Spring is Springing Early! Come See All The Signs I Found In My Yard!

Grab a cup of coffee, and take a walk with me around the yard!

My favorite tree is all fluffy!!  I need to remember to send the little guy out to cut some branches for his teacher.  :) Last year, he was taking handfuls to school every day to hand out to his friends.  pussy willowIf you have a pussy willow, by the way, and you want to have MORE pussy willows, cut a woody stem while it looks like this.   Then simply jam it into the ground where you want the new one to grow!

It has been such an enjoyable winter!  Although I missed having snow, it has been really nice to be outside more often!

Even the maple trees are showing signs of life!spring3 

And I cant forget the new leaves that are growing on my clematis!spring7

But my favorite sign of spring?  Crocuses and miniature Irises!

Can you believe I took  these pictures during the month of February--while walking around in short sleeves?! 

I hope you are enjoying a touch of spring wherever you are!!
