Spring has Sprung

We have had a couple of beautiful days here, however, our family in Minnesota has snow again, in May!  The weather is certainly odd this year.  I thought I'd share some photos from our yard to brighten your day in case you are also having bad weather.

The trees are finally getting their leaves.

Some azaleas are blooming.

The sky was an incredibly brilliant blue on Tuesday.

The hyacinth bulbs are up and blooming.

Shrubs are flowering.

Our front yard cherry tree is so pretty this year - particularly on a sunny day!

There are so many things happening for (Inter)National Scrapbook Day this weekend that I can't even begin to list them here.  Check the websites, blogs and Facebook pages of your favorite stores, manufacturers and designers to see their special offers.

We have our semi-annual Town ReUseit Day this weekend and I am putting together boxes of extra "stuff" to take to the Drop off/Swap off event. It feels great to get some of the things we don't really need out of the house.  I hope that people who can use them will be happy to pick up our "treasures" tomorrow!

I did get my second LOAD layout finished and uploaded on time - 29 to go!  I'll share the page I made soon.  It is fun to be making pages again.  If you are doing LOAD let me know how it is going for you so far.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Incredible photos, Diane! Happy spring

    1. Thanks Carolee,
      I love spring - except for the allergies I seem to be developing!
      Happy Spring to you too!

  2. You are getting better and better with your camera. You need to enter those photos in a contest. We are having record breaking weather in Washington state this weekend.

    1. Hi MaryAnn,
      You are sweet to say that. It's all in the editing, I need to practice more to get better "first shots" but I do enjoy the garden and like to save the images to enjoy in the dark winter months.
      Enjoy the weather while you can - it's very changeable this year!

  3. Beautiful Flowers, brightened my day right up!

    1. Hi Geezee
      Thanks for stopping by - I am glad I helped make your day a little brighter!

  4. I love the pictures and the flowers are so beautiful. I will have roses soon and the buds are on the bushes. My butterfly bushes are not very tall yet. Take a look at my flower pics on my blog.... Have a great Monday.

    1. Hi Sandy, Thanks for stopping by. Flowers just make me smile - and sometimes sneeze!
      I hope all is well with you and your family.
