One swallow does not make a spring.
Bluebirds are a sign of spring; warm weather and gentle south breezes they bring.
In spring, no one thinks of the snow that fell last year.
Don’t say that spring has come until you can put your foot on nine daisies.
The whole Earth smiles, thy coming to greet.
Spring is officially here (finally!), and the signs are so comforting. We’re excited to see what bulbs pop-up and what trees blossom – we’ve only seen our property in the winter, and I can’t wait to see what surprises it has in store. Here’s a sample of what we’ve seen so far.
One thing that I’m most excited about – this single yellow bud. During the winter, who knew what types of shrubs and bushes were around. But now, this little yellow bud makes me think forsythia! Yes! Looks like we’ll have at least a few forsythia bushes around – bright and cheery, with lots of color.
Lastly, a few of the smaller trees have a glowy haze of pink to them. We thought they might be apple trees, but by the look of these buds, I’m changing my guess to cherry trees. What do you all think? We have lots to learn and will be researching leaves, flowers, seeds, etc. as we go.
