We’ve had a long, cold winter the likes of which people hadn’t seen in years. Only last week, we had another snow storm, complete with freezing rain and ice pellets.

Finally, finally, we see signs of Spring. It’s such a beautiful sight.

You might not be able to see those little sprouts but I was so excited to see them. Signs of nicer weather and warm days and sunshine.


Aren’t they exciting?


I have no idea what they are. Could be tulips, could be a tree, could be a weed. I just knowΒ that looking at them gives me hope.IMG_0097

This is Tubby, the tree. He didn’t come out of our long winter unscathed and we’re trying to set him ‘right’ with that pole and tying him straight. Poor little guy.

Hope comes in with Spring. πŸ™‚

  1. Spring is my favorite time of year. New life is created and the old is rejuvenated. I not sure about your baby trees Taylor but lets hope they have survived one of the longest winters in awhile. πŸ™‚

  2. They look like tulip leaves πŸ™‚ Seeing signs of spring is one of the best parts of the year! Everything getting green and blossoming is so optimistic πŸ˜€

  3. I’m guessing tulips for your flowers. But that’s the fun of springtime, isn’t it? Thanks for sharing all the signs of new life popping up in your yard. Makes me want to go plant something. πŸ™‚
