Why Yes, It IS Spring!

I know there are parts of the country that are still chilly, drizzly, and even snowy. I'm awfully sorry for you, because I am head-over-heels in love with Spring here!

This is the dorm where I live:
Outside of this dorm we have a rose garden. Students are expected and encouraged to gather bouquets of roses. It's not QUITE in full bloom, but I anticipate it will be in the next few days. I will be sure to post an update photograph. Right now you can see the flowers...
But they're best if you get up close and really stick your nose in them. Mind the thorns!
This fuzzy thing is one cool-lookin' flower. They grow on a MASSIVE bush right outside the main entrance to my dorm.
The lilacs are working on blooming, and they already smell incredible. Once they are full blossomed, walking into my dorm is truly an olfactory sensation to be savoured.

Not to be overlooked when one is discussing oflactory sensations: the orange trees. The smell of the blossoms is to die for.

Not to mention they are really pretty...

I didn't even discover these pretty little flowers until I started taking pictures of lots of the flora on campus to share with you all. Aren't they sweet?

I wish I could have made this entry scratch-and-sniff for you, but let me assure you: Life on this campus smells incredible these days!
