i like spring.

Photobucket
i can't get enough of these trees. i know i am not the only one. they are just so pretty. i hate that they only last for a few weeks. i wish they stuck around all year. i will probably never be a gardner/lawn carer type of person. so when this tree in our front yard blooms, i imagine that i feel pretty close to how a gardner must feel when their hardwork pays off. proud. honored. delighted....

yet, i didn't plant this tree, i don't own this duplex, and i have only lived here for a year. those are all just minor details though, right? i still think i am gonna take the credit for it. cool? oh and when the flowers fall off? not my fault. i'll blame it on sean. he does all the yard work.

oh, check out my dads cool scar.

he looks awesome. he looks like a bad A. i mean he has a freaking fu manchu moustache. well, almost.

he feels alright. getting better by the day.

he sounds like Batman.  it's awesome. i am secretly convinced that he is and got injured in combat. this whole "surgery" thing is  just a decoy/cover up. it's okay dad.
you can admit you are a super hero.

Yes, spring has finally sprung! Everytime I see a tree loaded with blossoms I can't help but smile :)

That is quite the scar.
Ooh, and that would be so cool if your dad really was Batman! ;)

he looks like a super hero to me!


... and I totally agree about how pretty everything is right now! I drive around with my neck craning everywhere but the road to take in the gloriousness of spring flowers and green grass! because soon it will all be dead and dry and yellow. bleh ;/

I LOVE spring and the blossoms on trees. One of my favorite smells is the blossoms on a certain tree. I can't want for the tree by my dad's house to bloom, because it has those blossoms. I hope your dad keeps getting better! Surgery is awful.

Sweet scar! Glad you were able to get pictures of the trees! They were at our apartments for like 3 weeks and everyday I said "I need to take pics before they fall off," and then one day I woke up and it had rained really hard and all the blossoms were gone:( I think I only got one shot.. enjoy all your hard work while it lasts! haha
