A sign of spring, maybe..........

tweetypye(z8/sc AL)February 7, 2006

I know that winter seems to finally have arrived in Alabama, but I wanted to share a bit of "hope" that spring is just around the corner. :)

I have been watching a pair of eastern bluebirds, checking out the nesting boxes in my garden this morning. Could this possibly mean that spring is almost here?

I sure hope so. I'm ready for lots of green, and beautiful blooms.

Yep, I've got yellow bell forsythia amd daffodil blooms, quince and ornamental peach in bloom down the block. Saucer magnolias are showing color. The craziest thing is an alocasia leaf are pushing through the leaf mulch.

I'm jealous! My forsythia isn't doing anything, my daffodils are just beginning to peak above the earth, and there is not a sign of color anywhere in my yard. On the other hand, it is nice to finally feel like we are having winter (is it too late to wish for snow?)
