We've had a lot of rainy weather and gray skies lately.
While it may be spring on the calendar, the weather hasn't been cooperating.
Yesterday, I donned my rubber raincoat and went on my walk in spite of the downpour.
I was rewarded by the beauty of the trees in our neighborhood beginning to bloom.
Today I returned to a vacant lot and foraged a handful of branches so I could enjoy them in my home
and photograph them.
Aren't they so lovely?
Even if it is gray and rainy, here's the proof that spring really is here!
