Loving the Colors of Spring

I really like these two colors together, although the picture doesn't do them justice. The purple flowers are from our nursery. They are from one of our rhododendrons...I can't remember the name of the plant.
The dogwood was a gift....get this, from the UPS delivery person who saw them way up the mountain (hill) from where we live. He gave them to my husband who brought them in and was astounded at the color..they are a greenish-yellow and so gorgeous. The tree that these came from was blooming right near all of the "normal" colored dogwoods. I just wish the green showed up better in the picture.
An amusing aside, when I taught kindergarten we were talking about what our "fathers did". One of my favorite responses was, "Oh, he works for PUS."

Beautiful! I can't wait for spring to truly arrive here. We are finally starting to get leaves (the second time around). If you need a good laugh, check out the link to my daughter's blog on mine.There's no end to what kids won't do, but ya gotta love em!
