After a crazy whackadoodle winter, spring has finally begun to sprout around these parts.Β  The apple tree is coming to life with greenery (I’m looking forward to the blooms soon to follow):

The fruit cocktail tree is proudly showing buds:

The hostas are coming out of hibernation looking full and healthy:

And even a little gray fox came out to play:

Has spring started to sprout in your neck of the woods?

  1. Everything around me sprouted in February. We have had 90 degree weather and strong winds. The winds have died down from this morning, but they were really whipping up the sand earlier with some big gusts. We have lost so much fruit off of our trees this year due to the gusty winds we have been having. Looks like we won’t have many plums this year, but the peach trees and the cherries took the winds well.

    I guess your little Princess is waiting for the carrots from the garden, right? πŸ™‚

  2. PN is so adorable! We are apparently having 3 seasons this week. It snowed yesterday, and by Sunday it’s supposed to be in the 80’s. Mother Nature really needs to get it together. Enjoy spring!!!

  3. Well, I tried something different and that is taking the pic off the Post & here’s what it said :Missing op. Not sure what that means & I bet I’m the only one that happens too! WELL ANYWAY…. Lovin’ your pics and so sad my hostas are POOF I just don’t see them all though I do see some buds on my burning bushes (new last year) Woo Hoo! Thanks for sharing your lovely pics, but I see you have a sly little fox sneaking around your yard huh!!!! I’d keep an eye on that one if I were you! ~snicker~

    1. I’ll look into the problem with your images after I get back from the dentist this morning, Marie – might be something with the size if the image or the format. I’ll let you know – rest assured you’re not the only one it happens to, I’ve run into it when there are people linked with no images (which don’t show up in the linky until an image is added) and I run into size or format issues and have to work around it – I’ll email you the details later. πŸ˜€

      That sly fox is definitely one to keep an eye on! LOL! πŸ™‚

    1. She is quite the friendly fox – most days! πŸ˜‰ A fruit cocktail tree is a tree that will produce nectarines, peaches, plums, and apricots all from the same tree! I’ll be curious to see how it does this year, though – it hasn’t given us any good fruit since I planted it about 3 years ago…it’s looking much better this year with a ton more blossoms, so we’ll see how much fruit we (finally) get this year! It’s quite the conversational piece – along with our 5-on-1 apple tree I planted the same year. πŸ˜‰

    1. Frogs are kind of creepy, Pam – so it’s understandable you have a fear of them. At least your fear is more ‘reasonable’ in my book than my hubby’s fear of horses! I bet you don’t wonder what kind of sound a frog makes before it ‘attacks’ like the hubby’s asked about horses. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the heads up on your blog hop directory – I’ll check it out after I get back from the dentist! πŸ˜€

    1. LOL Jennifer! It really is an actual thing – it’s a tree that will produce nectarines, peaches, plums, and apricots all from the same tree!

  4. Oops, I linked up in the wrong spot the first time, so now I’m on their twice. Silly moi.

    That’s a cute gray fox you’ve got running around there! πŸ™‚

  5. Spring is a cool season! The opportunities and the scenes are so overwhelming. πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing this with all of us.

  6. Outside is the best place to be in spring time. I love the feel of the grass walking barefooted from my veranda to cross the 50 meters distance of my cottage and the shoreline. The sand is therapeutic to feet that feels suddenly free and itching to explore the beach and its wonders. It’s heaven on earth! Hope spring comes to your place in full blast.

  7. Stacy,

    I’m glad that spring is there for you already. I am in the tropical zone and I’m wishing to see the spring how you see it. Actually, spring is my favorite in foreign country too. Flowers just simply brighten the day and seeing them bloom makes you smile easily.
