Spring Signs

Here it is Valentines’ Day in mid-February and we continue to see these wonderful signs that spring is indeed coming to North Carolina.

Are these not cherry trees that have been in bloom for several weeks?

Happy Valentine’s Day to all. May you be with the love of your life.

    wow! I didn’t know you were so close to spring down there! We have had a week or more of snow every day. Temps in the 20’s is nice, it’s been much colder not long ago. We’re looking at weeks and weeks till spring up here in Michigan! Lovely to see your cherry trees!

  4. Ahhh, the beautiful ‘Okame’, our earliest cherry…with the best colored flowers I think! Looking forward to seeing you soon.

    I’m a bit late, but hope it was a happy Valentine’s Day for you and your wife John. 🙂 I haven’t seen any cherry blossom here yet, but my Mum in the UK sent me a photo of hers yesterday. A lovely sight!
