Trees in bloom

The weather was beautiful this past weekend! I decided to take the camera out and snap a few photos of the gorgeous flowering trees in our neighborhood. The blooms seem to be particularly profuse this year. But it's a fleeting pleasure...in a few short days, the flowers will be gone!

I know what you mean. The trees on the drive to work are amazing..but I also know that it's a short lived thing. But I truly am in awe of all the beautiful trees this time of year. I have a couple at my house but they aren't very big yet..so their time is coming. Thanks for sharing the great tree pictures.

Great pics, Janet. The trees are especially beautiful this year. I do believe that God had extra paint on His brush this year. Maybe He is giving us something awesome to look at this Spring after that very cold and long Winter that He gave us.

Gorgeous pictures! I need to take some of the trees around here. I wish the flowers on them lasted longer!
