A Preview of Spring

Hello all :-) I had a good weekend. It was pretty calm. Brit Boy and I just hung out around home. I finally finished my project that I was doing for my school work, so I was glad to complete that.

Today has turned out to be a lovely day here. It was kinda frosty this morning, but now it looks rather spring-like outside. It has been an extremely icy winter here and everywhere it seems, so I wanted to share a sneak peek of spring that I found today.

Blue skies are always good :-)



And our crocuses out back are breaking through. It’s so nice to have some color outside again.



Here's to spring coming soon. I know that we will still have more of that biting wind of winter to come, but I know that it will go away one day soon. In the meantime, I'm gonna enjoy the tail end of winter while I rejoice in the coming of spring. Stay warm everybody :-)

Today was a fantastically sunny day in Essex, it really cheered me up even though I couldnt go out in in as I was finishing off a project with a deadline. Bleh. I love seeing the little bulbs peeking through, it is so reassuring that all this miserable greyness wont last forever!

I'm so jealous of your flowers. Just snow here still. :O(

Yes, here's to spring. It's warmer here than there, but the weather has been rainy much of the time. And we keep on getting sick. Can't wait for flowers and new growth.

Your lavender bush sounds wonderful. I love lavender. I'm so glad that my pictures put you in a sunny frame of mind :)

Michelloui,
Absolutely, those little flowers were a very welcome sight. I'm so glad I could share them :)

Diane,
I hope the snow leaves you soon :)

Georgette,
Yeah, I really perked up when we had the preview of spring :)

MtnGrl,
LOL. Yeah, I wondered about the right way to say it. LOL.

Jennifer,
I hope that you and your family get well and stay well soon. Brit Boy has had a cold too. I'm with you, bring on the new growth! :)

Thanks for sharing the picture of the crocus! I am soooo jealous! I live in cold, snowy Michigan. Hopefully, we won't get anymore snow! I CAN NOT wait for Spring! Peace!
