So Spring is finally here!
At least, somewhat. We seem to be stuck in a tug of war between Spring and Winter here; one day it snows/rains/sleets and the next it's sunny & 50F, then it repeats. There's also usually a cool-very cold wind blowing. But at least full-fledged Spring is on it's way!
There are still no flowers though (unless you count store-bought ones imported from much warmer locations lol), the crocus and daffodils are just starting to come up. But they get a little bigger every day, and if it would stop snowing on them! A couple weeks ago, on the 21th (March) I drove out to the woods where I've previously taken photos of Mayflowers, Trilliums, Spring Beauties, and other Spring flowers. Underneath all of last year's old leaves and stuff I found many big fat Mayflower buds, so those should be blooming very soon now. We only have Crocuses, Narcissus, and Star Flowers in our yard, as over the years the Tulips & Hyacinths have froze/rotted out; but I have some relatives close by who let me wander their yard with my camera for as long as I like once the flowers open.
Also on that same day I saw my first Robin of this year, and then about 10 more of them lol! They were singing so pretty. I got a couple shots, but not very close ones, as they were at the tip top of huge trees. Will upload them soon, working on other things right now.
Below are some Spring art pieces I've been collecting the last couple of weeks, most are from my devWATCH but a few aren't. I still had 2 "Winter Features" I had planned to do, but now that the weather is looking much nicer I am very uninspired to do them, so I've stored the WordPad file I had the thumbs saved on for next winter. Things are a bit busy here, but I hope to start up my "Spring Features" this week... First one will be Robins, then Easter, Green Grass, Crocus, Daffodils, etc.
Anyway, I hope all of you are having a wonderful day!
Happy Spring, and I hope you enjoy the following features!
