Spring Has Sprung

And that means warmer weather, flowers and baseball!  The cold weather seems like it is finally on the way out and flowers are blooming everywhere!  It is so refreshing to walk down the street and see blossoming trees that I didn't even realize were there before.  Last week I was able to get out of the house a couple of days and enjoy the gorgeous weather.  
Mitch and I had his firm tickets to the Mets game last Tuesday evening, but the game got rained out and rescheduled for Thursday at noon.  Since Mitch couldn't make the noon game, Catalina and I got to enjoy the sunshine and incredible seats (four rows back from the dugout!). 

Then on Friday I met a friend at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.  It was really overcast and not really the best temperature to walk around the gardens; however, cherry blossoms and daffodils were blooming all over the place.  Mitch and I will definitely be taking a trip back this summer; it is such a wonderful escape in the middle of the hustle and bustle of city life.

I love flowers! I wish I actually could grow them myself, but it's just as nice to see all the beautiful flowers other people can grow!

P.S. I'm having a royal wedding week giveaway! Check it out and win a cute tea cup necklace in honor of the big day!
