How we know spring is here...



Our Angel garden starts waking up..

From its long winter's nap...

shades of green with hints of color..

Our spring residents arrive
ready to settle in...

garden projects start popping out...

Apple bloosms are in full bloom...

The gardening boots are ready at the back door...
Dolce, knows when these come out .. his daily garden walks
are not far behind....

Stella enjoys sitting outside watching Mother Nature
as she wakes up our gardens...

SPRING is finally arrived in  here the country.

When I lived in the city my first signs of Spring having arrived ...
were the people sitting outside enjoying the sun on a restaurant or cafe patio.

what are the first signs of Spring for you?

Joining  linking parties ...

  1. Dolce and Stella ire too dang cute for words!
    The few things I planted last year are coming up after the rain and a few warm days we have had and it is so exciting!
    Your plants and flowers are beautiful.
    What is spring for me... hmmm... the birds hopping around, the smell in the air and tulips. Also- people just seem happier.
    Have a pretty day!

  4. Dearest Celia,

    Spring for me is when the magnolia tree blooms and all the daffodils...
    Love your garden spot with the interlacing of bleeding hearts and forget-me-nots! Forget-me-nots most times die here; too hot. But I LOVE them. Dolce with the rose boots; how precious!!! And Stella just being HAPPY, without demanding much... Life is good.

    Lots of love,

    Mariette

  6. What a lovely garden you have. And of course, your doggies are the cutest babies ever.

    When I see California Poppies blooming with their bright orange (that reminds me of Veuve Cliquot champagne) I know that spring has sprung!

    What's Dolce have in his mouth?

  9. What a lovely garden!!! Spring here for me is the blooming of trees and the first spring flowers. Spring is also a lot of sun and again being able to feel the warmth of it! Spring is also the chance to say hi to the neighbours again who have been hiding all winter! Hope you're having a fabulous week , too!! Thanks also for your so sweet comment on my post!

  10. I live in South Florida so my signs of spring are different than most - it's the rise in temperature that's the only true difference!

    Love your photos and glad spring/summer are heading back to your area ---

    Best Wishes (and new follower)

  13. I especially like your bleeding heart flowers.
    Spring for me begins when the forsythia are in their totally yellow glory.
