Spring has sprung!

I realize that more than a week has gone by since my last pictures; but it has been rainy the last few days and I wanted to take pictures on a day when the sun was out. The rain continues to fall, so I decided to go ahead and take my pictures a couple days late.

The view of our front yard

The view of the south side of our yard. (the first was taken several days ago since the pear tree was in full bloom. The second was taken today along with the rest of the pictures.)
The white buds have since mostly fallen off, being replaced by leaves of green.

The view looking down our sidewalk. The pear tree may be past its climax, but the redbuds are in full color.

Another shot

And finally a look at the status of our grass in the approximate place where I took the picture of Teddy last week. It is much greener now.

Each day things seem to have taken a hug step in color and in growth. I plan on returning next week with pictures on the progress of the leaves on the trees. Even our oak tree is starting to leaf-out. I took a lot of pictures of our yard that are not included in this post. Maybe they will make it into a general spring summary post later. This has been just about the nicest spring I can ever remember!
