Had to buy these pussy willows at Whole Foods–they were really cheap! So soft too.
Snowdrops, called the heralds of spring.
Witch hazel lit by the sun.
Hope spring is turning up wherever you are….
So THAT’S witch hazel! I see it around my neighborhood from time to time and wasn’t sure.
The sun backlighting makes it look beautiful. They haven’t been blooming here just yet so I’ll look to your photos to enjoy what is to come.
Yes! I had heard of it for years and never knew what it looked like. Would love to plant one in our yard, as it blooms early and brightens the winter landscape.
Gorgeous as always! I don’t think I have ever seen Witch Hazel!
It’s new to me too.
I am not sure if we have witch hazel. The snowdrops are out here as well but I haven’t seen any pussy willow yet but maybe just because I didn’t pass any. The daffodils and crocuses are everywhere now. It is still chilly but it gets a little bit warmer every day. the light in the witch hazel photo is very nice.
Thanks, Caroline. No daffodils here, but they are trying to come up.
Love the snowdrops!
I’m a fan now too.
BIG SIGH!!! Heading back to the (still) frozen north on Sunday. Carole, your wonderful images will be the only promise of spring I’ll see for a few more weeks. Please keep ‘em coming!
If you hadn’t just spent time in sunny Florida, I might feel a little sorry for you, Cheryl! But I will do my best to keep spring alive.
Sigh. Each picture is so gorgeous.
Thank you! I do love spring.
