6. Wow!

We have some cherry trees blossoming and some daffodils up, but that little field of crocus really makes me smile!

12. The snow continues to fall

here in Montana and will for a while yet. Sigh

"No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn." -Hal Borland

I try to remember this quote during these dark days, my friends.

14. Yup...

I'm in Montana too but in a windy valley where there isn't all that much accumulation. If there is a bit of snow, we got about 14 inches about a week ago but it all blew away within a few days. We got 8 inches yesterday and it's half melted already.

I'm new to this area, much lower elevation here so much less winter than I am used to... the transition from approximately 7,000ft to just a tad over 5,000ft is more significant than many might imagine.

16. I didn't know we were neighbors!!

I like knowing who my fellow blue dots are in our big red state. It'll be a while before we see those crocuses poking through the grass. I haven't seen grass since Halloween!

17. We have had green stuff outsid most of the time

and today, it's warm and snow is melting, I was out brushing the horse and I saw green grass growing around the fence posts. It will be spring here sooner than much of the state as I'm in the southern band of the state.

9. Beautiful

A humble request - daffodils next. They are the happiest flower - and seem to shout to the skies, "Spring is here, and it is going to be FUN!"

11. Thank you, Mira, for this much-needed beauty break.

One needs to stop and smell the flowers, especially at times like these.

20. Those are such a lovely light purple color!

We have pansies, daffodils, paperwhite narcissus, camellias and star magnolias blooming here in the Southeast. I hope there's not a hard freeze. It's been so warm and wet that flower buds are bursting out every where!

21. SO nice, NO WAY I can compete, but

DID go back out into a cold breeze to capture these:



Before I left home for a week, to do a few things in the suburbs, I spoke to 'my' crocus patch, in case it needed reminding that it's TIME!
