Will stop me from growing where I want to grow! 😀
🙂 Splendid perseverence!
Oh, so lovely! 😍. I love Snowdrops! 💖💖
Thank you, Trini!
the ultimate Positive statement
We can always trust that change will arrive. 🌸🌺🌼🌾
Yes, it does. The best thing ever! 🙂
Such crystal clear, appealing photos — especially those pussy willows against the blue!
Thank you, March. I love that contrast. 🙂
Ah! Good, you do have some signs of spring.
Yes, I am so relieved. Once I spy these two, I am a happy camper!
Even though there’s still some snow, gifts from nature find a way to grow!
Isn’t that the best miracle ever? 🙂
Ooh, signs of life! You’ll be catching us up soon! 😉
In a few more weeks!
It won’t be long!
True! Chilly today, but another week or two of warm temps ought to melt the rest of the snow. 🙂
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. 🙂
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!
So lovely Eliza.
Thank you, Sylvia. 🙂
Beautiful Snowdrops and PussyWillows ….
Thank you, Michael!
Ah, SPRING! Wonderful Eliza!
It’s starting if you know where to look! 😉
Brought me a sense of hope today, Eliza!
Oh, me, too. I know warm days are close by when I see these two. Glad to provide the lift. 🙂 Thanks, Kim.
Woo-hoo! We’re in the same boat as Judy—snow, snow, snow. Beautiful!
Thank you, Laurie. It is ripping cold out there today, however. Stay warm!
Willow buds are a wonderful sign of spring much loved by the bees when open.
Yes, willows and snowdrops both supply much needed pollen for hungry bees. Snow crocus are good, too.
Life asserts itself over all obstacles.
Thank heaven for that! 🙂
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.
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!
Great reminders of the coming of spring.
Yes, a much needed boost!
Sweet little reminders of the wonders to come with the sun.
Yes, indeed. I’m ready!
First thing when I saw the images was the Gordon Lightfoot song, “Pussywillows, Cattails” running through my mind. 😉
Thank you for bringing that to my attention, Bela. Very apropos, so I share it here in case any one wants to listen. https://youtu.be/SVqPEW2MwBs
Ooooh spring is coming:-)
At last! 🙂
Finally, snowdrops! So happy to see that spring has found you, Eliza ❤
Yes, it is Spring right next to the foundation. It’s as good a starting place as any. 😉
Right- start right where you stand, and work outwards from there!
You’ve got the signs!! Beautiful.
Yes, very exciting! 🙂 Thanks, Lisa.
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! ❤
Great to hear from you, Mary, on this early-spring day. Hope you enjoy your visit in ABQ, and your internet hiatus! 😉
No need for words Eliza, just lovely!
These little signs of spring surely do lift the spirits!
How I love spring, and you’ve defined it so well with this post 🙂
Wishing you a great one Eliza.
Thank you, Randall. Happy Spring to you as well!
Yay! What a sight for sore eyes 🙂
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.
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. 😦
Spring is peeking through – that’s something I like to see!
It is quite hopeful!
