  1. Very pretty and a great start to the year. I am guessing a lot of plants will be out of schedule as the year progresses.

  3. The mild temperatures are waking the plants early this year. I love how they peak up through the decaying leaves!

  4. So pretty - I'm really enjoying the spring photos from all of you south of me - we have a little ways to go yet before we see signs of life

  6. Nice to see signs of spring, Julie. I haven't seen any yet but perhaps I should look more closely. Christina

  7. Wonderful when you see the first signs of spring isn't it, they hold out such hope for whatever is to come. Hope your weather stays mild, then all their friends will join them!

  11. Aw, gorgeous! So in about three weeks they should be blooming here, too. (Just an estimate, but your photos sure are encouraging!)

    1. Beth,
      Yes, it was really nice to see them... though today they are under an inch of snow from the 25 degrees :) They are waiting for the sunshine to come to the rescue. Tomorrow it is supposed to be 40F.
