Longing for Spring

The major theme in a lot of blog posts that I have seen this week are Spring-based. Stinky for someone who still has a few weeks yet until winter is "over." Unfortunately we can still get blizzards through April, here in the great plains. I am so jealous of y'all who get to experience the wonderful fragrance of fresh blooms already! Can you send some of your spring-time over here please?

Because I've been pouting about not having any spring time here I figured I could at least fantasize about it and look at last years pictures of our wonderful spring blooms... but then I just couldn't help but share!
I hope y'all enjoy :)
Have a wonderful week and superb weekend!!

Mercy!!! :)
The pics. of the blooming tree are from last Spring! But I LOVE the beautiful baby-pink bundles of flowers all over :)
I'm doing fantstic. The weather has been very nice outside, which makes the days go by more quickly. School is still going. I cannot wait until I'm finished! Mom and I made a rough draft on the graduation celebration - I'm excited :)
How about you? How are things going? What's new w. you?
