It's not much, but it's a start

I was out in the yard the other day with my camera and I noticed the tiniest buds on my forsythia. It's not a lot but it's something. It won't be long before they are covered in those lovely yellow flowers. I know you can't really see the buds in the picture but believe me, they're there.

Oh, yes, I see them... exciting!

Sandee said...

And all that snow it gone. I'm guessing Duke is a very happy guy. Warm feet and all. Spring is indeed a wonderful time of year.

Have a terrific day. Big tummy rubs to Duke. :)

Lin said...

I see them! I see them! :)

Nessa said...

It looks like a dead bush but I can see those buds :)

tahtimbo said...

I see them! That means Winter has withered and Spring is springing :)

Audrey said...

Lucky you!! No buds here yet, it's been quite cool the last couple of days. Hopefully in a couple of weeks we will see real signs of spring :)

VanillaSeven said...

I hope they grow soon! More green for this Spring!

BeadedTail said...

The buds are confirmation that Spring is on it's way - I look forward to seeing them every year!

Ratty said...

I can see them. I've been watching for the same thing on the trees near my house. I'm getting excited!

Trust me I can see the buds! LOL

Enjoy Spring! Celebrate life! ^_^

allotments4you said...

I can definitely see the buds...I have been looking for signs of spring for weeks so they jumped right out at me. Glad you're experiencing spring too....won't be long now until the world is pretty with colours!!

Mee2 said...

I see it! I see it! It's a start, and anything is better than winter. :o)

FishHawk said...

It may be different up there, but down here, we often get some of our worst winter weather in April. So, I ain't peeling my long-johns off until June.

Are those the stupid big things along the side of the house?....this would be Amanda if you hadnt yet guessed lol.

digiVickie said...

I see!! Yayyyy for Spring!

JD at I Do Things said...

Budlets!

And yesterday I noticed that, despite our freak snow last weekend, my daffodills are up and nodding their yellow heads.

SPRING!

Bossy Betty said...

Oh yes! Those buds will be opening any day now! Yahoo!

Duni said...

Aren't you lucky, Ann!

Not much blooming in our garden as of yet, but it's been a rough winter for these parts.
And the rain doesn't help either!

Vixen said...

Come on spring, I know you can do it!

Sandee said...

Have a terrific day and weekend Ann. Big tummy loves to Duke. :)

Grace said...

I love forsythia - more a harbinger of Spring for me than crocuses (croci ?)

Grace said...

Ann, go over to Beaded Tail. Her "Friday Features" has a painting that looks like you might have done it. Or Duke is free-lance modeling and forgot to tell you!

Anne said...

I believe you. I noticed tiny purple flowers growing yesterday. Of course, we are expecting snow in the next couple of days so that will probably upset the flowers but I can enjoy them while they are here.

OLLIE MCKAY'S ~ A Chic Boutique said...

Ahhh. . . . I should take a picture of the Forsythia here - it all in full bloom - all over the place - just magnificent!! Happy Friday to all!

Anna said...

The crocuses and snow-drops have just started to bloom here! But there are still piles of snow and it rains a lot. Forsythia is still in the future!
Hugs,
Anna

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Ann said...

allotments4you any sign no matter how small is a good sign

mee2 you got that right

fishhawk I finally was able to go to just one layer of clothes instead of 3 when I get dressed for work.

Amanda, yes it's that stupid thing on the side of the house. What? you don't like it? Of course I knew it was you :)

vickie yes YAYYYYYYYYYYYY

JD yep those are budlets. I think I should go clean out the flower bed I might find some daffodils trying to pop up

Bossy betty yes and I can't wait.

Duni we haven't had too much rain but then it's still early

vixen yes come on spring

sandee duke loves those tummy rubs

grace I don't have any crocus or croci...lol I'll have to rely on my forsythia and the stray daffodil or two that I might have out there

Grace, I saw it and I loved it.

Anne Oh I wish I had tiny purple flowers I hope you don't get that snow

Ollie McKays I'm envious...lol I can't wait to see mine in full bloom

Anna the snow is all gone here now Finally!

Buggys said...

There's a house near mine that has a huge forsythia hedge and I noticed tonight it's all in bloom!

Ann said...

Buggys, I can't wait till mine is. I love all the yellow. Of course they get way out of control and have to be trimmed back a lot but it's worth it for that burst of color they bring in the spring.
