~Avalanche yawning after a nap amongst
the daffodil's..
~Springtime is the land awakening.
The March winds are the morning yawn.
~Lewis Grizzard

~Awake thou wintery earth~
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, (An Easter Hymn)

~Moss, lilies, thyme, & roses....all showing
hint's of spring!

~Avalanche basking in the sunlight in the
bay window enjoying a beautiful March day
looking out into the garden and thinking
awww....Spring is near !

Hi Cat, your garden is just awakening and mine is ready for a good prune, but I hate doing it whilst there is still some colour and lush green growth *!*

Lovely cat! :)
Your collages are so beautiful!
I can see that we have pretty much the same climate. Your Columbines below looks just like mine, the buds and the flowers.
The pictures from the snow in my previous post are not from our area. We were visiting the hills in Hardanger. ;)
Wishing you a HAPPY EASTER! :)

Great shots!
Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter, where I finished my Greek Islands 2006 adventure with a post on Cretan Towns! Since it's Easter time, also made a post with some lousy pictures on Easter in Prague (1997) at Revival 90s.
Enjoy your Easter Eggs and have a great long weekend!
