Signs of Spring!

The first thing to bloom in my yard each year is this Flowering Quince, transferred years ago from my mom's garden in Oklahoma.


Miniature Daffodils (I wish they smelled as pretty as they look!




A brand new bud on my pear tree


Henbit is just a weed, but it even has it's own beauty, until it takes over my yard!

Dandelions, amazing how this changes . . .


to this!


You can visit the Brenda Photo Challenge Blog to see all of the other participants. Joy at Shuttershy is our host this month.


Flowers appear on the earth, the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. Song of Solomon 2:12


I love how God renews my life each day, in each situation, when I seek Him. Spring reflects that joy we feel in the renewal of life. I wish you many beautiful springtimes!

We had a split second of sun today... maybe spring is around the corner....
I love the photos and it does bring hope to see them even if there is no green showing. I think it was a great idea for a theme. It boosts the spirits. Your floral photos were beautiful!
