A Walk in the Park

It’s May, and I’m looking forward to the colorful blooms that open during this spring month. The Bluebells have already reached their peak bloom; the Daffodils have come and gone, and so have most of the Tulips. Likewise have the Cherry blossoms.

Our Rhododendrons and Azaleas are the big show-stoppers right now. Next in line will be Peonies and Wisteria. The sun is warmer and the days are getting longer. I love watching the march of the spring blossoms! Even the local park pond life is enjoying the warm rays of the sun!
