Just sat down upon my lawn swing to enjoy the morning before the spring thunder storms develop later. Just now a slight breeze and a blizzard of cherry blossom petals snowed upon me. Another phase of spring passing as cherry and wild pear blossom shed white, their time for bloom is almost done. Next to bless with beauty will be the many apple and crab apple trees with some white and and many shades of pink and red.

Down in the former greenhouse gardens forsythia and magnolia trees, both white and purple, continue to bloom. The white star magnolia about done, the purple, a variety called "Betty" has just begun. 

This spring has been good, fairly dry, quite sunny and not too hot. 
Just thought you would like to know.
