|Budding Forsythia Bushes|
I need to walk more and I truly miss my Tipper who I would walk when the weather changed. Yesterday as I was walking I stopped to talk with some neighbors who have forsythia bushes along their fence. They are just starting to bud this year. In years past, they have been in full bloom along with the daffadils.

|Tulips for the Madonna|
The Madonna across the alley from me has some spring blooms cropping up just in time for the Month of Mary in May.

The tulips are starting to bloom very nicely and this group of bulbs flowered just below the Rhododendrons that I featured last year. This year the buds are just starting to get big enough and should be open soon.
I'm not sure what this tree is in one of my neighbor's yards, but the blossoms remind me of crab apple. I'll have to ask my neighbor what kind of tree this is but it is in full bloom. What surprised me was that there was a bird in it singing but it never flew away. The birds are getting used to my comings and goings and don't flit away as much when I go in and out of my kitchen.
So spring has sprung, the grass has risen and I know where the birdie is. In the tree waiting for the blossoms to turn into fruit.
