Aah yes - green shoots!

Thérèse said...

And these are promises that are kept! :-) It counts so much.

You need to have a sharp eye to see these, or maybe get down on your knees to search for them.

I have snowdrops, given by my wonderful neighbor, Ken, that are wanting to open soon. They are our harbingers of spring for sure. I just planted them last fall and these hardy souls have buds on them. Also have daffodil spears showing. I love the anticipation of spring. Spring in the Smokies is also my favorite time of year. Thanks for the reminder of our ever changing world.

Our daffodils are peaking through as well...ahh, the promise of spring:)

Vicki Lane said...

These were taken yesterday -- this morning there's a skift of snow on all those promises. No matter ... this too shall pass.

Those first shoots that often get frozen, somehow or another give us hope. Yay.

Suz said...

our promises are buried in another 6 inches of that dang blasted white stuff
but....I calm myself down...I am happy for your hope

We have promises also out here in Southern California. Have the cotton wood trees budding early due to the warm spell we had. Expecting some much needed rain today and tomorrow. Only a 50 % chance. Promises of rain full filled would do us so much good.

Yes, those little green shoots give us a hint of spring. Lots of joy in little things.

Oh yes! it's such a relief to see these little gems. We just know that Spring is on the way, don't we. So far I have one snowdrop flowering and several nearly ready, but apart from the wind and rain here, it hasn't been too bad this winter. A lot of the south west of the country is flooded but here in the south east we have been lucky.

Vicki, I did have a check up with my ophthalmologist last month, with a positive report, but still...am I seeing things in your fourth photo?

Please do let me know.

Frances, what are you seeing? It's a little concrete cherub, old and mossy...

I'd have to dig through 8 inches of white stuff to see if there are any promises here.. Oh, never mind, I know there isn't. Keep those promising pictures coming as a reminder that one of these days soon we will once again be able to sweep the wood off the floors, clean out the wood stoves and walk around the house barefoot again!

Natur simply is amazing, working on spring in the depth of winter.
