Mosaic Monday - Spring

(click image to enlarge)

Spring sprung! The day I returned home from my vacation the skies opened up and poured sunshine on me so I walked around the yard with my inspection hat (that's figuratively speaking) on and was delighted to find things a-bloom. Daffodils, violas, grape hyacinths and forsythia with plenty more on the verge. I can't wait until that forysythia really gets going it is absolutely loaded with blossoms!

My sympathies for everyone still buried in snow and freak weather!

Be sure to visit Little Red House for other wonderful mosaics!



As a side note, there is a drainage pond on one end of my field.


It is the farthest you can get from my house and still be on the same property. And yet, listen to how noisy the frogs are at night! (you may have to turn up your volume)

The daffodils really bring in the sunshine! And the reflections on the pond is an added bonus, just beautiful!

Oooo, Molly, you are so lucky! We have to wait another month for spring here in my part of NJ. Thanks for sharing your wonderful images at MM. :)

Love your mosaic and those frogs are loud to be that far off. We have a spring fed pond next to our house and I love when the frogs start croaking at dusk that is a sign of spring coming. I haven't heard them hear yet, but it won't be long.

Hi I am a new girl and really going to enjoy Mosaic Monday each week. I am in the East of the UK and not much is happening in my garden yet

Oh! I'm jealous! I wish we had blooming bulbs someplace else than the grocery store! No snow here, but freaky weather is our middle name. I LOVE frogs and their evening calls. Fun!

Lovely signs of spring! The frogs are cheering for spring!!
Have a great day!

You're a little ahead of us. In Gig Harbor, a few buds on the azaleas are beginning to show a hint of colors and I noticed some early jonquils in bloom half a block away. Our frogs haven't started serenading yet, but they will soon. I love the renewal implicit in spring.

Those frogs may be loud, they sounds so peaceful at the same time.

I can't wait for all the snow to melt here so I can get a peek of flowers coming up too. :(

We have to wait a while before spring will arrive here. It is sooo cold. I can't wait to see the forsythia, our first indication that spring has arrived!
