Thursday 13 v. 54 - The Spring One

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
13 Pictures of Spring
Take a walk with me around my neighborhood to see all the signs of spring. And then forget that it has been less than spring-like the past week.







The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It's easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Wow! Those are pretty. We're expecting more snow this weekend. They had a guy from the botanic gardens telling us how to protect our plants. Looks like I'll have to go shake my trees if I don't want broken branches.

Rose said...

Lovely photos Carmen!

Very nice pictures!
Very springy! My dad planted forsythia and we had a white dogwood in our yard when we lived in PA. The white clover I had not seen in a long time. I remember making necklaces and bracelets out of that.
I take it you allergic to the pear?
Terrific Thursday Thirteen!
My TT is posted.
Have a wonderful day!
Happy TT'ing!

Those are beautiful, and definitely very springy. Hope the weather begins to match them soon.

Happy TT.

Jane said...

It was fun to just sit back and enjoy pretty pictures. Unfortunately, many of my blooms have been damaged by the cold blast and snow. My tulips have been brought to their knees!

Darla said...

Oooh, beautiful flowers! It's been very springlike here, and, amazingly, it's Spring Break! I swear, that's the first time THAT has happened.

Zeus said...

You always find the best gadgets. I love the frame for the slideshow, and let's not forget those pictures are beautiful. Too bad flowers bring bees and wasps...ick! ;)

Happy Spring!

Sparky Duck said...

great, I was hoping you would have known what the pink thing was. Great pics and great neigborhood

Melli said...

WOW! You have a LOT of Spring happening down south there! I'm impressed...

Dragonheart said...

Lovely photos! :) Spring is such a wonderful time of year. Such beautiful flowers and gorgeous colours! Your new house looks great. :)

Thanks for visiting. :)

Lazy Daisy said...

It's a beautiful day in your neighborhood (Oops...slipped into my Mr. Roger's mode!) Your new neighborhood is gorgeous. Let's hear it for warm weather. Come by and see all the "deep thoughts" you are making me come up with by telling me I'm a thinking blogger...(oh the pressure! ha!)

Uisce said...

::sigh:: I think it will never be spring here. I'll bet the forsythia just skip out on this year! :(

Goofy Girl said...

Such beautiful flowers around you!! :) Very nice!

Christine said...

Gorgeous Spring photos Carmen. Tulips are my favorite flower. I've never seen Dogwood flowers or Forscythia. You live in a very beautiful neighborhood.

Happy Thursday!

Julia said...

I love looking at all the spring flowers! It turn out great. Thanks for the nice spring walk with you *grin*

Happy T 13 - Have a nice day!

she said...

I'm so jealous. Beautiful flowers in your yard and neighbourhood and nothing spring-like the be found anywhere near here ;(

Janet said...

ahhhh, what beautiful flowers! I think those ones you asked about might be variegated tulips...not sure tho!

Christina said...

Soooo pretty! Seeing photos like these makes me kind of sad that I'm back in FL where there isn't really any change in seasons. Thanks for sharing these with us!

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

Beautiful! You mean there is Spring somewhere?

Haley-O said...

Wow...at least it's spring SOMEWHERE in the world.... there's no sign of it here in gray Toronto!

Katherine said...

Lovely! I love phlox and I'm jealous you have a dogwood within view!

Virginia said...

Okay. Totally unfair. You live in a state where there's actual seasons! The biggest thrill we get down in Houston is on our way out of the city and spotting the occasional bluebonnet!

Hmmph! :)

Here from TT.

Mama Duck said...

That was a very uplifting beautiful sideshow! Mahalo! And Happy TT!

K T Cat said...

I love the slide show gadget almost as much as the gorgeous photos. What a really clever way of doing a TT!

Alyssa Goodnight said...

Just commented on your publishing blog before I realized it's a little out of date... :)

The pictures are beautiful!!
Happy T13!

KarenW said...

Beautiful! I love pink dogwoods. Is the other pink tree a tulip tree?

Irish Church Lady :) said...

Love Phlox and Dogwood. I don't know what the yellow and red ones are but they sure are pretty!

Thanks for visiting my silly Itty Bitty TT and playing along. Sorry you haven't been sleeping well.

Are you all sorted out with your neighbour problems now? Could that be weighing on your mind?

Donna said...

All our flowers and blooms got frozen.

kristarella said...

Pretty! The slide idea is a nice tough too! Saves having to insert all the picture code in your post :) It felt very much like spring.
