the sky was full of fluffy white clouds and the blue was crisp and holding on to the cold winds of winter. and as i drove around, there were still people in sweaters, but i noticed more and more have crept outside to see the sudden burst of colors and the green grasses peaking out.
then i met my sister and a friend for alice and dinner. dinner was delish and fun, even though screaming babies and cigarette smoke tended to make some of the time challenging. but it was a good evening.
sunday broke as we sprang forward....the skies were overcast but with the promise of spring here, i decided to drive to birmingham to see if the beautiful cherries were blooming. alas, they were not. it seems that birmingham is a bit behind montgomery (amazing what an average) five degree temperature difference can make. but it does. cherries will bloom in approximately two weeks (if temperatures stay consistent right now.) good thing i carried the macro lens....even if i did all hand held. here are some more of my favorites from the weekend.
