Signs of Spring

Even the calendar’s statement that it is March cannot quite convince me that this is not one of the first days of Spring. There are tiny catkins on the birch trees; barren branches are surrounded with the faint hint of red, gold and green. Here there is no sound of busy traffic; only the cooing of the morning dove, the liquid call of the first robin, songs of the birds. The only movement is of the breeze through the trees and the unfolding of the grasses; tiny shoots pushing their way up through the moist earth. Crocus and daffodils open their blossoms; radiant jewels in the crisp morning sunlight. Deep from the heart of nature wells the music of promised spring.

I'm just about to go to bed after gazing at the full moon appearing through a break in black clouds. Your lovely photos made me think of enchanting spring days in the Connecticut woods. A gentle vision to dream on tonight! Thank you ...

Yes, ditto the full moon. As Rain suggests, you put a blank piece of paper out for the full moon. On the new moon you write your desires. I was blown away with this process. Beautiful post.

In spite of snow and high winds yesterday, the American Woodcock was in full moon song, (well, ok, buzz) last night. Spring is on the way.

Yes, spring seems to have made its sweet and colorful appearance here too. Our yard looks like yours-- the daffodils and crocus are blooming, and the trees are starting to show signs of life. We can't resist being outside and getting our hands in the soil. I'm looking forward to seeing our first hummingbird of the season.

Thank You for the comments on my journal. Nice to see spring has arrived in your area. Love the picture of the crocus. I miss seeing them. You can't have here, they become snacks for the deer.
