Spring is Here!



It's happening: everything is budding and eager to bust out of its cocoon. We're all encouraged.









Sit down, stay. The woodland is changing before our very own eyes.

Pinks and yellows, settle in!
Red, stop littering!
White! Where are you?

Who put the purple adirondacks in the green of Oregon?

It must be Spring around here.

I'm sitting down waiting for a cuppa!

Lovely photos. I really love your garden.

Nuts in May

Helen said...

Well now .... I think you may have to 'step over the mountain' and take a look for Spring here! NOT!

Fire Byrd said...

Today has been wall to wall sunshine here. We are not as far forward with our plants, but it is all just around the corner.
Lovely pics, love the Magnolia.

Oh, I'm so happy for you! The sun is shining brightly here in PA today, but the snow is lingering! Sigh! We'll be joining you soon on that adirondack chair, HOPEFULLY!!

Velva said...

I am also excited about Spring! I can see that Spring is happening where you are now-YEAH!
I never thought living in Florida, I would say...I am looking forward to warmer weather.

What a lovely atmosphere and beautiful colors... We are still in winter here; it's cold and it snowed yesterday. Thanks for sharing your Spring with us!

You and I are on the same wavelength :).

Natalie said...

Fantastic to see the little buds.

We are waiting for the lovely cooler weather to come over here. Our summer has been very hot and humid this year....quite stifling.

We've still got quite a bit of snow cover here. It's FINally melting off the drive, though, so I can get out and walk. Yay! I can't believe you actually have blooms already!

Tabor said...

Lucky you. My daffodils and ornamental onions are just peaking out of the ground.

Beautiful! I'm encouraging spring here too. We don't have anything budding at my house yet, everything is brown & looks dead. I hope things will bloom and I have not lost all my garden. My bottle brush looks terrible & we are wondering if it will recover; it was so beautiful and the birds love it so.
All morning I worked outside, burning brush, cleaning the patio, re-potting some things. More work as the week goes on. Enjoy!

Hurray! Yay for the sun and its gifts of warmth! Who couldn't respond?

Awesome! It looks like you're about a month ahead of us here in northwest Georgia.

janis said...

So lovely! Yes... we too are getting sings of spring. Puts a song in my heart!

Eva Gallant said...

I haven't seen any of those signs here yet. Although it was sunny and close to 60 degrees today. I would like to think that spring has arrived, but it's so much earlier than typical here in Maine, that I don't quite dare to believe it! Lovely photos...especially those two adirondack chairs.

It was so long in coming and then all of a sudden, it was here. I almost feel like I missed something.

Jennifer said...

I love your purple adirondack chairs, but I am jealous - we won't have trees budding for 2 more months!

Hilary said...

So lovely. It's going to take a while around here. I'll enjoy your spring until then. :)

Shadow said...

oh goodie!

Reasons said...

Oh yes!! I can feel it coming soon here too. Enjoy.

√ Abraham said...

I am hoping it will get a bit warmer as the doctor told me this morning to begin walking for exercise. It is nice here and most of the snow is gone and should disappear by tomorrow.

NitWit1 said...

Ah Yes. It is reluctantly beginning to show its garments here.

I checked the forsynthia and believe they will burst out in yellow, maybe this week.

Today may be 70! PERFECT.

Beautiful pictures :o)

You are further along into Springtime than we are!

lakeviewer said...

Hi Folks, thanks for stopping by. This Monday morning we are back to dreary rainy day. Spring is so delicate, and will be for a long time. Only my peas, broccoli and chard are doing well in the soil. Everything else is hiding.

Hope your Spring comes along soon.
Thanks for stopping by!

Janna Qualman said...

I would love some adirondacks here. And I love that spring is so close!

jason evans said...

Amen. I'm ready for some serious warmth.

Gigi said...

So very glad you shared these pictures - I sooooo need to know that spring is on the way - cause it's not even giving us any hints yet!

Delwyn said...

Hi Rosaria

Happy days

Happy spring time!

A magical much loved time of year.

Yes, it seems to have happened here also - overnight. Had to visit the greenhouse today. Get my tomato plants for yet another try.
