Spring is closer

crocus

We have had a string of sunny days. It has been so nice. Even today, a Monday, it was wonderful to see the sun out. It has spurred the plants along. The crocus and snowdrops are doing well. I have also seen a few daffodils in bloom in the warmer areas of the city.

And did you realize that daylight time starts in 2 weeks! Yes, it starts the 2nd Sunday of March which is March 9th. I'll have to give up waking to sunlight for a couple of weeks but it will be worth it to have the longer light in the evening.

Wow - beautiful; thanks for sharing.

Deborah:

Marta, that picture is worthy of a bulb catalog!

Gorgeous flowers, and thanks for the reminder about daylight savings time, I can't wait.

I agree! Definitely bulb catalog worthy!

What a beautiful photo. I love purple crocus. And thanks for the head's up about the time change - I had no idea it was coming up so soon and I'm glad. Strange year with that and Easter both so early.

Anne:

Thanks Marta, that sure brightened up my dismal Nova Scotia day!!

I am not looking forward to DST myself. I absolutely detest getting up in the dark. I'd definitely sacrifice an evening hour to wake up with the sun beaming in my window.
