Signs of Spring

Though yesterday was cloudy and rainy, I decided to go outside. I have been tired of being cooped up, fighting the cold. And of course, I usually end up going out despite the cold and rain, anyway.

 The daffodils are a clear sign of Spring, and they are popping up everywhere!

 Some have even already opened...

 Rain, another sign of the Blooming Season and it is so refreshing!

 I don't know what these sprouts are, but they are a beautiful red.

 Green leaves and a broken brick.

 Even the tiniest flowers are opened. These little blossoms are a beautiful, electric blue.

 The trees and bushes also are beginning to have little, baby leaves and buds.

Here is a pic I got while marveling at the signs of Spring. Layla loved it so much, so I just went ahead and threw it in. It is a door knob of an old abandoned house...

The grass withers and the flowers fade but the word of our God stands forever. Isaiah 40:8
 I thought of this verse while exploring the wonders of our Creator. The pretty daffodils and the lush green grass will, in fact fade and wither one day. But God and His Word will stand forever. It is a nice thought. Life can seem so short and fragile but God has always, and will always be there.

Creatures of the Air

Today was beautiful, the sun was out and there wasn't a cloud in the sky! I decided to take my zoom lens out again and see what little birdies might be out.

 Proud robin...

 Spring is certainly just around the corner! The trees are full of buds and robins are everywhere....
 A bit of black and white for ya....
Cute little woodpecker!

I am so thankful it's finally warming up! I just hope it'll stay that way. Sometime soon we would like to go to our local conservation center, so that's a great photo opportunity!

What did you think of these pics?
