I waited a long time to see some pink blossoms. Most of my friends in B.C. have already been talking about Cherry blossoms for over a month now. In fact they say their blossoms are already past their lifespan.
So finally, ours is starting to bloom, and I couldn't be happier.
I thought I'd probably never see blossoms here in Alberta.
Its always windy here, so it was hard getting some photos that weren't blowing in that wind.
At times the wind blows like crazy, and the air feels full of dust. Tumble weeds blow down the street and pile up on fences and against the sides of homes.
This tiny LadyBug was trying to gather some food and not get blown away into the next yard.
Lots of little buds that still are set to open.
These pink blossoms really signal the arrival of Spring for me. I was beginning the think it wasn't going to happen!
These colours won't be around for much longer and I have waited so long for them, that I am loving being out and seeing their fleeting beauty.
