OOOH! It's Spring!

I don't have too much time to be excited about this because spring doesn't last long around here (though it did creep in earlier than usual). The sunny days and cool nights are one of my favorite parts of the season. But I also LOVE that just about everything is in bloom. Here's what happened to my crepe myrtle in one week:

I'd like to say that my tree puts out those soft pink flowers all on its own, but the truth is, I have to feed it, water it and tell it how pretty it is. The one year I did not do that, I didn't have a single flower.

I'm enjoying this pretty site as long as I can. It won't be long before the summer sun and a the slightest breeze leave a trail of pink flowers around my neighborhood. I can't believe my HOA doesn't send me nastygrams about that!
