Signs of Spring

I took a long walk today for signs of spring. Saw a few flowers, but mostly I just saw green grass and green buds. Green is a welcome relief after so many months of snow and brown earth, but I really look forward to the vivid colors of spring. Here are some of the flowers I saw today:
This was the only "popcorn" tree I saw--it's a little early for that yet.
I saw quite a few daffodils,
although most that I saw were almost ready to bloom but not quite there yet

Hope you don't mind me linking to you from Kim's blog. I love pictures of flowers.

You did find some flowers, and they are beautiful. I agree, it is time for spring.

Wow, I can't believe how our spring is almost over here and yours is just beginning.
