How do I know that the spring is here?

After a particularly cold, snowy, and long winter, I am so happy to embrace spring. I thought it would never arrive. But it did, with all of its attributes - hot weather and bugs, rain showers and thunderstorms, spring blossoms and promises of summer not-to-far-around-the-corner. I love photographing all kinds of flowers, so today I wanted to share with all of you some of the photos that I got in the past week or so of the beautiful spring blooms around our house (inside and outside). I wish I would have gotten some photos of magnolias and wisteria,  but since we don't have either of those on our property, I didn't get around to it. But both of those are truly magnificent in color and splendor in the spring. After colorful New England fall, I think the blooming season in the spring is my second favorite season here.
