Spring Blossoms

Spring could easily be a time for fairies.  Everything has exploded in blooms.  Even the grass; which would normally not be magical, looks as if the fairies have been tending garden here.


Here is my town's most famous resident, the albino grey squirrel. He comes down from a tree to investigate what sort of magic has been at play.

This is one of my favorite spring flowering shrubs the flowering quince.

So many beautiful blossoms all blooming at once due to the long winter.  Has spring's magic been at work in your neighborhood?

I love the white squirrel! That is a beautiful picture of the daffodils and rain flowers (is that right?) along the rustic fence.

The little flowers in the lawn are enchanting, and made even more so by the albino squirrel. Beautiful spring flowers!

Beautiful flowers and I love the white squirrel. When my daughter was young we took a trip to Washington DC and saw a white squirrel in the park. She was more excited about that white squirrel than the monuments! Laura

The albino squirrel is a star and I love those poets narcissus. Very pretty and they smell wonderful, that rich white flower scent

What beautiful images! We have had a depressing two days of snow here. The grass is barely starting to turn green and just a few trees blooming. But our turn will come, it always does! My daughter is going to love seeing the squirrel!

Love your pictures- the flowers look so pretty! The albino squirrel is pretty neat! We have a black squirrel with a big white patch at his tail/back area. I call him the old man :-).
I have a ways to go before I see spring flowers, but I can't wait!
