Almost Spring!!!


In the Midwest, we might be lucky enough to see a crocus poke through the snow in late March. So I'm always amazed every February to see the early signs of spring. These photographs were taken a few weeks ago at the SC botanical gardens near Clemson University. I was looking for their annual amazing display of camellias, but the early frost had nipped those. There were plenty of other blooms to enjoy, though!

Though we have have had a couple of warm days recently, up here in NH, spring doesn't really start until the middle of April.

We still have a foot of snow on the ground! :)

I live in the south, too. We were happy to see that all our yellow crocuses came up, even through the snow. Sigh. I love spring.
