    I can't believe this. It's the third day in a row I've been the first commenter.
    Spring is quickly coming to the Ozarks as well. Daffodils, Bradford pears, Redbuds, and Forsythia, are all starting to bloom. People with allergies are starting to sneeze.

  1. "Where are Moose and Squirrel?"

    *spoken with my best pseudo-Russian accent*

  1. Beautiful! Were those photos taken near you?

  1. back atcha Travis.... trees are blooming here in Middle TN....Give it a week of warm weather and the leaves on the big trees will start coming out.

  1. Great pictures, Travis.

  1. Travis says:

    Drilleraa: It's dark and gloomy. No suddenly spring switch got flipped out here yet.

    Marsha: We're definitely ready for it.

    Cheesy: HA!

    Songbird: I should have put a picture of Rocky & Bulwinkle!

    NNG: The first one is a google image, but the second one I took last sprint at the Tulip Festival in Skagit Valley, which is about an hour or so north of me.

    Lois: I'm seeing the same out here....just have to look a bit closely at the moment.

    Southern: Thank you Sir!

  1. Ivanhoe says:

    How wonderful! You have already flora blooming. It will take a few more weeks here in midwest, but it's in the air :o)

  1. Akelamalu says:

    The weather here is Springlike too! Doesn't it make you feel good! :)

  1. I never realized Bulwinkle was a poet! hahaha! Happy Spring, Trav!

  1. Jamie says:

    That is just beautiful. Have you ever driven the Blossom Trail in Central CA with its miles and miles of trees?

  1. When I was young March 21 was ALWAYS the first day of Spring, Travis. Now it seems to have crept forward to Mar. 20th...but anywho Happy Spring to you! :)

  1. Travis says:

    Ivanhoe: Well, we have a bit. I took the tree pic last May.

    Akelamalu: It does! And today we have lovely blue sky.

    WT4W: I know! I always remember those lines from the cartoons when I was a kid.

    Jamie: I haven't. Back when I lived down there, I got terrible hay fever and had to be very careful. But up here I hardly have any allergies at all.

    Mary: I know. I always remember it as March 21 too.

  1. Are you flowers late up there too Trav? I think those late snows have caused my blooms ouchies.

  1. Hooray & back atcha! :)

  1. I'm enjoying spring already...love the flowering trees!

    How beautiful! My sister left Thursday to go back to Iowa and she said, "Wait, where's the green grass and the flowers?" They're still under the impression it's winter up there!
