Spring in Springfield

So far it has been a gorgeous spring here in the Queen City of the Ozarks. Our cherry blossom tree has already peaked and now has lost most of its blossoms.

 In addition to the cherry blossom blooming brilliantly we were also pleased that our grape hyacinth, tulips and daffodils came up beautifully.

Alas the most beautiful of the flowering trees, the lovely tulip tree, has also lost all its petals. I captured the below shot on a walk with Annie.

Happy Spring dear readers! How is your garden growing?
