Signs of Spring!

I feel a little bad posting these green pictures of Spring when I know that there are drifts of snow and ice back home in Minnesota! But they are just too fun not to post! Maybe this will give all you Minnesotans a little hope of what's to come...and it will come. Don't despair!

I am dedicating this post to my dear mother, who asked me to go out and take some pictures of the flowers. So here they are Mom!
My mother-in-law's flower garden

"Snow drops"...these grow wild everywhere!

Crocus, also growing wild (behind the chicken coup)

...nodding their pretty yellow heads in tune to the fresh breeze. 
I love Spring!

(Sigh) Yes, we Minnesotans long for spring. Thanks for the pictures, though. They warmed my heart! -Tim

These pictures are just beautiful! It has been sunny and warm here in Colorado, but we're not quite into the green of spring yet!
