It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like . . .


Dare I say it?  But the first tulip really makes it seem rather Spring-ish.
Buds are swelling on the yellow-twig dogwood;  willows are greening,
 forsythia and quince are abloom . . . 

And a few shy hyacinths are joining the early blooming daffodils.

The mountains must be looking quite lovely with everything blooming and greening up so early! Wish I was there.

It's definitely in the air!

We are far, far from that kind of activity: last night it snowed. But just a bit.
Good to know, though, that the tulips and hyacinths remember what to do at the right time, isn't it?

Thank you for reminding us of the prizes at the end of a winter. Beautiful.

It's rather early to have so much going on, lovely though it is. I envy you being able to have tulips. They are one of the favorite foods of the deer so given our deer population, not something I can grow unless I grow them in a cage!

Those first stirrings of spring are always so thrilling. Super captures, Vicki! My favourite is the last because of the blue flowers. Wish I were there to enjoy their heady perfume.

Hurrah!
I am waiting for the day when I can say that I've survived another winter!

Can't wait! We had 68F here yesterday, but it's in the 20's tonight. Back in the 50's tomorrow! Spring is knocking at the door, and if were up to me it would be opened wide!

Greening willows are my absolute favourite sight. There is a line of them on a riverbank that I see when I take the train to Leeds and they always lift my heart.
