Signs of Spring...


Spring is...

blossoming crocuses...

daffodils displaying their greenery...


open windows with kitty's breathing in the fresh air....
a 'Welcome Home' sign for migratory birds...

trees budding...
perennials flourishing....
driving with the roof-top down...

Yeah, I know spring is coming. Yay! I noticed about a week ago tiny buds forming on some trees behind out house and I thought, "Oh, wow, a sign of life returning to the earth!" And, the weather has been incredibly spring-like. I know we're going to get a huge let down at some point, but for now I'm enjoying it.

Love the crocuses...I had one once, but I'm not sure what happened to it. My hydrangeas are beginning to show signs of life. Love the Barbie car--I think I need one in my size!

Pat Tillett said...

Beautiful photos! It's almost here...

Teresa Evangeline said...

I'm ready. Thanks for the reminders. :) Have a good weekend, Tracy!

Kittie Howard said...

Ahhhh, so nice! Thank you! I'd love to hop into that little buggy and go for a spin!

Catherine said...

Look at your spring Tracy!!! Oh color me the shade of green ~ green with envy ~ green with wanting spring! White white white ~ snow snow snow! That is all I see.

Well... I shall live vicariously through your photos for now... thank you... ;)

I was noticing the daffodils poking their heads out this morning on my walk into work. Makes knowing spring is around the corner more real.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Trac, Are you having THAT many signs of spring there already??? We have had warm weather for about a week now--and some of our spring flowers are poking out of the ground.. BUT--no flowers yet!!!!!

I did see someone driving with the top down on their convertible... SO--I guess it isn't too far away... I cannot wait!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

June said...

Tracy these signs must be cheering you up while recouping from the crud you've been dealing with lately. Oh it will be such a long time before my bulbs will be popping through, as they are still under feet of snow.
I loved your son's responses to the questions. So awesome!
hugs to you...

Ginny said...

I want spring to come even more now!!! I always love to see the crocus coming up! What a very cool surprise the Barbie car was!

KathyA said...

I'm ready!! We're about 2 weeks behind you...However, may be expecting snow on Monday...:(

Sweet Old Vintage said...

the snow is almost completely gone in time for a forecast of 3 inches this sun.... I am looking forward to spring... We just had some friends return from Florida.. said they didin't enjoy it at long for the second straight year... Tom always says you hae to be someplace and there's no place like home and I agree.

Linda Reeder said...

Ah. Little golden crocuses! Your spring is a bit ahead of ours.

Dawn said...

Oh love the pictures. And I would like a car like that;);)
Happy weekend to you!

Patty Ann said...

Oh, it is so beautiful. I wish that we had beautiful pictures just like that. I actually wish that we had weather that would allow me to take pictures like that! Oh well, spring will come one of these days.

Nancy@A Rural Journal said...

Throw open the windows! It must be nice and warm there, Tracy. Only got to about 50 here today and felt rather chilly. I had the wood stove going.

Glad that Angel Kitty received some fresh air today. And the crocus is lovely. :)

I love crocuses but I have to admire them from afar though there are cooler spots on the island. Your kitty looks cute in the window and I enjoyed the nests and buds- nice reflections~

Simple "T" said...

WOW, I love crocus, YOUR photo is awesome and the budding tree. We too are seeing a bit of spring and hope it last.

Hope your weekend is a good one gal and you can get out to enjoy this nice weather.

Good Sunday Morning Tracy! That kitteh's fuzz face! I want to snuggle it! And those crocus faces, I want to kiss them :) I have a Beetle, it's silver though and no Drop Top! But I love my Bug. I love Spring, it's all good from now until the HUMIDITY hits.

LV said...

Spring has not gotten that close for us. I will be very happy to see little sprouts coming up and flowers blooming again. Yours are very nice. At least you made it seemed like spring was here.

Lin said...

Your crocuses are up??? Uh oh. I planted snowdrops and I haven't seen them yet--maybe it is still too early here. I can't wait to see if they come up. They'd better--they were a buggar to put in!
