Evidence of spring

Do you feel it in the air?
Do you see the signs?
Spring is struggling to arrive, and I for one, am more than ready for it. 

The daffodils are budding and growing taller each day.

The rhodedendrum is also beginning to bud (below).

The parsley in my garden is beginning to grow where it was last year.

The ground cover is starting to sprout new leaves.

What's going on in your corner of the world?

I am so ready for Spring, especially since I still have my winter cold:)

Yes! We're seeing last year's bulbs popping up, too! There are even some tulips and buttercups blooming.

I need to get that front porch garden changed out to Springtime edibles!

Great timing, and great pictures! I just did a post yesterday on the Therapeutic Landscapes Database Blog about spring harbingers: "Planting the Healing Garden: Spring is Coming, I Promise!" http://tldb.blogspot.com/. Lots more pictures, and news from around the country about what signifies spring to people. In my neck of the woods, witch hazel is the first sign.
