It's Finally Here!...

After much anticipation I do believe that SPRING has come to the hill!

Trees are budding...


My driveway is completely dry...

Green shoots are enjoying the sun ...

The pine trees are getting ready to produce that dreaded yellow pollen. I know, I know... it's nature's way!

And I've spent two days raking...!

Today I start on an even bigger task,...washing my house! Stay tuned!

Spring! Our neighbor said just the same - I just called up yesterday to see how things were! So now, you'll have TONS of photos for us, won't you?! Washing the house - doesn't sound particularly fun. Happy Spring on the hill!

How wonderful, Cedar!!
We still have some snow on the ground here, but I'm hoping that we'll be seeing some green soon.

Finally....I don't know that I have anticipated spring as much as I have this year but I am sure glad it is here...18*C tomorrow!
Have a great weekend.

How pretty! It's good to finally see those signs from your area. Now washing your house... that's getting a little carried away.

If I can come and stay with you, I'll help you wash your house! I just love that road and the fact that you're surrounded by mountains. You know that's my DREAM don't you?!

Definitly spring and all the things you left at autumn is popping up. It's a lot of work to be done. It will be nice to follow!

Yep, the pollen is terrible here as well. I can't wait to see how in the world you wash a house!

I am feeling it too! I even wore my flip flops today even though there was a little bit o' frost on the ground this morning :)

After a VERY late spring, there are signs she has arrived all around...I LOVE your photography. There is such a feel of...tranquility, excitement, joy, and warmth about them.

Thank you for sharing your springtime with us!
