CHANGE IS IN THE AIR

Nature is undeniably waking up and there are irrefutable signs of spring everywhere: lambs, buds growing fatter everyday, blossoming flowers, black birds singing in the morning as well as in the evening, cats fighting, crows tearing off branches in order to make their nests, snow melting, etc...

During our walk, last Sunday, I was able to capture a few of those little details which tell us that winter is ending and the warmer days are slowly coming back. Enjoy!

  7. It's wonderful to see the first signs of spring! Unfortunately, it hasn't arrived here in Regensburg. At least it has warmed up a bit and we get some sunshine in between the rain falls. :-)

  13. Yeah, yeah, yeah! I noticed a small sparrow alight on the branch outside of my window when I sat down to the computer. Spring is indeed on its way, AT LAST!

  14. Rosa, I'm so enjoying.

    The weather in my corner of the world is bright and sunny, even if the cold temperatures dispute the former.

    But temperatures are expected to climb this weekend, so hopefully my dogwood tree will make its flowering debut soon.

    In the meantime, I'll enjoy your spectacular display.

  15. Thank you so much for sharing your "signs of Spring". I am affraid the only sign we have is the longer days... which I will take.

    March 11 - (-26 C)
    March 12 - (-23 C)
    March 13 - heat wave - (-17 C)

    We still have the same snow in the yard that we had in December. I have to admit, I am soooo ready for Spring!

    Have a lovely day! (from the ice box of Norhtern Montana!
