Spring scenes

Spring has finally sprung here in Central Indiana, and I mean it this time. Practically overnight, the thin green veil became a curtain. It's rained nearly every day for the past two weeks, which sadly means that some of the early Spring flowers are gone now, such as the ones on our crabapple tree that we were only able to enjoy for a week:

The sun goes down later and later each day: 8:44PM tonight. In late April, I was sitting out on the back porch enjoying the pleasant weather, and caught site of this colorful sunset. I had to go find the camera:

The leaves have popped out on the trees now, so this view will not be possible again until approximately November. Glad I was able to capture it for you!
