It's Spring

Spring has finally sprung!  It's my favorite season and time of year.  I love how the flowers, trees, bushes, shrubs and grass start coming alive and filling the drab, dreary, dead landscape with life and color.  Spring means that cold weather is on it's way out.  It may take awhile to be completely gone, but old man winter is fading away.  This is how spring is looking around my yard.

I hope you're seeing signs of spring where you are.  

What, if anything, will you miss about winter?

I'm joining My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday


  1. Hello Annette,

    Don't you just love all the emerging color?

    I can smell those Hyacinths

  2. I can almost smell the flowers through the screen! Gorgeous!

  3. Your garden is beautiful - way ahead of us here in the Pacific Northwest. I have daffodils blooming and a few rhodys are just barely starting to show color. A couple more weeks! Had frost still this morning.
    I sat here thinking hard about what I would miss about winter and finally thought of something. In the winter I don't bother washing my car because it just gets messed up again right away from the rain. That is the ONLY thing I can think of - LOL!

  4. I love your photos! Especialy the second one!!
    I don't think there's a thing I'd miss about winter. It's Spring and it's glorious!!!

  5. I'm just a tiny bit envious because our Spring hasn't arrived yet.

  6. Your garden is just gorgeous - I'm so envious! The weather has made everything bloom late or not at all, so far - keeping fingers crossed. :O)

  7. What beautiful pics! I haven't seen hyacinths in a long time. Bet they smell great!

  8. Love your photos! You're a great photographer!!
    THanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog! :)

  9. What beauiful blooms! I find the flowers change how I feel as soon as I see them - knowing winter has run it's course.

  10. I'm not sure how you do it but your photos have a 3-D quality to them I felt like I could reach in a touch those pretty red bud in the first 2 photos. Have they come out with a 3-D camera now?

    Have to comment about the pink Hyacinths, the last time I saw and enjoyed the sweet fragrance of hyacinth was many years ago in California. My mother always grew them in her flowerbeds. Thanks for kindling a fond memory. :)

  11. Great photos! I especially love the red one, whatever that flower may be (my ignorance shows what a gardener I am!). Only little blades of green peaking out here and there and buds just now forming. We're in the mountains, though, and the end of April almost always features the biggest blizzard of the season, so it's best for the flowers and trees and such to stay tucked in for just a few weeks longer.

    Happy Spring!

  12. Hi Annette!

    such beautiful flowers...a few tentative signs of spring over here in Germany too - can't wait for our cherry tree to bloom :)

    p.s. I don't miss winter at all!

  13. Hyacinths. I must buy hyacinths. Thank you for the lovely reminder!
