Spring Greening

Finally. . . the Daffodils are Peeking

Finally. . . the Daffodils are Peeking from the Earth

I can finally report that Spring is making an appearance in Wisconsin. We had temperatures reach the mid-50s both days this weekend and the earth is thawing. When I walked through the yard this evening to examine the different gardens, I was happy to see the daffodils near the front door showing a bit of green.

    These is nothing like “spring green” poking through.

    My daffodils are finally pushing through with some green and other yards around in the neighborhood have daffodils blooming. Always nice to see a bit of green! 🙂

    Oh! Thanks so much for sharing that little peek of green — it’s a salve for the winter-crusted soul, as you know! No, green for us in Maine yet (we actually had a snow shower yesterday afternoon!), but it’s coming soon, I know it… Happy spring!

    Yeah, funny how Spring knows when it’s the first official weekend. Even if the following week it retreats for a while, that first weekend is often so springlike.

    Coldish here—high 40s—after hitting the low 70s and high 60s on Sat and Sun.

    Oh how divine..I love this! So much contrast between brown and green. The symbolism is perfect…new life reaching up..from the sleeping earth.
    I think your title and comment was great too!

    Thank you for sharing your world, Bo. 🙂

    We are getting those little shoots too, but now the forecast is for more snow.

    Those green’s are such an amazing color! I can’t wait till everything is green again!

  11. Spring is certainly in the air.

    Things are popping up all over.

    Blooms are starting to come out and it is time to get outside ourselves.

    I actually saw some daffodil blooms out this past week.

    making progress. Ski season is dead. Long live fishing season.
