~ Finally Springtime in Virginia ~

Hello friends....it's Saturday and I have a Workshop at the studio today. That's makes three this week...no wonder I am just a little extra tired!
After the shop closed last night, had to run a few errands for class supplies.
While out I was struck by how beautiful the day had been and by the progression of the blooming trees in town.

In the parking lot I had to grab my mini ipad to capture some very low and gorgeous clouds hanging over the town.
They seemed to be everywhere and I was so pleased to see that many of my friends on Facebook had also taken the time to capture them.
Never get so busy that you neglect to notice all the beauty around you. 
The Spring sky was intensely blue....Greek Blue!

The cherry trees have come into full bloom so quickly that they are already pushing out new green leaves right behind the flowers.
Winter seemed to last forever here in Virginia and now it's a mad rush to Spring!

What's this?.....did it snow again??

No...this is just a beautiful carpet of fallen cherry blossoms.

Aren't they just lovely?
All pale pink and delicate.
When a stiff breeze blows them off the branches, they do look like falling snow.
Well that's it, just a quick little Saturday post.
What is your part of the world looking like??


Until next time...be kind and stay creative.

Nothing as pretty as Spring in Virginia! But don't blink, I think this year we might be moving into Summer quick. Happy Saturday Janet!

Still cold here, we had some snow last night. It'll be a while before we see spring, but the weather's actually normal. No global warming acting up this year! :)

I drop a leave a response each time I especially enjoy a
article on a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute
to the discussion. It's caused by the sincerness communicated in the article I looked at. And after this post "~ Finally Springtime in Virginia ~". I was moved enough to drop a thought ;-) I actually do have some questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be simply me or do some of these remarks come across like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list the complete urls of all your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
