Beau­ti­ful flow­ers

You need not go very far to see the beau­ti­ful bloom­ing trees and flow­ers nearby. Just driv­ing down the street, it is al­most im­pos­si­ble not to take a peek at the spring trees that are in full bloom. The cherry blos­soms are at full bloom in my area, Croom, as they make it easy to en­joy the sight of such beauty with­out hav­ing to travel to Wash­ing­ton, D.C. Of course, there are not as many trees in any nearby area but the beauty is still flow­ers that are pop­ping up through the green grass. Peo­ple are get­ting their yards in shape– re­mov­ing bro­ken branches, rak­ing fallen leaves and cutting the grass. The beauty of spring also means the growth of grass and weeds which means it is get­ting to be the time to pre­pare for the spring yard work.
