~Stirring of Life....

~It was one of those March days when the sun
shines hot, and the wind blows cold...
~Charles Dickens

~Avalanche enjoying the scents, sounds,
& sights of Spring!

~What are you looking at...? :)

~A stirring of Life....
Awake thou Wintery earth~
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn

Beautiful images celebrating Spring!

The forsythia hasn’t bloomed here yet but the bushes do have a yellow cast. A few warm days will do the trick but for now our nights remain frosty and the days very cool.

That kitten seems amazed ...
And lots of squirels around too.
Spring is certainly coming to town!

Beautiful series of photos. I'm waiting for the forsythia to bloom here. That is my signal for beginning spring pruning.

Aw yes, a stirring of life! Ahead of me, your forsythia rules! I think I recognize one of my squirrels visiting you ... he was sent with a special message (hugs from me to you.)

Goodness these are beautiful. I think I have as much snow on my blog as you do flowers. Thanks for the hint of hope!
