Signs of Spring!

Good Morning everyone!  Our temperatures are going to be in the 70's today!  It seems long coming, but I think Spring is finally here!  I went for a walk yesterday and found lots of signs of spring.  Do you want to come with me to see what I saw? If you do, follow me . . .

The first sign of Spring that I saw was as I was walking down our driveway: greens are starting to peak through the rocks:

 A little way down our road, I saw crocuses in bloom:

As I came upon the fields, vibrant greens were evident around bare trees:

 If you look closely, you can even see green starting to show around the barn and pond, which is down our road a little more:

The fields have been tilled and something green is starting to grow in even rows:

 Tiny little blue flowers are showing their smiling faces in the fields:

 Ahh . . . my favorite Spring flowers, daffodils:
 
Hyacinths:


And all kinds of beautiful Spring flowers:

As you can see, this home is decorated beautifully for Easter:

And, as I headed toward home, I was struck by how pretty the view is.  
And all of the greens growing in the fields:

And when I arrived home, I saw the most famous sign of Spring: a robin!  
He was singing to me from the neighbors' tree.  Can you see him?

I love Winter, but I love the changing seasons more.  I can't wait to see what Mother Nature has in store for us in the next few months.  Spring is here!!!!

And lastly, as I promised yesterday, here is a layout that I made using Anne's picture from Easter Sunday.  (Once again, I used papers from the Echo Park "So Happy Together" collection.)



Thank you all for taking the time to come visit me today.  Enjoy the coming Spring!!!!!
