Connecticut Spring

The ground, which was tinder dry, has finally received a good soaking. The trees instantly responded with a gossamer film of green. It lifts the spirit to see this rebirth after a long Maine winter, I think it won't be long before I see the first blossoms on our pear and apple trees. In the meantime...I will offer a few more images from Connecticut. And lilacs...always my favorite!

  1. Hello Carol:
    How wonderful to see everything springing into life after such a prolonged dry spell. Lilac is a particular favourite of ours too and, at the moment, great bunches are on offer for sale in our local market. The scent is heavenly.

  2. Hello Jane and Lance ~ Strolling through an outdoor market with the scent of lilacs in the air must surely be heaven on earth!

  3. Hi Carol-missed your posts-I've really missed so many bloggers! Cant stay away this long again! Lilacs soon here in middle Maine!! Happy Spring!! Beautiful flower pics-so very ready for flowers!!
    Fondly, Rain

  4. Hi Rain! Thank you! You have been away for a long time and I have missed all the activities on the farm. Spring is on its way and there are big fat buds on our apple and pear trees...the lilacs have a way to go. I hate to hurry this time since we have waited so long.
