Spring's Almost Here...

Here is a sure sign of Spring in Memphis...Redbud trees in bloom, as seen here in the Belle Meade neighborhood.

I wish it were that pretty today in Memphis. We are currently experiencing thunderstorms (and have already lost power once), with colder weather and a chance to see a few snowflakes tomorrow. I hope that you're enjoying nicer weather where you are!

Hi Andrea...We had glorious Springlike weather in the Ozarks over the weekend. I even wore sandals Saturday and Sunday! But, alas, Winter has returned, today!

No sign of any blooms yet, but that's ok. Last year things got too early a start and never did quite catch up, after a late freeze.

I love your photo! It tells me, our Redbud will be blooming soon..perhaps another four or so weeks! Can't wait!

I was just in Memphis this past weekend and it was GLORIOUS!!! I enjoyed the sun and actually came back to Alabama quite sun-burned!

Not nice now, though. The weather we had last night and today is at you right now, I think. Good luck.

Lovely redbuds--hope the weather goes on its way swiftly without harming anyone along the way. We don't really miss thunderstorms since we moved from Jackson, Mississippi, to Portland, Oregon.

Hi again! :)

I just wanted to tell you that I updated the post I published today because... I had forgotten to add one very lovely mural, which I am sure you'd love to see. So here it is. :) (Sorry about that!)

Great photo. Each year I admire the red buds and most years I miss taking a photo. When I like them most is as I'm driving and they are backlit by the setting sun. It's like the tree is on fire.

Oooh! Wonderful wonderful blossoms! I posted one myself last month and I can't wait to post some more!

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and for leaving your comments. Do visit again! Hope you're enjoying your week. Feels like Friday already to me!
