Why I love springtime...

Bluebell's form a carpet in our neighbors lawn. *Edit: Thanks for the correction, these are actually Scilla siberica, not bluebells. A tromp in the woods and we find clumps... ...then the motherload of blooming bloodroot.
Absolutely stunning!

Blossoms on trees all around.
The lovely magnolia just about to flower.

Ah yes, it's springtime!!!

Oh, they look so gorgeous! I am with Paper Relics - we pretty much go from a mild winter to summer. 88 degrees yesterday and a glorious day at the beach! :) Silke

How lovely! The flower in the 2nd photo looks like Scilla siberica, which is a bit like a bluebell, but much smaller and more delicate. My kids call them "sillies" because when they were little they couldn't quite manage 'scilla."

Yep, Jenn is right. Those are scilla siberica (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scilla_siberica) I just love them. I love how their stems are an indigo blue, and if you dig up the little bulbs, they are too.
Great photos - springtime blossoms are so hopeful.

It's all so lovely... I too am feeling the urge to go out and shoot some photos. A digital camera would make that so much easier! Thanks for getting us in the mood... in the last couple of days it has burst into bloom around here.. all the trees are full of color or they are budding out with tiny green leaves... it won't be long and the trees and bushes will be filled with leaves and the thought of spring will have faded and summer will be upon us..
