It Looks Like Spring

1. The tortoise wakes from a long winter's nap.
2. The potatoes are growing and need to be covered with more dirt.
3. The chives from last summer are multiplying and getting pretty purple blossoms.
4. The celery is growing, slowly.
5. The zucchini and cantaloupe seeds are sprouting.
6. The peach tree is covered in pretty pink blossoms
7. Trader Joe's has tulips in stock.
8. Peppers from last year are still producing edible fruit (we've had a mild winter).
9. Random sunflower seeds have grown to 4 feet high.
10. We are planning weekends of readying the garden plots for planting.

What signs of spring (fall if you are down under) are popping up where you live?
Thanks for stopping by,

Autumn in Melbourne is about crisp, cool mornings (and evenings) and sunny, warm days! The best of both worlds!

I live in Brisbane, Australia, and we should be heading into Autumn but it is not quite here yet. Still lots of rain and humidity to follow. I would love to live somewhere which has a more defined change of seasons.

The best thing for me in spring is waking up really early in the morning next to an open window and listening to the birds singing. Then I know it can't take very long anymore to the season we live again mostly in our garden.

Spring is finally here in Ireland, with sunny daffodils & early morning birdsong

Daffodils everywhere. baby lambs in the field across the street. Putting the washing outside for the first time in ages. Love it all!

Do you really have a tortoise? That's awesome! :) when it snows one Sunday and is supposed to be 70 by the weekend is a good sign of spring. Or in other words, the crazy Utah weather. That and being reminded that the park next to our house turns into an aviary. I've never hard so many birds in one spot before. Lol.

I noticed some tulips waking up in the council flower bed I pass on my way to work this morning. We had a sunny weekend, but not so much this week

We're weeks and weeks behind you, but I do have snowdrops and crocus flowering. The daffodils are about 3 inches high and the very first tips of tulip leaves are up....and the birds are back and singing again!

Annabella said...

Orange blossom on the trees although kids are coming and bashing it down to sell...grrrr. I wore flip flops too this week and it`s much warmer! Lovely images Di.xx

Autumn in the tablelands of New South Wales is beautiful. The pistachio trees are starting to turn various shades of red and yellow. The nights are getting crisp and night falls earlier.

The birds are back - singing loud and proud. The grass is greening up nicely - and the morning drives to work are spectacular with the mist and fog in low lying areas. The ice is gone off the bay....My boots are shoved in a corner of the mud room and I don't have to wear layers to work either....
