Yesterday’s walk…

…produced Springtime surprises!

At the Emil Bach House, the legendary array of Tulips had begun to sprout!

Plus…the very first Crocus!

At the corner of Sheridan Road and Fargo Avenue, the Daffodils are standing proudly…won’t be long until they bloom!

Farther up Fargo Avenue, more Daffodils and Crocus!

But the best ‘gift’ of the day was my favorite early bloomer–the delicate, yet very hardy, Snowdrop!

Officially, Spring begins with the vernal equinox at 6:02 A.M. (CDT) on March 20, 2013 in the Northern Hemisphere.

Hooray!!!

  1. OH. I love this series. Springtime. Renewal. They remind me of “playful” kittens, peaking out at the world. The shots made me weepy, in fact. . .B. (Beautiful!!)

    • Oh, I did not mean to bring tears, Mlle B., unless…they were tears of JOY? I was so very thrilled to be out finding these dear little shoots…I’m having a hard time waiting for the flowers, and shall be watching buds very closely this year, to catch them as they develop!

  2. How wonderful, the cold may come to an end, though from what you have said, it won’t get hot hot, I have been thinking about planting some bulbs.
