Photo Friday: signs of spring

Roll the car windows down, dust off those flip-flops, take whatever allergy medications allow you to go outdoors without dissolving into a sneezing-wheezing mess... it's springtime, kiddies! After a fairly brutal winter, we've skipped a few short weeks ahead and it's time to celebrate Mother Nature instead of cursing her.

Here are a few quick before & after signs of spring around my 'hood:

pear tree, winter
the pear tree in our backyard, circa mid-Feb during snOMG

same pear tree this week, white for a totally different reason!

cherry tree in our front yard, mid-snowpocalypse

same tree, much happier this week!

I have no idea what this tree is...

...but it sports the most gorgeous blossoms this time of year

joy! the hostas I thought I killed last year have actually returned

the mint in the front planter always comes back
yeah, the mint in the front planter always comes back, but it's still nice to see it


A totally different sort of wildlife comes out this time of year, too. Witness:

woolly winter creature

mild springtime urban deckdwellers

BTW, with the exception of that last shot, which was taken by one of my brothers during a recent family gathering in Philly, all of these photos were captured with my iPhone. It definitely doesn't replace my trusty SLR, but I'm pretty psyched with the quality of the snaps.

The other two classic signs of springtime in Washington are, of course, the Cherry Blossoms and the WaPo Peeps Show Diorama contest. How are you celebrating spring?


For more great travel photos, be sure to visit Delicious Baby's Photo Friday.

The tree with the gorgeous pink and white blossoms is the Tulip Tree.
