Signs of Spring

Everywhere I go nowadays there are signs of spring.  Hurray!  I’m fed up with this damp, dark winter.  The clocks go forward on Sunday so it will be even lighter in the evenings. 

I love it when the magnolias bloom.  This tree is a gorgeous one:

Here is another one which I pass on the way to Zachary’s school:

The blossoms are beautiful.

I love the way they seem to raise their heads to the sun. They look as though they are butterflies or birds spreading their wings, about to take off into the sky.

    Liz, I hope those beautiful magnolias didn’t get hit by the frost as those around us did – all are now sad brown droopy things. So cruel when they had been so glorious!
