Springy

Everything is in full bloom around here! Everything is also covered in a thick coat of yellow pollen.

Our snowball bush with its first snowball of the year.


The lilac plant with its first (ever!) bloom.


The cherry tree and dogwood tree that we planted last year are all bloomed out.


And the first rose of the season has appeared. The rose bushes are covered in buds, so we should have an abundance of roses over the next month.


Last weekend we went to the Carolina blue and white game and strolled through Coker Arboretum while we were on campus. The azaleas were gorgeous and taller than us!


The weather was perfect for the spring football game. There were about 30,000 people there - a great turnout to cheer on the team. We got to see the new red shirt freshman quarterback make his debut...looks like he's going to give TJ a run for his money this season. And surprise -- Carolina won! (It was an intra-team scrimmage.)

Your flowers are so pretty! LOVE. (Not the pollen though, my allergies would destroy me.)

I was at the Spring game for about 15 minutes - then had to leave to go capture my best friend's dog that dove through the screen porch door (I was dogsitting). GRRRR.
