First Sightings of Spring


On Saturday, I saw a few California poppies waving "Hey ya! Hi ya! How ya?" from some slopes along the road. Whooo-hooo!

I also saw irises nestled in with some yellow ice plants along a sidewalk in the town next over. Yippieee!

On the home front, our ornamental pear tree is full of snow-white blossoms.  Wheeeeeeee!



I'm hooking up with Our World Tuesday. Here's the link for you to check out participants from around the world, and maybe to join up yourself. Thanks, Our World Tuesday hosts!

  1. It's always good to see the first signs of spring. The pear tree blossoms are beautiful :)

    1. This is the first year that the tree has been in full bloom when it's supposed to be. Usually, it's a little bloom here, a little there from October to March.

    1. Fall is mine, but Spring is a very close second. There used to be years when I'd be so engulfed in work that I missed Spring.

  9. Heavens to Murgatriod! Look at all that Spring-y stuff! :) ... the only thing growing around here are puddles. I think its been raining since the beginning of January ... but there's a change coming - an arctic front, so we might get a bit of sun, but it'll be freezing cold. :)

    1. I wouldn't mind the rain. Unlike last winter, we've only had a few days worth of puddles. Be sure to tell your rain to head down to us.

  11. Very pretty. It will be a while before we see spring - March and April are our snowiest months!

    1. I don't recall where I transplanted the iris to. Hopefully, they'll pop up.

  16. Spring in early February! I'm almost jealous! The forecast here in southeastern Alberta is for a heavy snowfall tonight.
    Your ornamental pear tree is just beautiful. We have an ornamental crabapple tree which attracts deer in winter. First they eat all the fruit they can reach...even standing on their hind legs. Then they search for fallen fruit in the snow below.
    Every spring I take photos of our ornamental crabapple. I now have umpteen pictures of it, most of them pretty much the same, but I can't resist! Every winter my husband takes pictures of deer at the tree...same thing, almost all the same!
    Enjoy your beautiful spring flowers and blossoms!

  17. lol. The other day I was telling myself I need to get rid of a lot of my picture files of the same stuff. I truly wouldn't mind some rain, even snow. The stone fruit orchards in our area could use more cold weather. Maybe it's late, knock on wood, it is.

  18. The ornamental pear trees are blooming here, too. It's been in the 80s so they are early and confused, but they are certainly beautiful!
