SPRING has arrived!!!


Peek-A-Boo!


 The snowdrops are pushing through
the carpet of leaves...


letting us know that if they can do this...


then it can be decreed...


that SPRING has arrived!


While Ron was using his macro lens
he didn't realize that he had
taken a very short (14 sec) video
of the snowdrop below.


Even though most of the video is unfocused
until you reach the end
the co-relation between 
spring and the snowdrops 
struggling to be present
seemed to work.


All I know is I'm super HAPPY 
and 
since I'm under 
Mr. MONSTER TREE
I'm digging in 
to find last year's
hidden surprises!

Psst: HAPPY EASTER for all those celebrating!
Control that chocolate and Easter egg consumption ~~~ NOT!

    1. Just last week, these white beauties were covered in a foot of snow ~~~ now ~~~ the sun shines and the flowers are so very happy.
      I will check in every knock and crevasse for my Easter treats ~~~ I pretty much know exactly all the good hiding places in my backyard.

      Happy Easter Jean and family!

    1. Galanthus or Schneeglocken are so pure and white which is fine if it isn't snowing. SO sorry to hear it's still wintry in your world.

      Happy Easter ~~~ eat plenty of anything that makes you happy!

  5. Another round of beautiful photos, and this time it's all about spring. YAY! We are finally there. I was in my backyard yesterday putting out the bird bath for my feathered friends, and looking around to see what's waking up in the garden. So far, the daffodils are in the lead, but some tulips are right behind them, along with some perennials. I am excited!! Don't you just love this time of year? It's so uplifting.
