Signs of Spring: Cherry Blossoms and Flowering Quince

This week has brought warm temperatures and sunny days.
Consequently, all the blossoms on the flowering trees and shrubs
have begun to emerge from their hiding places. 
One morning earlier this week, I passed by a house in my neighborhood
that has cherry trees planted in front. No blooms.
But when I drove past it later that day, blooms.
Spring had worked its magic.

And this afternoon, I noticed flowering quince 
blooming in front of a house not far from here.
I love the bright orangey-rose blossoms:

Could there be anything more lovely than flowers in spring?
