The Promise of Spring


The signs of Spring seem to be coming forth early this year!




A maple tree's buds are swelling with life...against the backdrop of a bright blue sky.






A container of Pansy's, stored in the greenhouse over the winter, is blooming!







Mr. Robin....singing from the highest branches of a budding Poplar tree.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



"For, lo, the winter is past; The rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; The time of the singing of birds is come..."
Song of Solomon 2:11-12

It is definitely on its way. I think we will have an early spring this year.

A rather long over due visit to your blog - some beautiful pictures as always. I must admit have been finding it hard to keep up with blogging with all the work I was getting last year but I'm hopeful that I might be able to get a more time again for it in 2012! Take care Miranda

It is SO exciting to see our Mr. Robin camping out on the top of the compost bin! I'm soaking peas today for planting...just in case it really is spring!!!! Great pictures, Connie.
