The leaves are starting to peek out on the Chinese Willow in our back yard. We do a whole lot of sittin' under this tree when the weather is warm. You may have to click to enlarge the photo to see.
We planted this Blooming Pear tree in the front yard late last Spring to replace my beloved Mimosa that died from a lightening strike. I'm watching closely for the first bloom from this little lady.
Hipped rows in the field on the south side of our house. Seeing tractors in the field is a sure sign of Spring in these parts.
These early daffodils were growing in a yard in Lexa so I got a quick shot of them (I didn't want want the folks living there to come to the door with a shotgun). They must be one of the earlier varieties because mine don't even have a bud showing yet; just the green blades. Last year my early daffodils first started blooming the last week in February then Mother Nature dumped 7 inches of snow on them the first week in March.
It's that time again; time to put out the results of our efforts for the new photo challenge. Joy over at Shuttershy was kind to be our topic hostess for this round. Thank you Joy!
The signs were subtle around here so I had to get up close to see most of them, but over the next couple of weeks I expect Spring will start popping out all over here in the Mississippi River Delta.
I have noticed a few of the Tulip Trees (pink magnolias) have been trying to open a few blooms, and some of the Spring shrubs are beginning to flower.
