The crocuses just opened today.
Two blooms is all I have.
It is enough.
Two blooms.

The parade of flowers has begun.
More blooms will follow now.
The bees and the butterflies will return.

I waited until noon to run my errands.
I wanted to put the top down.

If the parade has begun at my house than it is
traveling all over my city.

"Hello, Spring!"

How exciting! Exciting, I say! Snow buildup is taking a long time to melt, here, so I'm really enjoying your spring birds, flowers and top down show!

The white crocus bloom is perfect. I love white flowers. They are so pure.

It was warm enough to have the roof down on your car????

It is cold wet and windy here....but still there are the flowers.

Whoooo hooooo...don't you just love em little flowers. They are so enchanting.

You aren't the only one with your top down today. It looked like a convertible parade here in our little city. I didn't know there were so many convertibles here. Ha. I was so envious.All I could do is roll down my windows. :)

Oh i miss seeing the crocus coming up. Can't have them here, they will become deer food!

So I'll just enjoy yours. Oh new poems at the blog.

Dear Sue,
I feel as if I have been waiting for blooms for a very long time!
Only two but it is a start! Crocuses are small flowers but they bring big joy! You had so much snow, I would think it would take a month to melt.
Open air motoring is very fun!
I look forward to top down birding!

Dear Cheryl,
I have an area I call my "Moon Garden". It is a small garden pond that has white flowers planted around it. I am very smitten with white flowers.
It did warnm up enough that I was comfortable with the top down!
Scooting around town with my top down was fun.
Your spring is earlier than mine. You have all sorts of flowers in bloom. As I drove around I did not see any daffodils in bloom yet. Like mine they are up about 6 inches. Buds have not formed. Maybe in a couple of weeks.
Rain and cold is coming in tonight.
Spring is here but we still could get a snow shower!

Dear Tom,
Early spring time is exciting. Seeing the different flowers and plants again always fills me with hope!
You will see wildflowers very soon.

Dear Lisa,
I bought my Sebring over ten years ago. I have been all over the U.S. and Canada in her. I, hopefully, will always drive a convertible. I love the feel of the wind and top down birding is the best!
Crocuses are tiny blooms that carry the hope of the season! Each day I will be out looking for more blooms. Almost time to clean flower beds.

Dear Cathy,
I have some of my crocuses in spots the deer cannot or will not get into! I took a break from forcing bulbs this year but will do some next winter. I will do more crocuses. I have an idea for where I could plant a few hundred. If I keep the crocuses near the house or the street the deer will leave them alone.
Oh, I am so glad you put up some new poems. I will pop over.

Dear Mary,
Top down birding is the best!

Dear Cat,
Happy Spring to you too!
Spring is quietly coming into her own. I love this time of year. I am treasuring each sunbeam!
