Nature Notes: It's Spring!

Spring has finally arrived here in northern Indiana. Birds are chirping, robins are back, and last night when I got home the frogs were singing!

We usually have daffodils by now. They're late, but they're on the way. Isn't it amazing how tender green shoots can break hard clay soil like this?

Daffodils are my favorite part of spring. Can't wait to see those sunny yellow blossoms!

Daffodils are my absolute favorite.

We've been in Louisiana this week where spring is well underway. Tomorrow we fly home to Seattle where I believe the rain is finally slowing down, so perhaps the Pacific Northwest daffodils will show up soon.

lovely to see daffodil shoots pushing up through the ground like that, one of my favourite spring flowers too and they're just starting to flower over here

Daffodils are also one of my favorite flowers, an opinion no doubt heavily biased because they are our first blooms.

Daffodils are tough customers. A group of our daffodils got dug up by a backhoe and replanted by a bulldozer when our water line was installed. Those that ended up at the road's edge are doing fine. But some of the bulbs ended up in the road itself. Even though they were driven over and never allowed to fully sprout and bloom, those in the road kept trying to sprout every spring for about three years.

Nice to see the leaves poking their way through the soil! :)

I love to see spring flowers breaking through the hard ground. I'm glad you are seeing some signs of spring even if it's late.

Isn't it wonderful? Daffodils are everywhere now, a great harbinger of Spring.
