It was one of those March days
When the sun shines hot
and the wind blows cold

when it is summer in the light
and winter in the shade.
(from Great Expectations by Charles Dickens)

Don't you just love it when you wake up to one of those very special March days that make you certain spring is right around the corner.  We had one of those days this week.  It sent me out in search of signs of spring. 

First there was the 60 degree reading on the outdoor thermometer...

Then there were the daffodil buds standing tall in the garden...

Close by there were the first crocus blossoms...

And buds on one of my early blooming bushes...

In the vegetable garden you can see garlic popping through the soil....

Yes, it is March...and signs of spring are showing up all around.  What signs do you see in your neck of the woods?
