Spring Splendor*

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend?
I was back in my country house once again... 
just in time to enjoy the blooming fruit trees!
well-well-well...
Spring is really happening~ Finally!
Please enjoy this little bit of splendor from my weekend:
.
This is a matured white flowering plum tree growing next to the garage.
Oh, looks so breathtaking this time of the year!
.
...the showy delicate flowers only bloom once a year & for less than a week!
.
" better savor this special moment while it lasts..."
Simply had to bring the outdoor-indoor so I could admire it some more!
.
A very simple branch flower arrangement would have to do....
.
" voilà ! "
Nothing like having fresh blossoms in the house, isn't it?
Anywayyy...
It's so wonderful to see the beginning sign of Spring all around!
This past winter has been too long & quite harsh on most of us. 
First day of Spring was certainly most welcome!
Are you seeing+feeling it in your zipcode already?

~XOXO*

Gorgeous pictures...I felt it this weekend and see some life in the garden but the forecast for this week is grim! Have a wonderful Monday!

Having fresh blooms in the home is a wonderful luxury (and makes such a difference) ... it's even better if the blooms come from your own garden! :)

That flowering plum tree is stunning!! How wonderful that you could bring a little of the outside in ... as you move to your spring, I'm moving towards autumn (my favourite time of year).

Spring sprang a long time ago in my Florida zip code, Lenore, and now it's summertime. I am so glad you're enjoying the fine weather up your way along with the showy, sweet smelling blossoms. Have a wonderful day, dear friend!

It was raining buckets yesterday but today is sunny and bright. Lovely flowers! I cannot believe those bloom only for one week. Crazy!

McVal said...

You have a summer house??! I'm jealous... And the blossoms are gorgeous! I can't wait until my lilacs are in bloom!
