Spring has Sprung

Spring has sprung,

The grass is riz

I wonder where the birdies is? 

I took my camera with me on my morning walk with Molly yesterday.  These blossoms are a common sight for about a week every year, but they caught my eye because of the large knot in the tree trunk.  Molly was very good, sitting quietly without command when I absent-mindedly dropped her leash in order to play photographer.  As per usual for me, this looked better in b&w because of the leading lines of the young branches and the column of blossoms climbing from the lower left to the upper right, hopefully leading your eye through the image._DSC1726 Gallery
