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

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.

RE: A sign of spring, maybe..........

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?)

RE: A sign of spring, maybe..........

If it is gonna be this cold, it dang sure BETTER snow - and kill the bugs! I too have daffodils blooming - etc., etc. Course, I live just down the road from TweetyPye - so we "share" the same weather....

RE: A sign of spring, maybe..........

Yep, daffs blooming here also, camillias are gorgeous, japanese magnolia showing some color, flowering quince, some of my forsythias blooming, and my "thrift" has been blooming since mid January.
Rosey, I saw on the weather that we are supposed to have rain mixed with snow this Saturday!!! Waaaaaaa....I hate cold weather!!!!!!!
