Spring, at last

The days are warm.  Bird songs fill the air.  The trees are going rapidly from light green to dark green as the leaves explode.  Apricots are in full pink or white bloom everywhere. And we are having a thundershower as I type.

When we left for Kyiv Monday evening, there were a few blooms in Tanya's flower beds but today it seemed like everything burst into colour. Tulips, daffodils, early lilies, miniature hyacinths, miniature iris and bedding plants Tanya had purchased.

These are my photos.  Tanya's are much better and I will use them next time. Click to enlarge.
