Spring 2015: Indiana Edition Spring is here!  It’s been very slow to become spring here in Indiana.  Virginia used to have about 4 months of winter and then we were off into spring weather.  It’s more like 6-8 months of winter here.  So when the spring flowers finally sprung, we were thrilled that the potential of warmer weather might come about along with it.  Most Indiana flowers are the same as what is found down in Indiana, each depending on where you live in the states the flowers just come out at different times.  Here are some of the flowers we have been watching grow around here in Indiana:

Spring 2015: Indiana Edition This is the same as the above photo but I have to tell you the truth, I have no idea what it is though. Any ideas? This was found on the grounds of the University of Notre Dame.

University of Notre Dame spring University of Notre Dame is so amazingly gorgeous! It is almost sad the majority of the students leave at this time after semester has been completed. Highly recommended for a visit during this time.

UND spring Seriously, UND is gorgeous this time of year. One can walk around the lakes on campus and just reunite with nature.

UND signs UND campus has these wonderful religious signs to teach and remind those going on the walk. Unfortunately there is not a definition on each. This is a catholic university if you weren’t aware.

UND statues Statues are also around for praying.

Cancer awareness on UND spring flowers The campus also has a section, near the onsite bookstore, a cancer awareness area. There are benches, tulips and a tree that survivors or those that know those affected by cancer in some way to tie a ribbon. It’s a gorgeous area that is a constant reminder we have to find a cure.
