Sure Signs of Spring

Yesterday morning was spent
looking for sure signs that spring was really here.

I needed proof.

It appears all the Canadian Geese are home.
That's a good sign that spring is here.


Sparkles of sunlight on water.
That's a good sign that spring is here.



Sweet duck mates sitting on a nest.
That's a good sign that spring is here.



Purple flowers glistening in sunlight.
That's a good sign that spring is here.



Were these things enough to confirm that
spring was really here to stay?




Hmmmm.....


yup...
it's spring.

The pictures are lovely, especially the crocuses. Nothing coming in my yard yet since my little flower bed faces north.

Still, the warm weather is lovely. Enjoy!

I sure hope spring is here, but I'll know more after Tuesday. Quite a large snowstorm headed near us. :-(
These purple flowers, do you know what they are? I found some last week and was photographing them. I had never seen them before and thought they were so pretty.

All of these are wonderful Catherine!
Happy Sunday to you!

Ha-ha! You are such a hoot! I'm sure I say that all the time. :) Believe it or not, we actually do have a golf course, but golfers have to take advantage of it during the winter season (just like with baseball which just ended). Your images of spring and its arrival are gorgeous! Happy day! Tammy

Penelope's Beehive said...

Such lovely photographs Catherine! I am delighted to hear that Spring has arrived in your corner of the world. A few inches of snow is expected here by Tuesday morn. Such twirly-whirly weather!

The weather hasn't made up it's mind what season it is here. Not too long ago we had Summer temperatures; now we have early Spring/late Winter. Oh well, birds are chirping and flowers are blooming.

Our Canadian Geese are home too! We had 26C yesterday, the patio furniture is out and i am loving it! BUT.....you know that whenever I put the patio furniture out, it is guaranteed that we have not seen the last of the snow, and that big ol' Spring snowstorm could be lurking just around the corner!
