Although it's late April, we only started to see signs of Spring
on the weekend, when we returned to our old midtown neighbourhood for a quick, late lunch.
Hazelton Lanes, a nearby shopping mall, is undergoing a massive reconstruction, and the café we wanted to go to was gone. But it was close to 4 pm and we were starving.
We had a nutritious, heart-healthy lunch--okay, chocolate bars and Diet Pepsi-- and I took a few photos of the neighbourhood to remind myself that, yes, Spring will come soon. Even to the suburbs.
Daffodils? Yup, spring.ReplyDelete
It's two to three weeks late this year.Delete
We got ours early, Barb. It was here and gone before I could enjoy it. My roses started to bloom two months ahead of schedule. Now they're covered in black spot and aphids. Nature is such a saucy minx!ReplyDelete
Your poor roses! Tulips can take weathery punishment, but not roses.Delete
After such a long, cold winter, the least Nature could do is give us an extraordinary Spring. "Saucy minx," indeed!
Thunderstorms, baseball-size hail, tornadoes....Spring has hit Texas for sure. (And everything is green)ReplyDelete
Wow, I shouldn't complain! Although we did get a bit of hail last week, it wasn't that big.Delete
Hi Echo! Spring is almost over at my house. The heat and humidity will take over soon.Thank goodness for air conditioning!ReplyDelete
Lily Faye, you've been going to the beach lately, so you must be in the south somewhere. I love air conditioning, too. My long fur makes me too warm, sometimes. I also like to like in front of a fan.Delete
Arrrgh, I meant to type "like to lie" not "like to like." Clumsy paws!Delete
