Signs of Spring

It is that time of year again when the seasons shift from winter to spring in my part of the world. Although I was not happy about losing an hour of sleep because of Daylight Savings Time, I am looking forward to longer and warmer days. The official start of spring occurs next week! 🙂

    1. I also like the way the photos in this week’s post capture the transition from winter to spring, and I do not get tired of seeing beautiful flowers in photos or in person.

      Thank you for your kind comments and for liking this post and “A Tale of Two Trees.” 🙂
