A promise

Looking out the window this morning, I noticed something looked slightly different.
 
Something new...
  
Something with a promise of Spring!
 
and Happy (almost) Spring.

Spring is soo in the air! I saw geese today headed my way instead of off to warmer places. And I feel i should admit- I always try to "force" budding branches like that in a vase, but I'm never successful. They either do nothing or turn moldy :(

And it's a very welcome sight after this long hard winter, isn't it? The blue sky is a bonus, too!

These shots are almost a love story. I love the way you captured them!

I tried to point out the buds to the boys yesterday. Anthony got it right away, but Domo is still too young to get the concept of spring.

Lovely shots! Have a happy Monday chica :)

That is an exciting find! I've been photographing buds, also, hoping to see some significant growth. None! It's making me nuts. Your buds are more hopeful.
