Thanks so much, Art and Carol, for your thoughtful comments.

Carol - our Spring is all but over already! The trees blossomed and then turned all leafy green within a week! I got most of my Spring captures on my way to work because if I waited weekend-to-weekend the opportunity would have passed. I hope you have a longer burst of Springtime before the hot days of summer!

Beautiful tulip, Susan! They're hanging on fairly well around here, but the magnolia trees suffered a bit when we got an unexpected blast of cold right after they started blooming.
