I have been struck down with a fever this week. Spring fever to be exact. Balmy days, singing birds, and blossoming trees and flowers have been calling my name.

There is something about seeing daffodils blooming that lifts me out of whatever winter funk I have been in.

Their cheery yellow faces tell me that yes, there may be cool weather ahead (after all it isn't officially spring yet), but we will not go back to those dark days of January and February.

There is a spring in my step as I am finding new blossoms every day.

They are literally bursting out everywhere.

What could be better than looking up at a spring sky through a tree bursting with pink blossoms.

Even Sammy, the usually shy neighborhood feral cat, came out to tell me how glad he is that spring is here.

Yep, I've definitely got it bad. I'm calling this new way of life spring-ing.

  1. Beautiful we are just now getting warmer temps. Hope to have flowers blooming here too soon :)

  2. I was also happy to see snowdrops, daffodils and crocuses out on my walk today although I didn't see the trees blooming yet. It's beautiful here today. Enjoy your day!

  3. I can't wait to start planting.

  4. Daffodils are only just now starting to poke green shoots out of the ground here in northern IL. And no buds on trees at all except for lilac bushes. I can't wait until everything is in full bloom! I love spring and seeing everything coming back to life. It never ceases to amaze me every year.

  5. I have Spring fever also!! I love the blooms that are everywhere now!

  6. It IS that time of year!! The whole earth is celebrating!!

  7. Those pink blossoms! =D Things are not blooming as much here but we are getting there... we saw a few things pop up and buds on the trees. I feel SO much happier seeing that too, can't wait until I start seeing sunflowers!

  8. Love your Daffodils. We don't see any around here and I miss them. This weekend is supposed to be dry and sunny. So thankful for the sun after so many storms and torrential downpours. Enjoy your weekend dear friend. I'll be thinking of you as I work out in my garden too.

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  9. What pretty blooms! It's been pretty here lately and a nice time to get outside! Happy weekend! Hugs, Diane

  10. Lovely post, Laura. Thanks, too, for your visit! Susan

  11. Yes, Spring is just about officially here! I've had Spring fever too lately. The only damper on Spring is the day light savings time (that I disagree with) and anticipating allergy season soon.

  12. Oh, lovely bright! Mine max. 2 cm high...

  13. The first daffodils also lift me up... and the cats seem very happy as well that the rain now stops every now and then!

  14. Your spring is way ahead of mine! We had nice weather this weekend but now it's blustery and cold - boooo!

  15. Love your pics Laura. I'm suffering from Spring Fever as well. Have a great week!!
