Well, it didn't snow today like they said it would. It's just rainy. Kind of springy I guess...I just checked the weather for the next few days and I see high temps in the fifties finally! Good signs, baby!!!

The first day of spring, and the sun is out in bright force.
It is a good sign, I'm utterly pleased now!! Smile

pfffft

still snowing here

definitely weird for this late in March - not that there's snow, but there's so much of it, and it's sticking around

We have rain--which is dismal but constructive. Snow ramparts are melting and the car is cleaner than its been for a long, long time.

Happy Vernal Equinox to all.

The first chipmunk of the year became a courting gift. An amorous red tailed hawk just offered his mate a tasty tidbit and she accepted.

You are in much warmer spot than I am Francis. I won't be seeing daffy's and tulips for another 3+ weeks. Saw my first blooming snow drop just yesterday. Today - snow in the morning, now ice and rain. It's OK, I have the fire going and I'm making soup and bread for dinner- followed by a good book I want to finish before gardening season starts.

....but I'm surprised that tulips will grow in such soil. It looks
quite dry and clay-like.

Oooooohhhhhh Francis,

Wonderful picture. I love the wall and steps of the backdrop as well as the tulips and dafs. <sigh> Does it really look like that somewhere right now?

Quite cold and dismal today. Soup and bread kind of day here too.

I saw RUNNING WATER today. RUNNING WATER. OUTSIDE.

Course, it's just the snow from the past three days melting in the sweltering 40-degree heat (that's about 4 degrees to you followers of Dr. Celsius).

J-B I don't have tulips in the yard (they're on the table)
but outside I have many blooming flowers.

Those look like species tulips - they come from the steppes of Mongolia. Growing in France is a treat for them.

ehBeth - I didn't recognize you without your dress.

(edited because I got confused - no more hot chocolate for me)

Beautiful, satt_fs. Thanks for posting that. I'm going to print it out along with Francis' tulips and put it up next to my computer.

Anyone seeing any Dogwoods in bloom? they are supposed to be in bloom this week, climaxing Easter Sunday and then dropping their petals. I don't even have buds! And, I'm in the south!

(My cherry tree doesn't look like the pic above, either. what's wrong???

"My cherry tree doesn't look like the pic above, either."

The blossoms are probably those of a tree of peach (Prunus persica -- of the rose family).

thank you, satt_fs.

I live in the woods, but I have a partly sunny bed on the south side of the house. I have some large dicentra there that were gorgeous last year. I finally had to cut them back because they were blocking out everything else. They're my farorite spring show, hmmmmm maybe not my favorite. I get pretty excited when the trilliums are in bloom.
