Naw - I'm not stoppin... I hope you are not old enough to remember that (I wawnt tek me cawt off - I'm not stoppin)

Tennessee! I am impressed, only getting as far as Corfu, but the island is at least green all the year round. (boring eh?) I miss the snow,and the snowdrops, the Autumn colours, the occasional days of Summer sun, the fields of barley, the bluebell woods, of devon..... 3 sugars and almost no milk please.

Ah, spring! Trees thick with flowers and pollen. Bees busy about their business!

Stunning!!! I will be away for a while so I will have to catch up in a couple of weeks, and see Tennessee in full bloom! As for the Coyote! What a great privilege to have such a wild animal venture into your world like that. And don't worry about the cat, With a name like that he will be able to fend for himself. All the best for now, Kipling.

blossoming trees is one of the things I love MOST about spring. Ours aren't close to blooming yet here up north, but I am definitely waiting!!

DJan said...

Wow! What gorgeous trees. I have the same thing happening here in the PNW, everything is blooming, but they are different here than you are showing me there in Tennessee!

L. D. Burgus said...

They are all so beautiful. Our bloomers will be out in a couple of weeks. Red bud will be the first to bloom.

Tennessee is absolutely beautiful in the Spring (and during the other seasons as well!).

Denise said...

I can see Tennessee is doing its own version of the happy dance. Fabulous photos Jo.

Barbara Anne said...

What wonderful photos!

Virginia is lovely now, too, but although our Bradford pears, forsythia, and crabapple are mostly leaves now, the dogwoods, red buds, azaleas, and apple trees are blooming!

I'm a Tennessee native and appreciate the beauty there!

Maddie Grigg said...

Oh, that's lovely. The May is coming out here in Dorset. Everything is looking so fresh and full of promise.

Kay said...

I absolutely love the purple trees.

Lisa said...

Love your photos. Iowa has come out of the deep freeze too and spring has 'officially' started according to the kids. There is always a HUGE pile of snow at a local strip mall and as long as it remains, spring hasn't started. Today, spring has started. ALL of the snow is gone. Love your pics, the cats and mother nature's beauty.

Andora said...

Wow those are great photos...and beautiful in bloom...I really love Tennessee in the spring...

Carol said...

Gorgeous.
I am very patiently waiting for our baby Redbud to bloom. Maybe next year. All the others in our neighborhood look great.
