I know that for me it was when the Crocuses poked their heads up and out, even if there was snow still on the ground. That was the greatest sign. I know the rest of the flowers would soon be showing their heads at the proper moments. Thanks, Bill LikeLike Reply Bill, First the crocuses and then the forsythia…. I look forward to that, but we aren’t there yet. Alas. This year they are predicting that everything will bloom together because it was cold so late. Allergies will be bad. I look forward to it, though. 🙂 Take care, Brenda LikeLike Reply Such a wonderful sight. LikeLike Reply Yes, gorgeous to my winter-weary eyes. 🙂 LikeLike Reply How strange that you are longing for green grass to appear. It’s the same over here (or is that down under here) in southern Australia where the grass is beginning to green up after the long summer dry . I hope you aren’t in the part of the USA that is being hit by the spring blizzards – they look very cold LikeLike Reply They warned us snow was coming, but all we got was a bitter, howling wind. No shoveling! Yeah!! It’s still really cold today. LikeLike Reply This is so perfect in its simplicity of color and message, too. LikeLike Reply I love when the shoots come up. Gives me such joy. I always get so tired of winter. 🙂 LikeLike Reply I adore fairies… I’m always asking them to sprinkle some fairy dust my way… LikeLike Reply No doubt they have been! So many bad things were detoured away, I feel sure. You haven’t seen any bear-trolls, have you? See? 🙂 LikeLike Reply The spring has started? Does it usually come during this time of the year? 🙂 LikeLike Reply Yes, the official first day of spring was March 20, but weather-wise, it can come anytime in March or April. 🙂 The bulbs and birds are the real geniuses. They always know. LikeLike Reply Nice 🙂 We are having horrible, hot summer here; for us March-April-May = bad 😀 LikeLike Reply We have plenty of cool air here this morning! Stay healthy! LikeLike Reply I love this! LikeLike Reply Thanks! LikeLike Reply yay, there is hope! there is no stopping it now! LikeLike Reply Woo-hoo, bring it on! LikeLike Reply Spring has definitely sprung, thank you fairies! Lovely cheery post 😀 x LikeLike Reply I hope I identified my shoots correctly. 😉 LikeLike Reply You did! 😉 x LikeLike Reply I have a stumper today, I think it must be a tulip, but I’m not sure. It’s tightly furled, red on the ouside of the shoot and green on the inside. It’s circular, coming to a high point at the back, and curving symmetrically down toward either side. Hosta can come up like that, too, though, and it’s not my yard, so I have no idea what it looks like the rest of the year… I’ll have to wait and see. 🙂 LikeLike Reply It does sound like a tulip to me too. Have you got a photo of it? If not let me know what it is when it comes up! 🙂 x LikeLike Reply Not uploaded yet, but soon. I could email you a version if you point me to where to find your email. 🙂 Knowing what it is would help me write a poem for it. 🙂 LikeLike Sure, if you go to my gravatar profile (click on my picture) my email is there 🙂 I’m intrigued to see it! x LikeLike Great, that’s awfully nice of you! It’s winging its way to you now. LikeLike Just replied! 🙂 x LikeLike Thanks, I’ll look at email next. 🙂 LikeLike SMILE LikeLike Reply Hug!

I was so happy to see those little green shoots, three separate walks in three separate directions were needed to find them all. 🙂 And we are supposed to get snow tonight! Augh!! LikeLike Reply Be nice if there were a bit more springing here… LikeLike Reply I had to look hard for the signs. And they will probably be covered by snow again tonight. These are bulbs well used to it, though. LikeLike Reply Love Spring! I see some of the grass is trying to green here. (KS) LikeLike Reply We have snow due tonight, but surely it will melt off and we’ll have green grass before long… 🙂 LikeLike Reply I hope it melts fast for you. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Didn’t show up after all, just a cold howling wind. That seems minor after the winter we’ve had. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Thank Heaven…I for one am soooooooooo ready for Spring to Spring 🙂 ( or is that for Spring to Sprung????) 🙂 LikeLike Reply I’m hung on the sprung. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Ah.. the beauty of nature is making a return 🙂 LikeLike Reply Yeah!
