Aren't We All Ready for Spring?

Was it just me, or was there a change in the morning light today? Stronger, brighter, just a bit of warmth in the air. I swear I could feel it.

I certainly have nothing to whine about with the weather, considering it's much warmer here than many places. However, it is going to rain yet again this weekend. It's hard to complain since we've been in a drought for ever!

Looking around the yard, I'm noticing little signs of renewal. My Daylily was dead, people. As in a door nail. But look who's decided to give it another go!

The crocus are stretching their leaves, waking from their long slumber.
The roses have decided to spring back to life, sending out brand new leaves.
The Gerbera Daisy stood up to lay aside its coat of frozen leaves to declare spring's arrival.
And my favorite of all, the wild violets are touching my heart these days with their colorful pronouncement!
Message of the day: Don't give up. Don't quit. Tomorrow brings new life.

Like your thought for the day. It's how I've had to approach the last few days or I'd have gone stir crazy. Good to see your spring photos. I rarely get to see much of spring these days and certainly not its start. I miss it.

I even noticed a difference today in Michigan, the sun was out, it seemed to be saying hold on, Im coming;)

I loved seeing all these signs of spring. I'd have to look long and hard to find some around here!

Oh, you're so way ahead of us...! ;) In spite of sunshine we're still deeply buried under snow and ice here...

Wow...Spring is in Arizona :)

We still have a few weeks before we see anything remotely resembling blossoms, but I'm hearing my birdies and seeing my critters ♥
