Loving this time of year here. You never know about Texas. We might have another ice storm next week, so I'm determined to enjoy our momentarily beautiful weather that's made the first flowers of spring appear especially early. It's our first spring in this house, so I was pleased when these little guys popped up in the front flower beds:
And their larger cousins:
I've never smelled such a deliciously spring fragrance as peach blossoms:
I had to cut a few of these and put them in water in my house to enjoy them up-close. I also cut a few branches off my pear tree, hoping to force them to bloom early indoors. They make a striking centerpiece, even if I do say so.
Of course, we're a ways off from "true" spring, and even farther away from summer. I know how lucky I am to have a few recent (and totally goofy!) memories of tropical weather to hold me over until then...Ahh....and we wonder why our kids are crazy...
