet Birthday
cake and it turned out great!! My son is lighting her candles and
will graduate from High School in June.

And my youngest is getting into lots of mischief and needs a haircut!!
She's watching me on the computer.

Happy Spring!

I had so much fun with my first Outdoor Wednesday, sponsored by Susan I decided to join in again this week.

  1. Great shots o the flowers with snow, but I especially love the Cherry tree. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Happy Outdoor Wednesday

    Thanks for sharing your photos.~ Susan

  3. Snow with blooming flowers is just wrong -- no wonder your willow is weeping LOL! Happy Birthday to your daughter -- I hope her after graduation plan is shaping up faster than our soon-to-be Chem grad's is -- but then I think we've discussed this haha!

  4. Shawn,
    Congratulations on your first Outdoor Wednesday! Your photos are beautiful; I am in snow country also. What an exciting time for both your son & daughter, my DD graduated with a business degree last year so I understand your excitement. I am also a quilter, and actually used to teach quilting when I lived in Dubai! It was one of the few craft projects we could get the supplies for in that area and I am far from an expert but knew enough to do the basics. Great to meet you, stop by if you get time. ~Cathy~

  5. Shawn,
    I looked through your quilt album and wanted to say what beautiful work you do!

  6. what beautiful pictures!! i love spring!! and cheery blossoms are a fav!!
