Spring Everywhere © Lynn Wiles 2016
It was one gorgeous weekend. I planted pansies and took some photos of the flowers blooming in my yard. These are Hellebores, more abundant this year than ever before.

It’s always a special day when the first crocuses bloom in the garden and that day was yesterday.

Oak Confusion © Lynn Wiles 2015
Guess I’m not the only one confused by the season. This oak was sprouting new spring leaves, while the old leaves were browning and there are a lot of acorns on the ground. It’s going to be hotter than hot the next few days.

The ice is melting on some spots in the river. In other places it is frozen solid and in others it’s free flowing. The water birds are happier now.

Signs of Spring III © Lynn Wiles 2015
Every year around mid-March, I go to a certain place to see if the pussy willows are out and if they are, then I am convinced that spring is just around the corner. This time they were just starting to peek out of the buds and I couldn’t get close because there was so much snow between the path and the pussy willows. Spring will come.

Some trees are budding, some are not, and there are slightly more blue sky days.

First Signs of Spring © Lynn Wiles 2015
Yes, there is yet another blizzard raging outside, but yesterday I noticed two first signs of spring. This is my pussy willow tree starting to bud, as seen from a second floor window. The other sign, which I will not show you, is that my pets have started shedding like crazy all of a sudden. I finally had the opportunity to take my camera out yesterday for the first time in ages. Prepare for lots of ice formation photos in the upcoming days.
