Once in a lifetime spring???

Every day the last couple of weeks, when I head out into Ames, I almost faint, the spring flowering show has been so beautiful.  You know how it usually goes?  You wait all of Feb, March and some of April for the blossoms to pop, and a day or so after they do, you get an April shower, and it’s all gone, in the blink of an eye.  And usually it’s a procession, yellow forsythia first, then red buds, THEN white apple blossoms and finally the violets and crab apples.  As the next blossom appears, the previous ones fade.  This year, it’s all out there at once, lingering until the last one on stage has made its appearance!

We’ve had a gentle rain this morning on this side of town, but if the skies clear, I think I can get out there and get some more photos of this once in a lifetime spring!

    I wholeheartedly agree! It’s been a beautiful spring. I just hadn’t quite processed “why”. Loving our spring blossoms, too.
