Signs

We found some precious signs of spring today. 
They came slowly this year.   Nonetheless they have started to arrive.
 
There was even a blossom or two to sniff.
 
 A beautiful blue sky was so nice to see.  The honking geese could be heard overhead.    The peepers were even letting us know they were awake.   When they start to sing I know spring has finally come.  
 


The woods look sparse now.   Soon it will burst with new life.
 





Thank you for stopping by.   I loved sharing some signs of spring with you.   Hope you are seeing some too!

  1. I know how exciting seeing signs of spring can , here in Australia we have our signs of Autumn happening right now. I love all seasons but am always ready to move to the next.

  3. Hi Debbie,
    Yes, finally spring has come. Also in this part of Europe with the sun shining and the crocuses can now be seen along the streets. Your little bird is very lovely. Enjoy the spring and God bless.

  5. Hi Debbie, we are having a lot of rain. I guess that is spring weather but I would love some sunny days too to enjoy the outdoors. I love your pictures and your watercolor is precious.

  8. Beautiful photos of early spring. I like the way you put together photos to tell a story, and use some of your artwork with them. Your little bird is so sweet. I like the bare branches on the trees... your post reminds me that I should get out there and take some reference photos of my own before they get full of leaves!

  10. I love the slow awakening of Spring...it is exciting...to see each new flower shoot up from the ground...buds on the tree...little birds like the one in your painting that greet the day with happiness. You have captured it in your ph0to's...the slow awakening. :)

  11. Hi Debbie Your photos are wonderful and your painting is beautiful. Yes the bobcat is back along with the bears. We don't have moose here but we do have Elk and they are huge. I have what we call our 19 resident elk. Makes gardening rather hard but we try. We have had a cougar or two but not lately. We try to take precautions and never let Teddy out without an escort. Ah life in the woods. We recently saw an albino deer, so beautiful.

  12. Love the beautiful watercolor at the end, Debbie. I've still not seen any flowers or buds anywhere but we've been getting weather in the 50's and even into the 60's (low) a couple of days this week so I suspect we're getting close and we'll see them soon. Still below freezing at night though so maybe not just yet.

  13. Thanks for bringing some spring into our lives Debbie. Seems as though spring has forgotten us this year. Though the flowers are out and the birds are doing their business, it is all happening with bitterly cold winds. Nature can be so harsh sometimes. Love the piccies and paintings as always. You are a very talented lady Debbie. Keep warm!!!

  15. Debbie, I'm so glad spring is finally appearing for you. I love the painting of the little bird, she (he?) has such a hopeful look about her.

    Blessings,
