"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

In search of Spring...

...last weekend, after the snow had melted, I took a little walk around the back yard in search of any signs of Spring.  I have been suffering with Spring fever for several weeks now and hoped I would find a cure, or at least a little bitty hope.

 leaves left in the grass long gone from this world...
 tree branches from the last wind storm...
 the last vestiges of a hydrangea blossom...

 to the moss that has taken over the lawn...

to the bud-less branches waiting for the sun...

to the un-raked leaves still laying in the yard..oh, wait...what is that I see...there...that little sprout of green, could it be, could it??  Oh my yes...it's a Daffodil, there next to a weed.   Yeah, there is hope.


  1. Oh my your blog is simple and Beautiful Sweetie.. Not even sure how I found it now.. Somehow through the PINK Saturday event and a click here and there.
    Yes my Sweet Friend, there is hope.

    May you feel His Presence throughout your weekend and new week..and
    May His blessings continue on you and yours... Amen and Amen~~~Hugs Dena

  2. I saw it! The little green plant! WAHOO!!!!

    Spring must be right around the corner.. :-)

  3. What lovely photos. You found new life coming through the cold and long winter. Sometimes we have to look hard.... but it's always there. There is always a new beginning somewhere.

    Have I told you I love your new blog header photo. It's just beautiful.

  4. Yep, I see that daffodil peeking out there...I truly believe you have found a tiny sign of spring. Hold on sweet JoJo it is coming.

    In answer to your comment on my blog. Yes, it is hard sometimes to do yard work and other things, but we have to keep doing what we can. It hurts sometimes but I still try to keep going. I hope you will feel well enough to do all you want to do once spring does arrive. Hugs

  5. You are about 6 weeks ahead of us! Nice to see those daffs, I bet! Ah, the west coast climate....brings back lots of good memories!
    Have a great Sunday Grandma.

  6. Yeah! I actually have a couple of daffodils that have bloomed! The snow covered them up this week, but they were there nonetheless.

  7. snowed again here and now it rains and melts the snow and all is slushy and dreary and cold. glad to see a sign, even if it isn't in my yard!

  8. We still have snow on the ground, but the weatherman says that it will be in the 50's this week, so maybe we will see some signs of spring here. I need that! Thanks for sharing a little "hope" and some GREEN with us!

    Keep resting so that when spring "jumps out" you will feel "springy" yourself. Thinking of you.

  9. Beautiful photographs! So ready for spring.

  10. We had moss and daffodils, too. Spring is almost here. :)

  11. Spring will be here soon! Here's to the daffodils!

  12. Great photos, jojo!

    Still no signs of the daffodils here in Weldon Spring, but then again, I haven't scratched through the dead leaves to search for them, either.

    Seek and ye shall find, I guess.

    Thanks for the tease of Spring!

  13. I was sitting here thinking about how I needed to go out with the camera and see what I could find in the way of 'spring's a comin'' and I came to check on you and what did I find?! Great minds run along the same path, birds of a feather and all that jazz...

    And isn't it amazing how the only thing that seems to cure spring fever is bursting buds on the trees or daffodil shoots pushing up out of the ground, robins busy hunting worms... well, you get my drift.

    Have a good week, my friend.


  14. how lovely! a little green plant!

  15. Love daffodils--but oh! I can't stand hot weather...so I'm torn.

  16. Now that right there is exciting!!! How I long for Spring time! ~Lili

  17. I'm with Helen. Just one little green sprout of something brings such a big smile to our face.

    Well except all those green onions I have coming up in my yard LOL
