Signs that Spring is Upon Us

Sunday, March 20 — They’re out there, a little more subtle than not these days, but they’re there: signs that spring is upon us. Folks are working in their yards in earnest, you can see the beginnings of newly sown grass shooting up, the early spring bloomers — forsythia, daffodil, tulip trees — are showing signs of life.

So on this day, the last day of winter and the first day of spring, we thought it appropriate to bring you a few refreshing pictures to let you know that the snows and bitter cold of winter are fading quickly, and that the signs of spring are beginning to be seen if you look around carefully enough.

    Your photos are beautiful. I didn’t know there was such a thing as a “tulip tree”. My sisters neighbor has one in her yard, when I got home to look them up on google I found your pictures, thanks.I was wondering if it would be alright with you if I used your tuplic tree photo for a reference for a painting? Please email me sandf@sbcglobal.net.
