We got a number of stunning responses to our call for photos of spring in bloom here in NEJC. But, as Levar Burton told us so many time, you don’t have to take my word for it…

Rep. Barbara Bollier sent in some beautiful shots of colorful flowers dotting the lawns in her neighborhood, including this one:

Rachel Best sent along this great pic of a magnolia tree at its peak:

And Prairie Village Code Enforcement Officer Marcia Gradinger was able to capture this breathtaking shot of the trees outside city hall using her cell phone:

But flowers aren’t the only sign of the changing of the season around these parts. Michele Griffith captured this shot of a wily fox sneaking a drink from her backyard birdbath:

Thanks to everyone for sharing their shots. (And if you’ve got a shot you’d like to share, email it to us and we’ll add it to this post).
