Mosaic Monday - Signs of Spring

After that insane week of snow and flooding a couple weeks ago, things have calmed down considerably! In fact the past several days have been sunny and even mildly warm - especially for us PacNW Oregonians this time of year.

The day lilies and daffodils are on their way, the lilac has tiny buds and the andromeda is starting the bloom. The honeybees were enjoying that and I've noticed the return of robins and other little birds that sing me songs in the morning. That bird nest is old and looks like it blew down from an upper part of the tree, but it still makes me think of spring.

Be sure to visit Little Red House to see all the beautiful mosiacs.

Awesome, spring has arrived to your part of heaven. A few more weeks in mine. Thanks for sharing your spring.

We've been amazed at all the signs of Spring here in FL this week, too! Everything is greening up overnight! ♥

Yes, we Oregonians are officially into our two weeks of Delusional Spring.
You caught the robin. I saw a great one on my lawn as I was driving to work sans camera.
Got to go plant the garden now.
