Is Spring early?

The calendar doesn't say SPRING yet but Easter is earlier this year so maybe . . .


Seems like everyone around us was just griping about so much snow (I would have enjoyed a little of that snow they were talking about!) Last Saturday, I saw my first crocus and my first dandelion. It won't be long before the Daffodils are showing their pretty heads!



Earlier in the week I found this flower and I have no idea what it is. If someone knows, I could label it properly! Thanks, Dot! It is a white Camellia.




I fell asleep waiting for the lunar eclipse Wednesday night and this is all I got just after 7:00 PM. Maybe in two years. . .

Beautiful, Paulie. We're in the grips of such cold and wind that I think we've a few more weeks before the crocuses will dare to come out! Thanks for the view.

Is there a flower missing from your post? I see two and the second one looks like a white camellia. Maybe the dandelion is not showing up for some reason.

I don't know what that flower is either, but its pretty. And your so lucky if you got some color in your yard.
I can't wait for spring to get here.

No, Dot, the photo I took of the dandelion was fuzzy and I haven't had a chance to go back but I will because I want to compare "ours" with yours that looked like a beautiful flower.

I have seen daffodils here close to Yamhill. Hope you have a good one Paulie.

Your flowers are lovely and so is the moon. I was awake for my shots but the clouds were really bad.

Welcome Spring!! I'm afraid it will be a chilly Easter this year. There's still time for some snow. We had snow in April in Alabama once. And the biggest snowfall of my life happened in March of 1993. We had 26 inches at one time. We're still hoping you get some more.
