Wow!...first. Actually spring is here and the weather is whether...sometimes windy, sometime wet, sometimes warm, often cool, sometimes dry, and sometimes quiet.

Spring is here. The five foot piles of snow in our garden have shrunk to a modest two feet. Roads are clear and the fields are turning into lakes, since the ground is still frozen and there's nowhere for the water to go. Forecasts promise that the next few days will be above freezing. Time to change to summer tyres and soon to start sowing some seeds on the window sill.

Yep, Spring in the Mountain zone. Here it is defined by Winter and Summer trading weeks until late May, with lots of wind added.

Definitely spring - all the perennials are popping up, the birds are making a racket, and it has been raining steady for about two weeks. And again today. My world is starting to get that green washed look to it.

Here in Houston there are tomatoes on the vine, the peppers, eggplant, beans, blackberries and cucumbers are blooming, the potatoes are two feet high, the pansies are tapering off. Flea bane is in full bloom as well as great drifts of Pink Ladies. Blue Bonnets are producing seed, Red buds now have leaves instead of flowers and the peach tree has inch size fruit. The irises and amaryllis are in bloom alongside snapdragons. Dianthus, Roses and Scabiosa are being their reliable selves. Bridal wreath and azalea are finished for the season. Confederate jasmine is loaded with buds but the red honeysuckle has been blooming for weeks.

Bonehead, maybe we could install a pipeline and get some of that water down here to Texas. We really need rain.

The ground had finally dried out enough to to till and plow. Then yesterday we got 2-1/4 inches of rain dumped on us in about 6 hours. Field will be draining for a couple weeks before anything can be done in the garden now.

Last night I took all the blankets off the bed because the house temperature was 77F, tonight it's going down into the 30's again - so on will go the blankets!

I wish it would make up it's mind - is it spring yet, or is it still winter?

Yes, Spring is here, and she's a flirtatious lass. Rain today; sun yesterday, rain the day before, and snow the day before that! But although the barometer is low today and the wind is a-blowin', there a warmth in the air that promises the emerging tulips and daffodils that they WILL have their day.
Just hang on! ;-)

Very fickle weather. Every day seems to be different. Was hard to vote because we've had Spring, Summer, & Winter all within a few days -- sometimes within a 24 hour period. Sometimes I start out wearing a coat & carrying an umbrella & end up in shorts wearing sunglasses & sunscreen by afternoon. Robins & snowbirds seem confused too.

It has been above freezing at night for over a week, but there isn't any green to see yet. I do so very much appreciate everyone's pictures of spring things. This has been a long winter...

There was frost on my car and the ground two days ago, and then yesterday it hit 90 degrees. I am slightly confused about my current season.

It's true the weather is nutsoid, but spring is here; Yesterday my neighbor asked me to help him hold the buck sheep while he took a HUGE tick off it's scrotum. Never a fun thing.

It was winter two days ago. Now it's summer. Guess yesterday was spring.

Saw my first owl of the year last week. It was really huge and had a nice call. Haven't seen some of the small (nocturnal) animals recently that I used to see around all the time. The owl was probably hungry.

We have had a beautiful spring for about a month or so...think summer is here now. Was 91 today and the AC is running. At least the pollen is finally about gone. We only have about 7 months of summer to go LOL

Here in Arkansas, 72067, it has been unusually warm. Plants and trees are in full bloom and even planted seeds are poking their little heads thru the soil. My husband and I live in an apartment with small front and back yards but we have lots of container gardening out back and a small stretch of in ground garden across the front. The problem is the soil here. It's hard packed clay and sand. I have physical limitations with little help. My hubby helps as he can on weekends, but for the most part, gardening is my choice and mostly my responsibility. I like to read anything about gardening especially from those with limitations. I found that I can no longer do a regular big vegtable garden and have opted for container gardening. We have a fig tree that produced fruit last year. 2 Blueberry bushes that should produce this year. We have grown cucumbers from hanging baskets for several years now with great results. Tomatoes have been less productive than in a regular garden though. Sweet and hot peppers in containers are prolific producers. I dice and freeze then for use in winter and considering they cost $1.25 each this month at Walmart, I think we will save lots more this winter.
My other love is habitat for insects, frogs and birds. The picture here is our first little frog this spring, in our blueberry bush.

It comes and goes here and we are getting plenty rain in between. But the wild flowers are blooming and the fruit trees are also. Things are greening up and today is a beautifyl day. I am working in the garden and planting taters.

It is working on it. This spring has been cold then hot several times. Officially, it is spring, but the temp today was in the 60's and tomorrow is supposed to be in the 50's. Luciee {;^)
