Spring has Sprung!

Yesterday was a great day for being outside. I took Fergus for a jaunt to look for interesting subjects and critters. Didn't find much, but we both enjoyed the 70 degree weather.
This is my friend Mr. Sparrow, watching me suspiciously as I took this picture of the buds on our Bradford Pear tree late Thursday evening.

 This was the next day. Once spring finally showed up, it has been moving fast.
Bradford Pear blossoms.

Some of the lillies at Luthey Botanical Gardens. I can't express how fragrant this room was. I could have spent the day on that bench...
...or enjoyed a nice lunch at this table.

I'm looking forward to going again when the outside flowers are in bloom.
