I have been waiting for weeks for Mother Nature to give us a break so our yard will start to sprout forth and give us some actual signs of spring.  After many days of 40-degree weather, Mother Nature started having her hot-flashes again, donning us with the heat and humidity usually reserved for August the past few days.  Have I mentioned how much I dislike Mother Nature this year?  At least now things are really starting to blossom, like my apple tree:

My grape vines are budding nicely:

Even a few of my irises are starting to show life:

Of course that also means that the weeds are growing rampant along the stream to the pond – looks like I’ll have my work cut out for me this weekend when we’re finally due for a break from the onslaught of rain:

It’s been a long wait – but it appears that spring has finally sprung!

  1. I can’t wait until you show some pictures with everything fully in bloom. I bet that garden of yours is going to look fantastic. Unfortunately, I can’t have one like that because I’m highly allergic to bees, so is my son. So, I just stay away from flowers & planting them is only inviting trouble. Oh well!

  2. Can I come hide out at your place until it stops HAILING here????

    PS Having a giveaway for $50 Target GC, come enter, it’s for a good cause!

  3. It’s only fitting to have a lovely garden when you’re a lovely lady. Thank you for hosting, and I’m already a follower.

  4. Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, my oh my….what a beautiful stream with the flagstone surrounding!! I love that.

    Thanks for visiting my Wednesday blog post. And you leaving a comment is always a special treat for me!!

    Here is my Thursday post if you care to view it:

    Heart of Stone [literally]

    Hope your day has been treating you well.

  5. Really lovely pictures! I just found your blog and loved it enough to hang around for a while. As a new blogger, I’m still learning about memes. Once I wrap my head around all these new terms, I might even participate!

    Thanks for sharing from your newest follower.

  6. Man, you are lucky. It snowed last night where I live. I know I live in Canada, but jeepers, I live in a temperate part!

    Any day now, any day….

  7. I love the first blooms of spring. This is our first spring in our house so we were surprised by all that popped up!

  8. I’m glad you’re finally getting your spring.

    Mother Nature has lost it here in Israel too – we’ve actually had rain and thunderstorms this week, absolutely unheard of by the end of April. Utterly ridiculous this late in the season, what the heck happened to spring?

    My photography is available for purchase – visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

  9. You have a neautiful garden! I love that last photo. Spring seemed to come early in London this year, certainly a month earlier than last year, and it has been lovely, sunny and warm. Fingers crossed for a decent summer!

  10. Hi! Great photos. Spring came, the weather is warm and sunny. Have a good rest in the nature after winter.

  11. Beautiful pictures! I love spring, all the anticipation of good weather and summer around the corner 🙂
