And..... Spring Cometh

For all of those who live in Southern parts of the U.S., the
Northeast is much slower coming to life in the Spring.
This is a glimpse of our forthcoming flowers and buds.
It's still in the 30's and 40's here with an occasional 50.

Today was a gray gloomy day with misting rain coming down.
I headed outside to see what signs of Spring I could
find. My sedum has finally shown it's cute little face
that looks much like little green flowers hidden beneath
the leaves.

Day lilies are visible sprouting up from the ugly winter residue.

The daffodils were under the snow and when it went...
here they were standing up and getting ready for their blooms.

I have rows of them in front of the playhouse porch.

This tulip is coming up from under the landscape light....dah!

The buds on the lilac are plumping up..and one drop of
water from the rain is suspended there.My first 'chippy' sighting.. a little snow remains.

If I had to look at this all year round it would be depressing.

But I can look forward to green green grass and flowers...ahhhhhh
A Titmouse declares to the early morning.. It IS Spring. As I pan through the yard following my dog, Ben I can hear nothing but the chorus of Spring in the birds singing.

These early signs are spring are such a beautiful sight. Looking forward to watching as it all unfolds in your "neck of the woods".

Thanks Marsha. I promise even though you say 'beautiful' that the coming shots will be even more beauteous. The winter residue as I call it drives me crazy and looks ugly to me.

Isn't it wonderful to know spring really is coming...even though it seems more like winter in North Carolina!!! Hard to believe...isn't it? Thanks for sharing your early signs of spring with me!
