Spring Beauty

Yesterday started out rainy and drizzly.  Later in the afternoon there was a tornado warning for our county.  A tornado did touch down a few miles from my daughter, but no damage was reported.


In between, there wasn't a lot of sun but it was a nice day.  I always go over to visit my mom on Sunday afternoons.  I took my camera because I knew the crabapple trees were in bloom there.  I walked around the building to take these pictures.  The only edits are resizing and addition of my name.









Mom has the best view from her apartment.  Better than anyone else.  Here are pictures from her second story windows.







I hope everyone was safe from the storms yesterday.  Today is cold and windy here.  I hope the wind doesn't blow off all those beautiful blossoms.  Glad I took the pictures yesterday.


Giveaway still going on here.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy  your week.

Until next time


Barb

Apple blossom is so lovely. My apple trees are just getting ready to show their blossom.

Your pictures are lovely, Barb...so many beautiful blossoming trees! My cherry tree is about done and the apple trees are blossoming today! Can you believe we had snow flurries this morning...and 75 yesterday?

such a beautiful setting and she must be revelling in the glory of all those beautiful blossoms. Hopefully they don't get shattered too soon; beautiful photos Barb

Spring is lovely. The trees are gorgeous. I stay outside most of the time now and make myself come in. I weeded for two hours today which I do not mind.

Got to love these pinks. Your mom does have a wonderful view. You captured some wonderful shots.
Glad the tornado did not do damage at your daughter's home.
