Signs that a change is coming are slowly popping up here in the Ohio Valley. The birds are doing their famous spring dance. The hardiest of flowers are showing their colors and the others are starting to bud. The old of winter is starting to fall off and fade away. The air is changing. Mother Nature is pumping her giant air freshener into the air, filling the sky with fresh new smells. All of these signs are saying that soon spring will be here. I’m ready. Are you?
- White with green or yellow hearts-Snowdrop Galanthus or Spring snowflake Leucojum vernum
- All Yellow-Winter aconite Eranthis hyemalis
Thanks for sharing your awesome pictures and blog posts.
Welcome. Thanks for viewing them.
More than ready. Now, I’m just hoping I start seeing those types of flowers around me.
I am not sure if they are pretty weeds are flowers but I like them.
Oh my green hearts is amazing! SO pretty! Look at those cute little flowers. They are babies! lol. Great captures!

Thanks for the reblog.
oh oh oh. these shots are so inspiring and full of poetry. love.
YAY, some color!
I like Seymour.
Thanks. He was a character. 🙂
I’m so ready! Gorgeous spring images!
Thank you very much.
I adore the contrast of the color against the black, white, and gray.
Dare I say brilliant?
Please do. Thanks. 🙂
What delightful images! I love the BW background with the color image of the flower. . . what is that called, I forget?
Anyway, do you know what kind of flowers they are? They are dainty, delicate, a beautiful carpet of white glory!
I don’t know Sandra. I’m hoping someone on here will.
My hubby the botanist would say, “they are white,”. 🙂
They are snowdrops.
So attractive in their vibrant tones against the pale. We have so many spring hints and beauties here in Oregon! Glad you are finding them, too.
Thanks Cynthia. Oregon is beautiful.
I love “Green Hearts” and of coarse the Robin! Great Flower Pics!
Thx so much. 🙂
Signs of spring – so encouraging! We are looking (in vain!) for signs of autumn.
Hope springs eternal.
Living where you are you have such definite changes to the seasons. I’ve never lived anywhere that has that – we just have really hot or cold (nothing like the kind of cold you get with snow). It must be very reviving to see the signs of spring coming after the freezing cold of winter. I love the way you have shown that in these photos.
Thanks so much Elaine.
After 6 months, we have no change…it’s still white out there…
Great pictures, enjoy your spring!
It will come! 🙂
I’m so ready for springtime. Winter, I love you, but I’ve had enough of the four-inch-thick coats. Beautiful pictures.
Wow. What a life .. Fantastically captured.
Thank you… 🙂
Snowdrops must be ater in Ohio than th UK. I posted them in early feb….lovely. Thank you
Must be. That’s interesting though.
sign of spring. Love the flowers and the colour and composition of each picture very much. It make a wonderful framed picture to hang on wall in living room, this is a lovely series. Well done, buddy!
You’re welcome, when I move to a new place I will ask your permission to letting me print few these lovely pictures.
spring around the corner!!! Love it! xxx
Me too. 🙂 x
Beautiful shots, I just wish spring would get here a bit sooner… freezing cold temperatures and snow here in the South East of the UK.
Sorry to hear. It’s turned a bit cold again here too.
I love the way you captured new born. It is as if I can see the flowers opening up.
Thanks!! 🙂 Glad you enjoy that one.
Beautiful shots…stunning! 🙂
Thank you so much.
No Fair! you have flowers!!!!
A few. 🙂 Thanks.
Beautiful! Love the black and white/color contrast. Bring on springtime… and some sunshine please! 🙂
Our scenery has completely changed .. I have the snow now and my snowdrops … was laying very weak on the ground yesterday after a tough weekend .. and today I woke up to snow … that yellow flower is the first sign of spring over here – Eranthis hyemalis – we call it – Vintergäck – translated into engl. “winter aconite” Does snowdrops grow wild over there ???
In some parts of UK and Ireland daffodils grow wild ..
Fantastic Spring Gallery – my favorite must be the Vintergäck.
Wow, snow. We are actually getting flurries today and it’s a bit cold but I am sure in a few days it will warm up again. It’s up and down here this time of year.
We still have at least 5 feet of snow in our front yard. I am so ready for spring!! Wonderful pictures. Making me crave grass and flowers and warmth!
Five feet??? Five feet? wow.
Yep, it’s ugly. I really hope it’s gone by June!
A bit of green and color. Spring must be near in the Ohio Valley.
I’m ready…I’m just not sure that nature is up to speed this year in Scotland!
Well it will catch up. 🙂
Indeed, and as always in its own good time 🙂
Those colors make me so happy 🙂
Beautiful!! Thank goodness changeis coming. I cannot wait for flowers and warm weather!
Yes, although we have a bit of snow again tonight.
Absolutely love the flower pictures. Your splash of color really grabs your atention. Incredible as always.
Thank you Meghan.
The top photo is my favourite. Very nice indeed. Well done! 😉
Thanks so much. :)/
Loving the dancer.., Seymour! And the splash of purple!
I hope you don’t mind if I reblog your link on my 2nd reblog page?
No, go ahead. 🙂 Thanks.
I love this time of year and the first signs are so exciting. May I reblog this post?
Of course. Thanks.
