Is Winter Finally Over?

I have sprouts! Things are sprouting up everywhere in my yard, and I’m hoping this means Winter is finally over. I don’t have anything blooming in my yard yet, though, because all those nice early-blooming bulbs (crocus, daffodils) evidently are pretty tasty to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Squirrels that live in my backyard. I planted bulbs every Fall and they threw a party every year, so I finally stopped trying. Evidently the later-blooming bulbs, like the Magic Lily above, tulips, and hyacinths, don’t taste as good, so they let me keep those. I see these sprouts and I can’t help but smile, and maybe do a little happy dance if the neighbors aren’t looking. What made you smile this week? Stop by Feel Good Friday and share!

  1. Yippee!!

    I planted a perennial garden last spring so I am excited for the stuff to come up too! I checked yesterday and saw my grasses coming and the ferns too!!!

    Boo to the squirrels and rabbits 🙁

    Have a great weekend!!

  2. Spring is on the way. I know because the plants you put out several years ago for Mom next to the garage are about 4-inches tall. Can never remember the name of them. They are always the first to show up. Plowing the garden this weekend. I am so happy!

  3. I'm so excited to see sprouts coming up. Our snow is finally gone, but I'm sure it will be back. Green is good!

  4. Spring is here – the trade winds are howling. I used to love to see the snowdrops and crocus come and tha later bulbs too.
    XD

  5. I love this time of year, because you realise how resiliant things are – tiny buds forming on massive tress, and life bursting out all over the place!

  7. I was nursing a beautiful purple hyacinth inside getting it prepared for spring-just when it started to bloom my 2 year old shared a cup of soapy water with it. 🙁 My Hyacinth is no longer.

    Bring on the spring!!!

    Stopping by from SITS!

  8. Hi there.
    I want to think it's over but, the weather may disagree tomorrow.
    Stopping by via SITS to say hello.
    Have a great day!

  9. Visiting here from SITS 🙂

    I really, really hope winter is over. I am so over this rainy, cold weather and ready for some Florida sunshine. 🙂
