Stirring

Surely we are getting closer....
The Robins are in abundance, busily pulling the earthworms from the moist soil, the nests are getting feathered, the Pussy Willow buds are awaking.
Daffodils are waving their sleepy heads in the noon day sun.
Not long now.

I'm looking forward to all this. I planted daffodils for the first time last fall, but I don't expect to see them before almost the first of May here.

Wow, so beautiful! Spring has sprung in your neck of the woods. :-)

Your Spring is much closer than ours. Although we had a couple of warm days, it is still cold and rainy here. It will be a few weeks before we see any sign of life in our garden. Your daffodils are beautiful! They are my husband's favorite flower so I plant lots of them.

You have the gaffs daffs already and look at all that green. Your post is my two month precursor for my sprink in a couple of months. I always enjoy seeing your spring flowers.

No daffodils out here yet Jo, but I did enjoy looking at yours. We have a few brave crocuses, but with the promise of a Siberian week to come, I'm not too hopeful yet.

Oh, you're way ahead of us in Connecticut.

Jo, Love the daffodils. Today I saw two robins in the backyard and it just made my heart sing. I love them as a sign of spring. Hope you are safe from flooding. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Judging by the weather forecast the worst of our winter is yet to come. I’m hibernating.

Jo,as I sat on my back porch today, I thought I heard quite a lot of cheeping coming from a birdhouse. I thought surely not yet, as there aren't any bugs about to feed them.

Oh my gosh, Jo.... you are well into spring down your way. I pruned on Sunday and saw one daylily (ONE!) peeking out from under the soil. That's it. Everything else has that "dead look" to it yet. It will be another month before our landscape is as beautiful as yours. But oh it's worth the wait, isn't it? Lovingly~ Andrea xxx
