Signs of Spring

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
~John Muir

Signs of Spring are everywhere.

One of my favorite shrubs in our yard.  The Flowering Quince {Chaenomeles or japonica}was here before we built our house.  It is stunning this time of year.  When I see its blooms. I know spring is near.

My in-laws have the most beautiful yard.
The following photos were taken in their yard.


The Stell d'oro daylilies are perking up beneath the leaves.

Oklahoma Redbud tree
It has the most vibrant, beautiful color in the spring.  I recommend it over any other variety of Redbud tree.
