Who’s Ready for Spring???

Last night we dodged a bullet – the snowstorm went south of us where it dumped up to 11 inches of snow in some areas! Whew! Glad we missed that! It’s nearly the end of February and I’m looking forward to Spring! How about you! This little tree is just off my deck. It’s a flowering crab apple tree. In Spring, it has pink rose like buds that open to pretty white flowers. Last Spring the tree was covered in them and the bees took advantage of that! In the fall, cherry-like red berries appear that last well through November. The birds love them! It’s rather ironic though that when the flower petals drop to the ground, it looks like it snowed – again!
