Spring Can't Come Soon Enough!

Last Spring I took some photos and I'm desperately needing some spring RIGHT NOW. I took a chance that you might need some too, so here are some of my favorite views of springtime around me...and I'm still waiting. Just a few more days and it will start anew--I hope. And hope springs eternal! 

It's hard to see but the floor of our woods breaks out in skunk cabbage in the early spring. It's usually one of my first signs that spring has sprung. This is 30 feet down and by the creek. 

We took a trip last spring to St. Louis to watch the St. Louis Blues hockey team play. They were a few weeks ahead of us weather-wise and I snapped this photo in front of a business downtown. It was just what I needed. Last fall my son Bryce and I planted hundreds of bulbs, so I'm anxiously looking for them to pop up! (And hopefully look a little like this.)

This "volunteer" Trillium is one of spring's true natives in Indiana. This one grew right by my front step and I look forward to its return each spring

This is a crocus that I planted years ago by the "entrance" to our woods (a trellis that leads to a path  30-feet down.)  Every year I can barely wait for it to pop up. It's stunning!

Another crocus by the woods. Cheerful yellow--one of my favorite colors. 

These daffodils were by our back porch. Not sure if they will come up again because we had to do some work on the posts and digging was involved. 

Hope this little dose of spring is just what you needed today, too. Blessings!

Thank you, Crystal. I can smell those daffodils now! Just what I need as we wait for the next ice storm to blow in tonight.
