Woo, the woozy trees proffer their buds,
As if to say, "Hey Meester, you like my seester?"

I've never liked those trees. Too messy.

I am told the Arb is very sweet smelling now. Our lilac is open. Love it.

Our neighbors have a HUGE crabapple. Boy does that thing smell great!

My neighbor has a wall of lilacs that run the length of our properties - they're out, too...and smell great...and achoo!

It's Benedryl season.

I also have contacts, now - I wonder how it will go.

Expect the usual suspects to accuse Ann of covert racism in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...

The scent of a Star Magnolia is my favorite spring fragrance, fresh, light, illusive, and impossible to inhale deeply enough. .

Was it too late for magnolias? Did the flowering crabs steal the show? With spring, one glory succeeds another.

I appreciate the pictures and cafes. They provide a unique invitation along with welcome respite from the political back and forth.
