An Outing Amongst the Blossoms

It has been Spring Break for us, but there has been little "Spring" involved because of the cold and snow. I wanted desperately to spend some of our break (after all--because we home school any break is a break for me, too) to get out and take some photos in the Spring blossoms--something I can't easily do most days. The snow ALMOST deterred me. It did deter most of my children. One was still willing. Here are a few of them.




And, as much as I love the color I decided to try a black and white. I liked it. What do you think?

LOVE the color ones best. The b&w one is cool, too but seems really COLD to me! Maybe because it's so dang cold here right now!

I'm ready for SPRING!!!
