First Sign of Spring


There is hope!  
Last week I saw the first flower on our evergreen pear and it looks as though there are more to come!


Today I went outside and found more blossoms bursting forth!  I love it.


The groundhog had better not ruin everything!


I am sending this over to Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.  It is Outdoor Wednesday!

  1. I am happy someone is seeing the early signs of spring. We are covered in ice and snow and probably still be even in the spring.

    Thanks for your comment. Although is was in the 70's over the weekend, we now have 2-3 inches of ice and 9 degrees tonight plus the wind is blowing. And I'm in the Dallas area.

  11. Beautiful pictures. Yes we are in Florida, but it's been pretty brutal here. We even had pipes burst when it went down to 27 degrees! But I am looking forward to warmer days ahead.
