Spring?

It may not be Spring here on the mountain, but it sure feels like it!
And looks like it.

Morning Crocus
 
Afternoon Crocus


I was even able to find a butterfly that thought it was Spring!

Winter Question Mark

  The White-throated Sparrow was prentending not to be there in the bush. 

 And the Barberry Bush is not holding back.
Looks like we were all fooled today!

It's beginning to look a little and feel a lot like spring up here on our ridge, too. now that I've typed that we'll probably get a foot of snow for St. Patrick's day!

These are all beautiful shots!

We in the low foothills of California are suppose to get SNOW on Friday. I can't believe it! What a mixture Spring is.

The crocus are so cheerful!
I'll be waking up to snow tomorrow, so I will think of them to remind me that spring really is coming.

Your sparrow is using his Jedi mind trick... "you cannot see me... go inside and do your dishes..."

Great photos. We've got a few daffodils budding and small weeds are blooming. The other day the backyard trees were filled with birds singing. I'm eagerly awaiting spring.
