Happy Spring and Easter

Grape Hyacinth


At a little after eleven this morning I got my camera and bundled up, it was 35 degrees F, and went looking for signs of Spring.  The above is what I found.  These flowers are on the protected south side of the house.  On the north side of the house, there is still a little snow on the ground.  Away from the protection of the house, the tulips aren't even poking their leaves out yet.  Smart tulips.  You can click on the pictures to biggify, but the pictures are probably a bit blurry that way.  There was a breeze blowing and the flowers were nodding.


To all of you who celebrate it, I wish a Happy and Blessed Easter.  To those of you who don't, I wish a very Happy Spring, even if it doesn't look much like it in much of the country.  I am seeing a few signs of Spring coming at last and I will try to get out during the day and photograph some of them.  If I find anything good, I will add the photos to this post later.

Happy Easter! I'm glad you're finding something good in the snow and cold that looks like spring is getting closer to you.

We have a lot of things leaving out, but it has turned cold again and is raining.

The Easter Bunny did come to my house. I'm so excited.

Easter hugs...G
