The Magnolia, which usually bloom around Mother's Day are dropping petals already. Is 2010 an aberration or will this be a trend? Only time will tell.
Living along the lakeshore, flowers bloom later and once they bloom, they usually last longer because of the cooler weather. Our Daffodils and tulips are just blossoming now and are still beautiful. The apples trees are just beginning to bud and we should see acres of blossoms in another week or so.
The roads around Hilton and Hamlin give great views of pink and white trees. It's a lovely sight!
I'll be out taking photographs when they are in full bloom. Check back soon!
