I had a walk-around the neighborhood Sunday morning and found Spring everywhere.

The flowering trees are in bud, and beginning to blossom while others are in full bloom!

A Prayer in Spring by Robert Frost-

“Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.”~Robert Frost (from A Boy’s Will, 1915)

Flowering Tree in Full Bloom

The huge white flowering tree was a hive of activity in the canopy. The buzz of bees

was dizzying, and the warmth of the sun on my face when I looked up felt wonderful, healing, and nourishing.

The branches were heavy with blossoms,

papery white, with lovely “look at me!” centers.

Plus one more…

Nearly home I found a huge Sweat Pea vine spilling over a fence with dozens of busy bees.

More to come…




  1. Your Spring has sprung! 🙂 Beautiful captures, love the close-ups! Bet that sweet pea smelled awesome!!

  2. this is so beautiful- hopefully ours won’t be too far behind!

  3. You don’t say! What happened to winter?

  4. Your photos are a delight to my eyes! I can almost breathe in the sweet scent from the Sweet Pea flowers! And the blue sky is a lovely background for the delicate white flowers. Thank you for sharing your photos! 😄 And I love Robert Frost! 💜

    • Thank you so much for the visit, lovely comment and follow Jill! I’m so happy you like what you see on my blog!
      Robert Frost is in my Top 5 Poet list. Actually I think the nature poets are all my favorites! 🙂

  5. These are so pretty! wow what a gorgeous walk!

  6. Thanks for a little bit of time travel Deborah. While our unseasonably warm winter had the Daffodils confused, we won’t see this much beauty for a few months.

    • I worry about a frost coming along and wiping everything out when things bloom this early, but it is delightful, to see after seeing bare trees for months.

      • We were worried about too many things getting ‘spring’ signals but the forecast for Saturday night is -6

        • OH! Way too cold. Hope your wood pile is holding up.
          I should check our forecast b/c it started clouding up late this afternoon. It won’t be that cold thankfully.

          • It’s going to warm right back up. They’re predicting high 30s and rain on Monday.

  7. Is this in PA?! I’m blown away! Gorgeous, Deborah!

    • No not PA. South of San Francisco 50 miles in San Jose. 🙂 Thank you so much!

      • But you’re a Steelers fan? Sorry, just assumed you were in PA. Your photo makes much more sense now. 💜

        • My husband was born and bred in Steeler country. He and the kids are Steeler fans. Over the years they’ve grown on me. FWIW: I’ve lived in CA since I was 1. xx
