A Swell Day...

After a week of heavy fog,
the sun popped out this morning...
 

we popped outside too,
eager to soak up a few rays...
 
dry out a bit...
 



while the garden is pretty much
a lot of brown...
 



 
But,
there are
some swell things happening...
 

 
the Magnolia's furry catkins...


 
the blooms of my
 New dawn Viburnum...
 
are still sweet,
but some have yellowed around the edges...
 



in my short
stroll around the garden...
 
the Crocus went from the tight buds in the first shot,
to these bright spots,
in a sea of brown...
 

 
 Hope for an early Spring?
 
maybe,
but, Winter has yet to stop by for a visit...


 
for now I will enjoy my little taste of Spring
and I hope you have too...
 
Thanks for joining me on this Swell Day....

Lovely to see the flowers of Spring, we can't see the ground yet. The snow banks are dirty with bird seeds. The squirrels seem to be the clean up crew this past few days. I need to put fresh stuff out but hope they can eat up some of the spills. Loved your pictures, some great shots
