same at my house. i know there's a bit more winter to come but i have such an urge to rake out the flower beds ever so gently. i just may do it.

snow?? Down here we have fields weaving blankets of wild flowers, awaiting the Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes. There are some really pretty flowers already, but it's not officially Spring umtil Bluebonnets make their debut.

I remember seeing the crocus peek out of snow and the thrill of the first sign of Spring. Enjoy.

I have the whole flower already...but I am in Texas! They appeared before I even suspected they were there!! I like the thrill of 'anticipation'!

That's a great effect; the snow looks more like shards of glass or crystals. Nice pic.

As if diamond and pearl are spread around. A sight to be envied.

No signs of live yet here -- just a matted mess from all of the snow. But I'm thinking next week will prompt some plant activity. :)

The foliage creeping through the snow is a beautiful thing. I'm seeing the same here in chicago. Your picture says it all. Wonderful photography.

I really like this picture. I makes me think of all the things below the surface about to burst loose. Metephorically speaking of course.
