First signs of spring..

I have been going on walks...
long walks, short walks.....
I pass through pretty homes with big yards..
and I cannot help but be filled with ENVY..
yes ENVY.

(purple crocus at the Spielplatz)

Every yard is bursting with blooms of purple and yellow crocuses and snowdrops!!
And why envy?
cause I have no yard of my own.
I wonder, what is it like to peek out of your window and notice the change of seasons happening right in front of your eyes? IN YOUR YARD..
Do they feel a sense of excitement at the first burst of color ?
or is it just another season of Spring? I wonder...

(Schneeglöckchen or snow drops)

Yard or no yard,
I delight at natures marvel and head on over to the local spielplatz for the much awaited pictures of Spring!!


  1. Hi May, Found your blog thru April's. Love your photos. I have a few flowers peeking out also in my yard.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Thank you for stopping by Kimberly and am glad you like what you see.

  2. Love your photos, May! There are signs just like that in our yard! We've had temps. this whole week in the lower 80's. I'm in heaven!

    1. Right now, we too are in heaven. The weather's excellent!!!

  3. Lovely signs of spring, but I totally understand that you want a yard of your own.

  4. Love the signs of Spring! We have nothing yet but our neighbors are bursting with color! Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Try to look with wonder, not envy....maybe next year you could try some bulbs in pots perhaps?

    1. I envy the little patch of land only..:D and truly wonder at the miracles of nature, never cease to do that. I did grow a lot of tulips in pots last year, planted the bulbs again this autumn. They took the brunt of the severe cold wave in Jan and all of them froze to death.

  6. Wonderful fresh and strong colors. Beautiful !
    Kind regards, Synnöve


I love it when you stop by to say a few words...
