Tiptoe Through the Tulips?

I ventured outside for a brief moment this afternoon.  Look what I found!


I don't know whether they're tulips or daffodils. Don't care though, I'm just glad they were there.  I was shocked and amazed because most of our property still looks like this:





Depressing, I know.  At least Sassy is free to roam. Sort of.

Yay, Sassy is free!

Look like tulips to me. We're not much ahead of you and they're talking about a big (yes, snow) storm on Friday.

We're in the high 30s/low 40s here these days. And I found something peeking up at church, which I put in my blog header. But I have no idea whether they are tulips of daffodils either. Let's see whose come up first. I'm guessing the ones at much church, but who knows?

Spring can't get here too fast for me right now. I'm ready. Loved winter. Now I want to love spring :)

Well first of all ... 100 points to anyone who can name ALL THE TYPOS in my last comment. Ahem. That is all ...

They're healthy looking tulips too, by the looks.

Spring will come Deb! It looks a bit warmer?

You must have felt like Lazarus walking out of the house for the first time in months!! Whose brother was Lazarus, Deb? A biblical question for you this fine Thursday morning.

Spring flowers pushing through on your side of the world only means another dreaded cold winter is on it's way to me!

This IS a day worth documenting. There is nothing more encouraging than seeing those first green lil sprouts---no matter what they are. I would take weeds about now.

Nature never ceases to amaze me. That you can have all that snow, and then 'pop' out come some flowers. Not to mention grass surviving? Astounding stuff! Look at lone Sassy, searching for grass perhaps.

yeah yeah, my tulips (and a hosta) have been up for weeks. I just hope this second round of frost and snow hasn't killed them!
