Spring Fling!


Move over green.  Get ready for a color explosion!  I just wish crab apple season would never end.  It would be like living in a Thomas Kinkade painting.





A popular perch.  I count 11.



A Blue Jay nest.  I know because I saw them building it at Como Lake. 



A perky Robin.




The skies the limit at the Lake Harriet Rose Gardens.




Stroll here...



Look here...


Over yonder sits my new electric bike!


It's tulip time!  

At this point the last of the crab apple petals have fluttered to the ground. But there is still a whiff of sweet lilacs floating in the city air. Catch it while you can...

The blooms are gorgeous- I can almost smell them. What's an electric bike? I love the sun bathers- they really were a crowd that day!

The apple blossoms are gorgeous! I love the shot of the turtles perching on the branch.

Glorious explosion of color [and I'm sure scents that only Spring can give us]!!

I like your reference to Thomas Kinkade.

Robins ... AND a blue jay nest. We don't see blue jays here so I'd be thrilled to watch the nest building.

I wish I could catch a whiff or a glimpse of beautiful Spring. This time of year I suffer from a terrible case of wanting to be in two places at once. There is no cure! But your photos ... And the memories they bring ) are a big help and a temporary fix!
