This Week…Spring’s Renewal Everywhere We Look


On our walk this week, Larry noticed that he could see all of the trees filling out with leaves.  That’s not all, we saw buds and some blossoms as well. 


Happiness? The color of it must be spring green.

Heck, even the flowering weeds were out.

Spring has a way of letting us know that life goes on. No matter how cold our winter was, there is HOPE in the coming spring. 


Spring is the time of plans and projects. Leo Tolstoy

We currently have 3 bird boxes with babies ready to fledge or eggs ready to hatch.

Hope you have an opportunity to get out this weekend and take a look at what Spring has laid out for us!!!


Hope you have a wonderful SPRING weekend!

Hello Kathy - this week's arrival of Spring almost feels like April in SoCal as rain showers and all sorts of weather mischief have been present.  What might be forecast next Friday?

Hi Kathy... we had days this week where temperatures went over 80 degrees... feels more like summer! Regardless, I love and welcome spring with open arms.

Such beautiful photos you have shared with us!  When the weeds begin to flower, they actually look quite nice, haha.

Kathy, nice to hear you are seeing so much blossoming for spring.  When I was in TX, loved seeing grass, flowers and leaves.   All I have in Denver is my chives are popping up.

Joan Cox I hope that you got to see the beautiful Texas bluebonnets.

Good  morning Kathy,

I love this time of year when everything is awakening! The birds are chirping and all the buds that are filling the trees are such a vibrant shade of green!!

Kathy even though it is still on the colder side, we are also beginning to see signs of Spring.  The daffodils and crocuses are blooming, and the trees have buds.  So we will be seeing beautiful colors very soon.

George Souto I always think of crocuses and daffodils and other bulbed flowers poke through the dirt.

The cherry blossoms in bloom in our area and many visitors are in DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival. Sunday is expected to be a perfect day for viewing the blossoms.

Hi Kathy,

After seeing your images, there is hope that spring will be here soon (for Sedona). haha!

We have the birds, quail are calling but other than our daffodils, none of the bushes or trees are getting leaves yet at my house.

Everyone is anxious for Spring here, but no real sign of it yet. I guess the longer we have to wait, the sweeter it will be when it does arrive.

I came in from working outside in my garden a bit ago.  It's beautiful in Sacramento today.  We have another storm arriving tomorrow, however.
