Photo of the Week...Changing Seasons

It has taken me all week to find signs of Spring. Today is the first day of Spring and I will say that the signs are slowing appearing.

The grass in our yard is starting to green up and look...already I found a dandelion amongst the crabgrass. My yard really does need attention. We have clumps here and there mixed with a few wild onions sprigs.

I'm not sure what these little purple flowers are, but when they start appearing, you know Springtime is just around the corner.

I snapped this picture because I was following some sort of blue bird...he or she nestled in. This is left over berries for the climbing plant on our shed. Since I know very little about plants and their names...I can't tell you what it is. Evidently, the birds don't care for them...they are so plentiful.

I did find that the Red bud tree at the side of my house is now starting to bud. We usually see the flowering pear first, then the service berry tree, then the red bud and dogwood.

A hah, the first budding of the daffodils...Spring is here...

Have a great day....Shelly


  1. Hi Shelly, The little purple flowers appear to be violets :-) how lucky are you. They are so pretty. Thanks for sharing them.

  2. I've always had a soft spot for daffodils as they were my favourite flower as a child. I believe the purple flower plant is called a Creeping Charlie (Ground Ivy). It certainly sounds like spring is starting in your neck of the woods ~ :)

  3. We get that same purple ground cover here, I like them and wish it would thicken out instead of being so scattered. I haven't seen anything much for spring here yet, a couple robins and and buds but that is all. I can't wait to see a dandelion in my yard!!

  4. my seasons change every day right it is freezing drizzle.... a day or two ago...a lovely balmy +15C... too wild and woolly for me...I'm staying in and doing some baking today.... and wrestling on a paw pad for that funny bunny I'm working on....
