Theme Thursday - Spring

This week's theme is SPRING! And I am pleased to report that after much MUCH anticipation, it appears as though spring has actually come to stay around here. I have even packed away my sweaters....which I am sure is going to mean that a snow storm will pop up in the next few weeks.

But in any case, here are the signs of spring that I found this week:

I could go on and on, but for now I will refrain. Besides, I have to have something left for Project 365 this week!

For more visions of spring, check out what everyone else has over at Stacy's!

Oh, beautiful spring shots! I love all the buds and flowers. Yeah, you may have jinxed yourself by packing away the sweaters. ;)

I love that last shot of the bud. He looks like he's smiling, just waiting to open! :-)

Megan said...

lovely spring shots!

Jennifer said...

I think the 2nd is my most favorite! Though all of them are amazing shots!

carrie said...

Woohoo!! Spring! (Why did you pack the sweaters and then brag about it, though?! Surely jinxing yourself, my friend!)

I love the shots - and agree with Jennifer, the red bud (2nd) one is my fave....

I'm not a big flower photo person unless they move me or inspire me. That's what yours did, they are beautiful!!!

Jen said...

Great pictures! You can almost see the hope and happiness of spring popping off the screen. And I agree, the second picture, is my favorite!

Beautiful buds! Your pictures so remind me of spring just before the blooms overwhelm us all. Very pretty.
