Pretty in Pink

The view from our living room window...

is spectacular right now, thanks to our hoppa crab tree.

It's hard to believe it was only a little over a month ago, during our April 1st storm...

...that it looked like this!!!

Even the bird lamp birdies are enjoying the view!

It's hard to believe that when we bought these trees back in 1982 (we planted two in our yard)...

... they were so small ...

... that they both fit ...

...  into the back of my VW bug convertible (with the top down, of course).

Spring was a long time in coming, but it was well worth the wait!!

I'm linking up to My Romantic Home's Show & Tell Friday. Be sure to stop by and see what everyone is sharing this week!
Also, I'm sorry I haven't been able to visit a lot of you lately. My dad has been in the hospital/nursing home/rehab for the past two weeks and I'm spending a lot of time there. Hopefully, if all goes well, he will be coming home some time next week and I'll have more time to get around and visit. Till then, I hope you are all enjoying spring wherever you are!!

Oh, this is a beautiful post! Your window sill is a lovely spot and your blooms outside - oh, my goodness. Then your kitty just tops it all off!
Be a sweetie,

Hi Donna, what a difference a month makes at this time of year, huh? That's a spectacular view Baby has there. I can practically hear the birds singing!!!

Wishing your Dad a speedy recovery. Hope he's feeling much better.

Such a beautiful view, it almost looks fake! But, I know it's not! I would LOVE to have that area to sit and write! Thanks for sharing.

What a difference a month makes! Thank goodness! They say it will be a bit warmer next week. One can only hope. My double cherry is blooming and it's absolutely gorgeous!

I hope your dad is doing okay. Us ladies will miss you tomorrow.

I've been taking lots of photos of how my landscape is changing, what seems like, day to day. It's amazing.

Love the view from your living room window.
