Spring has sprung!

These are signs that although it is still rather
chilly (32 a couple nights ago) spring has sprung.
The magnolia has bloomed.

The Japanese Maple has little buds. We are always
behind on spring because we live at just a little bit
of altitude and I am amazed at the difference it makes.

One precious little Trillium. They are a fav of mine.

The daffys in front are perked up and smiling.

And all these sweeties greet me at the door.

I got out in the yard today and cleared tree
debris and fir cones from around the hostas so
we can find them now. Only a few have their
little leaves up. Some of the ferns have many new
fronds. It is just a breath of fresh air to see these signs.

Now as I write the temp has gone down and
some darker clouds are coming in......but I know
that we have crossed the line into Spring!!

Happy Spring to you,

Love those hostas! and the Trillium too.

Things are starting to bloom a bit here too although we had a good laugh when the weather person on the news tonight referred to the cloudy skies as 'filtered sunshine.' That's a new one for me. My flower pots are standing by...

I'm so spoiled here in SoCal...stuff has been blooming here since January! Maybe we have all gotten in the habit of taking it for granted here instead of being excited for spring--hmm, a good lesson to enjoy each moment!

I love your daffodil/grape hyacinth combination. What a pretty greeting at your door. When we lived in Washington, we had a whole grove of trillium.
Glad spring has arrived for you Annette! Have a wonderful Easter.
