Blooming Trees

Everything is so green now.  Spring has arrived, full speed ahead (we'll ignore the single digit overnight temperatures forecasted for later this week).  The leaves are fully fledged now.

Trees that blossom are doing so enthusiastically, everywhere you turn, in all sorts of colour combinations.  Pink, white, purple.  Lilacs, fruit trees, you name it.

Fields are already chock full of these yellow blossoms.

What are they, you might ask?  Why, dandelions, of course!

Mmmmm, I think I can smell the lilacs from here. When my brother and I were small children my parents would pay us one penny for each dandelion we pulled out of the lawn. It was fun.
