Spring Forward

Yep, spring forward, and it is happening around Gulf Shores.  One day nadda, seems like almost over night POP!  Spotted during our drive over to Daphne on Friday were tulip magolias that were already dropping a few of their precious flowers, crab apples in FULL bloom and I even saw a few daffodils (no photos of the daffodils, but, they were as yellow as yellow can be!)


Flowering crab tree, near Robertsdale Alabama.


Above, near Daphne Alabama, tulip magnoia,
not even the best speciman we saw, but, WOW!

Carol, these photos are lovely. And I'm glad to see you are not Cranky! Please send spring up to Massachusetts.

Thanks Barbara, I just LOVE tulip magnolias. Cranky is being quiet, for now. Glad to send her packing! LOL I'll gladly send spring to you. Hasn't it been unbelieveable this winter??

We're still waiting for the trees to change here in Virginia, but at least I have crocuses, miniature irises, and lots of bird song to make me happy right now. Love those magnolia blossoms!
