Spring is in the air – Echoes of my Neighborhood

 

spring sunshine quote

Although Spring had officially begun a long time back, it has just started to get a little warmer here.

The trees and flowers have started blooming where I stay and although the sight cannot be compared to the beautiful cherry blossoms in many places, it brings a ray of hope that  – sunny days are here to stay! *yay for spring*

Here is a little sneak peak of my world –

What is the weather like where you stay? Are you guys also enjoying the sunny weather?

XOXO

    Such beautiful photos. I love when all the trees are blossoming in pink and white. It is just a shame that it got so cold again over here!

        At least we had sunshine today. But instead of the usual at least 60 – 70° we had only 21/22 in the morning…. brrrr….. we even had snow on Monday… Not funny, Spring! Did you hear that???

    Beautiful pics. It has been all over the map here in Los Angeles lately. Last week it was 90 degrees and sunny. This week still sunny but ranging from 65-70 degrees every day.

    Lovely photos. Finally the tress here in my area began blooming. For a minute I was beginning to think it would happen, it’s been so cold but with the exception of today the past few days were very nice.

    Such beautiful blossoms and lovely photos of them. Trees in the UK haven’t really started to bloom properly yet. We seem to be having a late start this year. We’ve had the lovely daffodils and tulips and other pretty flowers, like bluebells. Unfortunately, our trees don’t seem to want to wake up until the weather improves. 🙂

    Very fun and beautiful post! Such gorgeous flowers where you live. I must say I am a tiny bit jealous! It has been so nice weather wise hear in Arizona for a couple months, now. The palo verde trees are blooming which produces a pretty yellow flower. Thanks for sharing with us!

    This is the part of spring I like. When the trees are just blooming so they have colorful blooms like pink, red and white, etc. Some of the trees are already losing their colorful blooms which makes me sad. But I’ll enjoy it while it lasts! Beautiful photos! Xoxo

          Oh I had been to Cochin itself. My dad was posted there for his work at that time for a couple of years. We always used to visit him and had the best time! Greenery everywhere unlike in Mumbai lol 😋
