I don't hate winter in Minnesota. I like some snow and I like to ski and snowboard. And I chose to live here so to complain about winter is kinda pointless.
What I don't like is how long it takes for Spring to come. Here it is the end of April and we're still getting some questionable weather. Nice one day, rainy, cloudy and cold the next five.
But one big sign of spring is when these trees bloom. I used to think they were lilac trees, but I'm not sure what they are because someone told me they're not lilacs.
Either way, the smell great, they look beautiful and they're only here for about 2 weeks. I went out in the yard to take some pictures tonight.
