Hoppity Hop

that's how my inner gardener is going through life at the mo, feeling like a very happy bunny. Why? Well, look around you, grasshopper, and tell me what you see.
Here, in the Lowlands, Spring most definitely has sprung, we could even say that it has suddenly gone all kablooye after that looooong, cold winter we had.
Bang!!!!

Spring has not only exploded here but it is blossoming as well.
And how!
Flowers galore!
Golden bells (Forsythia) tinkling in the breeze,
beautiful spring flowers as far as the eye can see. No wonder yours truly is in happy bunny mode.
And I am not the only one who's merrily hopping along: TADAAA Er, Kadootje, you are blocking the view.
I was, of course, referring to our friend the Easter Bunny who is also doing the hoppy thing, and so are they
and this one too.
Happy Easter !

Oh my goodness! What are those beautiful trees? You know, the ones loaded white whit blooms. And the pinks. The yellow as well. I dont think I've seen them before.
Sigh! My heart is truly hopping now :)

Sorry, I meant 'with white blooms" See what those pictures have done to me?

What beautiful trees with the blossoms in front! It makes me want to climb into the photo and walk round the garden!

Hi Yolanda, WOW! Everything is so alive and in bloom there! I'm still waiting... patiently... not so patiently... Have a happy (or hoppy!) Easter!

Treesparrow said...

Wow.. I think your spring is a little ahead of mine. But we are not trailing too far behind. Aren't cats just so GOOD at getting in the way of things.... happy easter to you...

Amazing what a difference a few weeks have made - there are flowers everywhere.
True to form I'm having trouble recalling the bleak days of winter. I think I have seasonal amnesia.No wonder I'm surprised by the same changes each year!

Grace Peterson said...

Yours has got to be one of the most uplifting posts I've seen yet. The baby lambs are so cute. The blooms and landscapes are magnificent. It's been a long, chilly winter for so many of us. Thanks for brightening my day!

It's always lovely to see tree blossom, but a pity that it only lasts for such a short time.
Have a good Easter! xx

I am lost in admiration for the beautiful trees in bloom. That cat disguised as a bunny doesn't look any too happy. . .

Kerri said...

Those flowering trees would make me hop with delight too, Yolanda, not to mention all the other wonderful blooms..and the little lambs...and the kitties..
Spring certainly is popping in your part of the world!
I'm happy to report that we have glorious sunshine today and the crocuses have their pretty petals open once more, plus a few daffs are struggling to open. So I'm hopping for joy with you :)
Happy Easter dear Yolanda Elizabet!

Help! Zombies are attacking my house - they've already trampled my sunflowers and I don't know what to do. Anybody have advice on a good zombie-zapping plant?

Schöne Ostern!

Dee/reddirtramblings said...

So very beautiful. Spring has definitely sprung @ Bliss. My goodness, those trees. We got some bloom this year, but not to that extent. Thank you for sharing and Happy Easter.~~Dee

Glo said...

Spring has exploded is right! What gorgeous photos! You are in your element now...

Hmmm, wonder if it was the Easter bunny who chomped of all the heads of my tulips? Do you know if rabbits like them, or do you think it was the deer? I'm going to dig up the bulbs and put them in a container away from creatures. Should I wait until the blooming season is over for tulips (although mine won't be blooming) or can I dig them up now?

em said...

How on earth did you get that cat to wear an Easter bonnett! Photoshop perhaps?
