How delightful Sylvia! Nothing blooming here yet, but spring can't be far off!

Penelope Puddlisms said...

It has been one of those winters where patience is, indeed, required to see those blooms! But it is always worth the wait, isn’t it?

TexWisGirl said...

such beautiful blossoms! love that knobby tree, too.

Sally in WA said...

Your Spring blossoms are so lovely today. More snow in MN this morning so it will still be awhile for us back here. That knobby tree is really neat!

Have a great week, Sylvia.

Reader Wil said...

Happy spring, Sylvia! The flowers in the last photo look like my camelias, only they are red!
Have a great week and a sunny one like we have.

Spring has sprung! That is a great looking park (great looking photos of it also). We even saw a lot of things in bloom in the desert last week.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
