Photostory Friday: waiting .....

This past weekend, during some gorgeous eighty degree weather, I noticed some little green shoots sprouting up around the trees in the backyard. We moved here in the summer....so this was a little sweet surprise. I can't wait to see what these will be! I stepped out just after noon to take these shots. I noticed it was getting very chilly.
Livi has already found a teeny tiny little flower to pick. I have a tiny "mom's" vase...but even that is too big for her baby blossom. I usually float these in tiny salt cellars. By now, I am thinking, "It is really cold out here." Livi is starting to shiver.....I tell her, "Run inside, baby. I'll be in to turn on the fireplace for you." I was eyeing the tree's blooms out front and wanted to take just a few shots.


I walk over to the front of the house. The wind is really starting to pick up. Now I am shivering so much I can't even focus. This shot is so blurry as a result. But there is a little bit of bright pink and green and yellow. Whew hoo....waiting for spring.


just a bit of a PS....it is now snowing. There is probably two inches on the ground. Remind me why I wanted seasons??

Soooo close!! And yet so far away (at least that's how it felt this morning with the wind whipping at me).

I still can't believe it's snowing there!! It's rainy, cold, and dreary here. I don't know which is worse...at least snow is pretty! What happened to our 80 degrees from last weekend?!
I think maybe your surprise flower is an iris. Maybe.

It's crazy isn't it! We had the same last week. 80 one day and 6 inches the next! But you know, I'd miss it if I left. lol!

Yay for signs of Spring!

I too am SO over winter this year. We had a nice "warm" 50 degrees last Saturday and by Monday it was -15 and a skiff of snow covering the ground! We were below zero all week until toady and we are at a balmy 28!

Missy said...

I am loving all the spring pictures I'm finding PSF today. Your little one finding the teeny flowers is just precious.

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

Oh wow, you are definitely on your way to spring! SUCK IT WINTER!

Susie said...

Seasons simply give us something to look forward to--at least that is what I keep telling myself. sigh.
I hope your flowers didn't die with the snow. I LOVE spring flowers!

Jen said...

Yay for Spring finally coming!

"Remind me why I wanted seasons??"

Because you wanted Fall. :) Unfortunately, you don't get a really colorful Fall without at least a touch of Winter. :)

sounds like a quick turn around of weather. you got some nice shots while out there....except for the shivering one. :)

have a great weekend.

On a limb wiht Claudia said...

I bet that snow didn't effect these things - at least it didn't here.... not your snow, silly. When it's snowed here! Sheeezzzz ! ;)

I bet the flowering trees will be so beautiful.

Gotta love the relentless defiance of life. I'm counting the days until it springs from the earth in my neck of the woods. The snow's almost all gone, so it should be any moment now!
