The Brenda Photo Challenge (4-16) Spring Easy

It's that time again. Another Brenda Photo Challenge. The topic is "spring easy". Part of the description for challenge stated ".If it Says Spring to you? Photograph it! SO, me Hardies....Lets get to rolling and Remember....Just have FUN with it!"
So I had to do a little searching here but I think I found just a little bit that said spring.
I took a close look at the trees in my back yard and what a pleasant surprise. They are finally waking from their long winter naps.

And here's another one.


I almost missed these. I was so glad I walked to the back of the yard when I saw that little bit of yellow peaking out.
 

Top left corner is one of those pink tulip bulbs I planted last fall at a neighbors request. You may recall my post about it. If I had more time I would link to it since it's worth reading

I know you're all waiting to hear about the puppy sitting experience but it'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Wonderful photos Ann...and I love the way you have layered them for presentation....I wish I could do stuff like this, I'm afraid I'm limited to changing things to sepia or black and white..lol

You found some beautiful signs of spring, I love the daffodils.

The Daffodils are beautiful. One of the first real signs of spring. We had some inside this year and will be transplanting the bulbs.
As usual all your pictures are wonderful. Looking forward to hearing about the puppy sitting.
