Spring sprang on my way to get pizza.

I ordered a pizza tonight partly due to hunger and laziness and partly due to the fact that there is a big magnolia tree that I wanted an excuse to walk by on my way to get the pizza. I remember last year when it bloomed. It stopped me in my tracks. The flowers are all huge and meaty and gorgeous and the smell is out of this world, knock me over, delicious. Well, as it turns out, not only did I see the magnolia tree, I also saw a bunch of other fabulous things peeking their little buds out in my neighborhood. I've been missing the emergence because my daily commute no longer involves walking past that part of my neighborhood. I am now very much familiar with other parts of my neighborhood, such as the renovation of a local pub, but there isn't much greenery on my new daily route.

It was refreshing to see all the color and life emerging...makes me antsy for summer vacation!

  1. Beautiful! I love flowers! Your trees seem a little ahead of us here in MN. I'm jealous!
