Signs of Spring

Spring came early this year—before winter was gone, the weather turned unseasonably warm, the grass turned green, and the flowers bloomed. Here are the signs of spring in my neighborhood:

Garden shoes, garden gloves

Forsythias at Polecat Creek Farm


Wild plums along the road.

Dogwood tree almost ready to bloom

A recently shed antler

Redbud trees by the driveway

Buds on the pin oak

Gazebo

Tulips

Violets

Luminaria

Jim-Bob the kitty

Cherry tree

Corkscrew willow & cherry tree

Farmland & Jack's Mountain

Melody grazing in a green pasture.

Beautiful pics! I have always wanted to find antlers that have been shed. You would think that with all of the bucks that we have living in our yard and in the woods surrounding us, there would be a bunch!

Thanks for sharing your spring photos! I still have some time to wait for spring here in NH.

Wonderful post!
I like the shot of the violets. It reminds me of a time when I was just a little boy. I always picked a fistful for my mom. (In the old country they smell heavenly).
