O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?

We've got a LONG way to go--I'm not daring to think of spring just yet. (although the shot is lovely)

We have not gotten winter at all yet..it has been almost fifty for days and days!! Lots of rain and no snow! I am afraid we are going to get tagged before spring!!
Beautiful picture!! Hugs, Sarah

We won't see this pretty sight in northern Indiana until the end of March or early April....sigh.
It IS so beautiful, and hopeful!

Ode to the West Wind - nice!

I walked around my yard a couple days ago and was quite surprised by how many things are already sprouting. I have a post about that, but it's set to post in the next couple weeks while I'm on vacation. Weeeee! :)

What a lovely, lovely, lovely image - and so filled with hope ... the promise of spring!

(I really need to order my garden seeds - and soon!)

Spring... only 2 months away! My winter aconite will be blooming soon, always gets me in the mood for spring.

It's been in the 40's here and I saw grass turning green, just barely, but it's there. But a big storm is on the way, so we're expecting more snow.

Yes indeed, what a lovely sight! I've just returned from visiting my Dad up in Oregon and saw similar peepings of green. Delightful image, and "Hope does spring eternal"! Deb

The perfect shot to accompany the quote.

My bulbs are starting to peak up also, still have a lot of winter to go tho!

Linda said...

Wow--bulbs already? I planted 250 this year, but haven't seen a peep. Is that a picture of winter aconite? I've never heard of it.

So, it's snowdrop? I just commented back to you at my blog, but in case you didn't see it, wanted to come here and congratulate you!! How cool!!
