    Neither rain, nor hail, nor sleet, nor snow
    Will stop me from growing where I want to grow! πŸ˜€

    the ultimate Positive statement

  4. We can always trust that change will arrive. 🌸🌺🌼🌾

  5. March Picker says:

    Such crystal clear, appealing photos — especially those pussy willows against the blue!

  6. Christina says:

    Ah! Good, you do have some signs of spring.

  7. Alice Pratt says:

    Even though there’s still some snow, gifts from nature find a way to grow!

  8. Cathy says:

    Ooh, signs of life! You’ll be catching us up soon! πŸ˜‰

    It won’t be long!

  10. Thank you for sharing because there isn’t one square inch of ground that still isn’t covered with a lot of the white stuff. πŸ™‚

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Same here. That is why I plant snowdrops next to the foundation. These are in a little corner next to the porch that gets full sun, so warms up earliest. I look to that spot every March with great hope and anticipation!

  11. Beautiful Snowdrops and PussyWillows ….

  12. Kathy Sturr says:

    Ah, SPRING! Wonderful Eliza!

  13. Brought me a sense of hope today, Eliza!

  14. Laurie Graves says:

    Woo-hoo! We’re in the same boat as Judy—snow, snow, snow. Beautiful!

  15. Brian Skeys says:

    Willow buds are a wonderful sign of spring much loved by the bees when open.

  16. Kris P says:

    Life asserts itself over all obstacles.

  17. Brenda says:

    Our pussy willows are magnificent, but the snowdrops are still snow-covered. In fact, we had a totally unexpected mini-blizzard this morning that dumped another few inches. I was in town when it started snowing and got held up for about half an hour driving home because a tractor trailer jack-knifed on the road ahead of me. We were in a whiteout, making for some white-knucklish driving. I made it home and the sun is out now but the winds are screaming and whipping the new snow into a frenzy. Yow.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Wow, glad you made it back safely. Nature is giving us lots of surprises this year.
      Years ago, I planted snowdrops in places that I noticed melted first, these are next to the foundation and front porch. I was thrilled to note they emerged in this recent warm spell. Closed tightly today, however!

  18. rabirius says:

    Great reminders of the coming of spring.

  19. dorannrule says:

    Sweet little reminders of the wonders to come with the sun.

  20. First thing when I saw the images was the Gordon Lightfoot song, “Pussywillows, Cattails” running through my mind. πŸ˜‰

  21. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Ooooh spring is coming:-)

  22. Finally, snowdrops! So happy to see that spring has found you, Eliza ❀

  23. arlingwoman says:

    You’ve got the signs!! Beautiful.

  24. Walking My Path: Mindful Wanderings in Nature says:

    One crocus is up so far. Hopefully others will pop up soon. These are beautiful shots, Eliza.
    I came to Albuquerque, for a couple of days, and here all the beautiful blooming fruit trees and spring flowers, like lilacs. So beautiful!
    Our internet is down at home until April 6th. One tech for all of NM and part of TX. They don’t get out our way much. Nice to see you! ❀

  25. No need for words Eliza, just lovely!

  26. Dalo 2013 says:

    How I love spring, and you’ve defined it so well with this post πŸ™‚
    Wishing you a great one Eliza.

  27. bittster says:

    Yay! What a sight for sore eyes πŸ™‚

  28. Inga says:

    I’m crazy about those tough little Snowdrops. Sadly the squirrels around my area always find them. Apparently those tiny bulbs are very tasty! So I’ll stick with Muscari and Daffodils for the most part, but oh how sweet are those nodding white blooms. So early and so welcome! Thanks for sharing.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Inga. They are delightful to see after a long winter. I’m glad my squirrels leave mine alone. The tulips seem to devoured by voles, of which we have many. 😦

  29. Spring is peeking through – that’s something I like to see!
