It is so cold and wet and dreary

But I am seeing some signs of spring.  Unfortunately, it is just to cold for me to go out in my yard to clean up the winter debris.  I am hoping and praying we get some warm soon.

My beautiful Cherry tree in full bloom.

I have never been real successful with my Hosta. 
Maybe this year.

My Clematis. A gorgeous white bloom with a very light lavender blush.  For some reason, it did not bloom last year. 
I am hoping it was just resting and will do better this 

What is more spring like than a boy in a tree?

Vinca under my swing.
 The gorgeous orange poppy my mother gave me years ago.  It has almost overtaken my yard, but I just cannot bear to pull much of it out.  I have given a few plants to some of my siblings, but to pull out just for the sake of being rid of them,  NEVER!!!

The miniature maple outside our bedroom window.
Oh, how I love Spring, the symbolism of the new birth and the promise of continued life.
It is God's promise to us of a continuation of His Creation.

The pictures are great. Looks like spring is starting there for you. We have been having nice warm weather but today it is a little cooler. My azaleas are all in bloom and they are quite pretty. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Beautiful pictures. We're hoping spring will show up here on the East side of the Cascades this week. We're tired of the cold and rain too!

I can not wait for REAL spring weather either! my hostas that look like yours grow just about anywhere I have put them, shade & sun! I would love to have some of that poppys seeds to see if they would grow. I have a few 'heirloom' family plantings that I cherish too.
