Spring is Speeding By

Spring has come to upstate New York.  And now, it seems to be speeding by.

It seems like only yesterday that crocuses were in bloom.  They are long gone.

Pink marked the start of tree blooming season in Binghamton.
A weeping tree by the Broome County Courthouse.
Then things started to get serious.  The cherry blossoms were cut down by a hard freeze last year.  Not so this year.
White blooms.
And now blooming, early rhododendrons.

As far as bulbs, the tulips are out.

You'll see no yellow flowers here.  There's a reason for that. Keep coming back this week, and you'll see why.

Tomorrow, back to the Blogging from A to Z Challenge.


  1. So fresh and lovely!! Btw, why is it called a weeping tree?

  2. It has been cold and rainy in Nashville all weekend, which sucks!!! But then it's supposed to be 80 degrees by Tuesday. I guess this is the winter we didn't have?!

  3. Spring has certainly added color to the landscape. Beautiful blossoms.

  4. Enjoy spring. We're getting summer weather already. It's too soon.
