Signs of Spring







I got quite excited this morning, waking up to sunshine and a rise in temperature I was able to throw open all the windows (trouble is I can see how dirty they are), I collected the daily newspapers without needing to wear a coat and boots (bliss). In the week I have been away the crocuses have started to bloom and believe it or not the osteopernum have never stopped blooming throughout the winter. Mmmm as I'm writing this it's clouded over but the sun was lovely while it lasted.

you.have.flowers!! i am so in awe. i loved that england had flowers so much earlier than we did. i remember that from when were living there in 98. my daffs started to come up when we had that warm weather in january and are now flat out covered in slushy snow.
you don't want to see how dull and dreary that looks now...
the robins are back and the birds are twittering, and the sun is now just about up when my alarm goes off in the morning! i can shower w/o the light on even!! ;)
lol, i am so easily pleased!

elena jane the weather has been so topsy turvey this winter that the plants don't know what they're supposed to be doing

Lovely -

We woke up to cold temps this morning and it snowed. Of course, it didn't stick, but still. My poor little crocus.

oh, what lovely pictures! Although I've sun in my little corner of the world, I brushed 4 inches of snow off my van this morning, it's 30 degrees F, and dropping, and we're due for temps in the teens here in New England.

My flowers are under a bank of snow--no crocuses here :( But I tell you--I'll be SO excited when it's MAY and the flowers start springing up. Yes, May--I live in the Mountains...*sighs*

Peg it's easy to forget that others have much harsher winters than we do, we do tend to get a lot of wind and rain in March and April so I may well have been a bit premature with my spring pictures. However the flowers did look so pretty I just couldn't resist.

Just beautiful.

I saw this from the vortex of a Wisconsin blizzard.

mimi I'm shivering just thinking about a blizzard that must be a day to stay indoors cosy and warm so I won't tell you we have the sun out today I think temps here are around mid 60's F so not very warm
