#SOLSC21: Signs of Spring

What are your signs of spring? Where do you look?

I’ve been watching the green sprout in the flower beds. But then the growth seems to slow to a milli-inch per week when the nights drop below freezing.

On Sunday, this is what I saw in the herb garden.

Two colors of crocus.

And the final sign of spring, the NCAA National Wrestling Champions.

What signs of spring do you see? Where do you look?

  1. Mud is usually the first sign of spring for me. I can feel the difference in the ground as it thaws.

    1. Oh. My. Yrs. The mud was atrocious two weeks ago!

  2. It is so fun to see the NEWNESS that comes with Spring. I love the photos you added. And of curse, b-ball is a staple of springtime, too!! Sadly, my UVA team lost.

    1. That continuity as plants emerge and rebloom. Disappointing b-ball today!

  3. For me the first sign of spring is always seeing the catkins on the pussy willow.

    1. I see very few pussy willows in Iowa. Wonder if our weather is not conducive so if someone has them on their menu.

  4. On my walk this morning I noticed the beginnings of my favorite weeds. Is that weird? I look forward to the yellow sorrel actually.

    1. Hmm. I will have to look up yellow sorrel. I wonder if it’s what I see in KY?
