More Spring glories………
This has been a somewhat epic Spring – early by a month, enticing as all get-out with the proliferation of blooming things as well as some equally unseasonable scents to go with the flowers. I had forgotten how great Kentucky can smell.

I can’t get enough of these gorgeous blooms.
This dogwood explains its design, set next to this white home and co-existing with such an enhancing flowering.
More of the Native Pinks, the Dogwoods have truly been the stars of the local show for my money.
Here, once again, is Nature’s rendition of a chaotic romp set in little Audubon Park in Louisville.
This is pretty much the butt-kickingest Redbud I’ve seen so far.
The “roadside look” I always enjoy. These blooming things show up in all the local forests, creating a lacy framework around which the visible harbingers of Spring group. Notice too all the super-young leaves on local trees as they grow and re-color to their deeper greens as the season progresses.
Inside the local neighborhood, things are picking up serious steam as well.
This Kwanzan Cherry tree does its usual double-blooming trick, increasing the weight on those branches by about 10 times.
All in all, we are so blessed here.
