Welcome to Spring in Kentucky
I love Spring! After a long, gray winter, the ground comes alive with daffodils of purple and gold.
The grass returns to deep green, the under layer of trees and shrubs begin to sprout; the forsythia in yellow.
Although many birds winter here, spring brings more and the songbirds fill the air with cheer.
A tufted titmouse snacks at our feeder. Meanwhile, a downy woodpecker hops around the back yard.
Overhead the ornamental fruit trees, pears and cherries, are the first to bloom displaying their lovely, white blossoms.
The warm sun and the cool rain of March opens the palette of nature and provides a hint of what is still to come in following months.
