I’m here to tell you spring is coming, and I have the proof:
Nothing like a cold winter to make you appreciate little things like these snowdrops. I thought they didn’t bloom until March, but we had two days in the mid-seventies (F.) here last week, so that may have had something to do with it.
I misted the snowdrops with some water to make them more interesting. I also like the drops sparkling on the old autumn leaves.
When I zoomed in, I noticed this guy. I’m not so sure he appreciated the shower….
I love seeing these first harbingers of spring! My favorites are the daffodils with their bright yellow petals. I hope you get a few snaps of those soon. 🙂
Daffodil shots here. 🙂
These are so beautiful. I love to discover them and also crocuses with their wonderful colors. I suppose you have them as well. And yes, daffodils. We had a few warm days but now it is snowing again.
No crocuses yet, Caroline. It was very warm last week, but we’re supposed to get snow tonight. February is such a fickle month.
I’m envious … we still in the deep freeze up here. The snowdrops are so delicate it’s hard to believe they are the first to challenge old man winter!
Hope things thaw out soon, Cheryl.
Love the snowdrops especially with the contrast of the fall leaves.
Oh, it’s nice of you to comment when you’re on vacation, Jeanne! Hope you’re having a wonderful time.
I love to see the first signs of the changing weather! It is always so refreshing and just feels like life is breathed into the environment around you! I love love the second shot. Great details!
Now that I’ve been on the East Coast for three years, I really look forward to spring. When I was in California I started to take great weather for granted. Thanks!
I love the bee! I’m looking forward to spring up in NYC as well. I can’t wait to see the ornamental magnolias in bloom!
Magnolias are one of the best things about living back here. Gorgeous flowers with a wonderful scent.
