Has spring sprung?

Maybe one daffodil doesn't make a spring. 

Or one "snowflake."

Maybe not even one camellia - even if it's a camellia that doesn't usually bloom until the first of April. 

But how about the first rose of the season?

Or the first redbud blossom? It's nearly three weeks until the calendar says it has arrived, but spring is definitely peeking over the windowsill. At least here in Southeast Texas.

  1. I am of the firm opinion that spring always arrives early in your garden. What beautiful blooms!

    1. Well, it surely seems to have done so this year, Anastasia!

  2. Wow...it looks like spring has really arrived in your garden. We are getting another covering of snow here in the northeast, but your photos surely give me hope!

  3. My fingers are hanging onto the ledge of spring, but they are numb from below zero weather and I am losing my grip. Everyone I know has a serious case of spring fever here in upstate New York. Right now we have sleet supposed to transition into freezing rain and then - above freezing tomorrow! So thank you for providing hope.

    1. You're welcome. Y'all have had a really rough winter up that way and I'm sure you need some hope, but just a few more weeks. The groundhog promised!

  4. It's so good to see signs of Spring. The roses here are still tight in bud!

    1. We may get a brief return to winter later today. A cold front is supposedly coming through, but I don't think it will last. Our winter, such as it was, is essentially over.

  5. It's on it's way, isn't it? My spindly little Carolina Jessamine is covered in buds. I wonder if I should have pruned it to encourage branching, but I think I missed the opportunity. The honeysuckle Major Wheeler has blooms too. I would have thought it was too early for it, but there they are.

    1. Everything seems to be coming early this year. It's been a weird winter.
