I Think Spring Is Here

“I Think Spring Is Here”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

Every day there seems to be more and more early signs of spring approaching. Today, the ornamental pear tree’s buds showed that it won’t be too long before they unfurl their petals, and there will be the spectacular show of white flowers.



It has been years since I have been longing this much for spring. Even though spring does not officially begin until March 20th, with our temperatures in the high 60’s and low 70’s and flowers starting to pop out, it looks like spring has arrived here a little earlier than the official date.

    Your weather sounds positively wonderful, though we have little to complain about here in Nova Scotia this year. I believe we’re going to have an earlier than usual Spring as well. 🙂 Your blossoms should be spectacular.

    It is such a magical time of year – it’s nice in your photo to see both the buds and blooms – both so pretty.

    Early or not, I’ll take it when it gets here! I’m ready to get my beautiful garden back! 🙂

    Everyone will be so glad to see this winter behind us. With those temps things will start growing fast now.

    No need for any of us to worry. Spring never skips its turn, but if you live in zone 4 it helps to be patient.

    My Edgeworthia chrysantha is finally opening…a wonderful fragrance of spring.
