I DECLARE, IT DO BE SPRING!

“LAWDY, LAWDY,” Miss Eva used to say, “I declare, it do be spring! I seed a crocus this mawning!” And sho’ nuff, I would go out in the yard to the “first crocus” spot, and there would be a spot of sunshine smilin’ up at me.DSC_0931

The daffodils are up and budding, if the weather holds, they will be showing color next week.DSC_0935

Normally we have camellias in bloom all winter, but this year it has been a bit slow. These camellias are usually finished by now.DSC_0936DSC_0938

The mice are out and about… and Spook caught himself some fast food. Or maybe it was not fast enough food. Obviously not fast enough…DSC_0933

The pansies have enjoyed a nice rain followed by some nice sunshine.DSC_0934

LAWDY, LAWDY,” as your Miss Eva says, it do be spring. You have outdid yourself with this post! Totally delightful your pictures are. Enlarging the last one just literally took me away. You have such a good eye. Thanks for sharing with us 'out there'.

Loved this post. It is spring here, too. Just ask my sneezing nose. We do have some daffodils blooming.

Lots of small lawn wildflowers already blooming, but not so for the daffodils or anything else (darn). But today I did spot my first few robins, so it's a coming

My daffodils are just popping out of the ground now. I was surprised to see them so early especially with this cold weather we have been having.

Well good lord I'm sure glad it showed up somewhere. Here in the Middle Of Nowhere there's not a sign of it yet. :)

Where did all your snow go. I still have some. Spring will not be here for two weeks when the half load restriction goes on the gravel roads.
