Friday Photos–Yes, Spring Is Coming!

The past few days here saw the lingering winter and the oncoming spring fighting for dominance.  Old Man Winter is determined not to leave, but Spring is just as determined to come. The weather the other day reminded me of boxers duking it out, as first the sun shone, then a brisk wind brought gray clouds over which dropped sleet on the grass. The wind blew, blue skies arrived, the sun shone and melted the sleet. Then the clouds came over again, and dropped some more snow/sleet. This cycle continued for most of the day.

But, spring is coming. The purple crocuses are almost finished blooming, with the white and the purple-and-white striped crocuses waiting for their turn, followed by the yellow ones in a few days. The daffodils are priming for their show, and the hyacinths are a couple inches out of the ground, getting ready to show off their colors and perfume the air with their fragrance.

In the meantime, here’s some photos from the past couple years to enjoy, while those of us in the Northern Hemisphere wait for this year’s spring to finally arrive.

Friday Photos–Spring Fever

The winter here has been relatively mild, so far. I think the warm temps the past couple days gave me a case of spring fever. I’m not the only one though; I noticed buds on the lilac bush and dogwood tree!

I know a lot of people are experiencing a much harsher winter than I am. Enjoy these pictures of spring flowers, taken last year.
