This morning there was, finally, a break in the rain and wind, so I took the dog for a long walk and took my camera along with the hope of capturing some signs that Spring was on it's way!
What better sign than the bright yellow-gold daffodil......
Oregon's rain doesn't do Camellia blossoms much good.....about the time the bush is in full bloom a big rain storm will hit and ruin the flowers but they are so lovely while they last, it is worth it.
We walked over a mile, all the while I was diligently looking for a white Candytuft, or Iberis, with no luck.....until I was almost home....when I, finally spotted one, in my next door neighbor's front yard.....geez!
Spring would not be spring without a few Dandelions......it's too early for Daisies!
Western Oregon has seen more rain than usual this winter while many parts of the country have been buried in snow, I think we are all ready for spring and some sunshine.
I hope the snow is melting where you live and we can all start to enjoy the fresh green sprouts and the oh so distinctive smells and sights of spring!
It was so encouraging and uplifting today to see "earth laugh in flowers"!
"But each spring....a gardening instinct, sure as sap rising in the trees, stirs within us. We look about and decide to tame another little bit of ground". (Gantt)
