Just for a little bit of good cheer, especially in parts of the world that have not yet rounded the corner into spring, I bring you my neighborhood, right now. A week ago hardly any flowers were blooming, including on the trees.
This first photo is no beauty, but no picture of our neighborhood in early spring would be complete without the-trees-that-smell-like-pee. (Later on, they develop fruits that smell like vomit.) Why does anyone grow these?
Whatever the hell you call these. (Hyacinth?)
No caption necessary.
I don't know. These are like daisies that grow on trees.
These periwinkle are just visiting from England.
Tulip tree? I think? They are everywhere here. Very exotic.
