Flowers all around Me

~Monochrome Monday on Wednesday is just below~

My ornamental pear is just about to come into full bloom...

These tulips in my front yard have taken their time but, as you can see, they'll be up soon...

These tulips outside the Barnes & Noble bookstore have come into full bloom.

*The flowers all around me
give me hope,
at least for now.

I was a bit disappointed because the tulip festival was early this year. Last year we went in May. But it's going on now and we don't have a free weekend in April to go.
