Spring must be here!

I think spring is finally here!  There are several signs all around us.

Bradford pears in the neighbor's yard.

One of our peach trees in full bloom!

Tulips are almost ready to bloom.

The temperature is cooperating, too, with some nice, warm days! 

There were some casualties of the cold weather, though.

The consecutive nights of below freezing temperatures last week "bit" this peach tree.

The rosemary will have to be replaced.

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. Good morning, Nellie!
    What a delightful way to start my Day! It looks so "springy" by you!

    I saw a few hints of Spring yesterday in the garden but nothing as dramatic, yet:)

    So sorry bout the Rosemary plant, I lost mine a few years ago. I actually used some of the dead branches as flavoring in the grill. I'm finally growing a new one this year.

    Thank you so much for sharing this burst of Spring this morning, Nellie. Just what we needed!

  2. Yes, there have been some casualties of the cold snap that came after the first warm spell, but I hope you didn't get too much damage that can't be repaired. We had some vicious storms in the wee hours of the morning here, but no damage, except to my sleep schedule, so a nap might be in my plans for today! Enjoy your day, Sister!

  3. Nellie, You are ahead of us there in Tenn. We are just getting the tiny buds on our trees here. I hope there's no wind or rain once they bloom...I like to enjoy their beauty. Hope you have a great day, xoxo,Susie

  4. you are ahead of us! bradford pears are so pretty in bloom. i am just waiting for a storm to hit today.

  5. Your blooms are wonderful. I'm tired of dirty snow banks and can't wait to see signs of spring. I eager to retire Josie's snow pants and snow boots.

  6. I looked out and all my tulips are BLOOMED! Blooming that is to say! What a pleasure!!!

  7. I had to cut so much back to the ground, but thankfully the majority is coming back. It's just going to take a while.

  8. Oh- What gorgeous signs of Spring. Do you know we still have snow here yet? Crazy, huh? xo Diana

  9. You have beautiful signs of spring Nellie. Nothing like that here yet but I am waiting impatiently!

  10. Yes, it sure looks like spring and how pretty it is.

  11. Oh wow these are some beautiful shots! It's not looking like that here yet but hopefully we're just a week or two behind you :)
