Finding Spring

Hyacinths March 16

Today was so warm that I pulled the lawn mower out of the shed, checked my gloves for spiders, and spent several hours working outside. As I scraped away layers of leaves, twigs, and mud, I found traces of spring in every corner of the yard.

Irises March 16

Hydrangea March 16

Wax Myrtle March 16

Pear Tree March 16

After finishing in the yard, I opened the windows, took off my shoes, and invited spring into the house.

    Your photos have brought spring to me – ours is just barely appearing – crocuses are out, but the daffodils are really hesitant. I did see a robin busily preparing her nest today. I love the last picture (the window treatment is really nice, by the way). My kitties have been soaking up the sun in every window they can!

    Love the flowers….I’m so jealous! We just got another couple of centimetres of snow. Spring is nowhere in sight! At least the Red-winged Blackbirds are back, though!
