Spring IS around the corner!

Glorious sunshine for the first time in a week and a half! Temps up to the mid seventies.  Evidence is clear in Caneyhead that Spring really is around the corner!






Red Bud trees are blooming in yards and in the woods.  A little town near here has a "Red Bud Festival" every year.







Honeysuckle has started blooming in the edges of the woods as well.











In the yard, there's clover here and there.








   

And the peach trees are sporting their blooms.











Anywhere they can, dewberries are blooming out as well.








Not to be outdone, the pine trees are doing their own thing.






So, for a while now in S.E. Texas, no matter what color your car, it will have a dusty yellow topcoat courtesy of Mother Nature.


Which brings us to this Maxine Cartoon.

  2. It was an absolute beautiful day today. We said goodbye to a dear friend and now he is in the hands of Lord and the evening gave us a beautiful life here on earth. Just pretty!

    1. Seems there is always beauty around to comfort and cheer us if we pause long enough to see it.

  3. That coating of yellow-green pollen will hit us soon. The stuff gets everywhere.

    1. Ugh! Yeah. Pollen is, I suppose, one of those necessary evils.

  4. Those peach, clover and honeysuckle trees are lovely...especially the clover one. Makes me look forward to spring, living vicariously through your photos because I don't think I've come across trees like that in many parts of the city except for maybe the pine trees (I think I've passed some of them on a road somewhere). Pollen is so annoying but as you said...a necessary evil. It comes with the territory. Nature at it's best. Or at it's worse, depending on how you look at it.

    I love Maxine! She's always fun.

    1. Nicole, I am thrilled to have you visit Caneyhead! Glad I could add a little variety to your day. Once upon a time, I could have lived in a city and been happy. But now I'm too rooted to my ways. I actually breathe an "auww" moment when I return from Beaumont to Caneyhead every day and the canopy of trees tower above me.

  5. Barbara, thanks for the amazing pics. I grew up in Michigan and really miss the seasonal changes. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to go outside and enjoy sunny blue skies and temps in the upper 80s. Sigh.

    1. The wonder of Texas is two weeks ago the fear of freezing precipitation, last week enough rain to cause flooding, and this week nice 50+ nights and today we had a high in the mid 80's!
