Is spring finally here?

This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.
This song keeps running through my mind on this beautiful morning. I thank God for each day, but the sunshiny ones are extra special.

I think we are finally, slowly easing into spring! It's been a long time coming and I think everyone is ready for some warmer temperatures and most of all, some sunshine! Sunshine and blue skies are a rare commidity through the long winter months here in Ohio, and makes one jump for joy when we finally receive one.

 Today is one of those days and the birds are singing.......

and the bluebirds are checking out some future homes. I'm hoping they decide to move in.

 The hellebores are starting to bloom again after getting frozen this last month.

And I love when the dainty crocuses start blooming. 

These bright cheery flowers have been appearing this week.....a welcome sign that spring is on it's way.

Thank God for Spring!



  1. You know we have some more cold weather coming in tomorrow I believe. Hopefully that really is it. Have a nice Easter.

  2. You have COLOR! We don't yet...though the past couple of days have called us outdoors to begin cleaning up after winter. Our birds certainly know spring is here, though. My! They were singing loudly this morning!

  3. And a Blessed Easter to you and yours..

    Lovely signs of Spring... When our Crocuses bloomed, I thought Spring was coming... BUT--then, Winter reared its ugly head again!!!! Still don't have much spring around here --but hopefully, SOON...

    My Bluebirds are nesting now in the Bluebird Nestbox.

  4. I always love it when the Bluebird come back to the garden. Such beautiful birds. Your crocus are so pretty and cheerful. So ready for some color.
