This week's challenge is spring is coming selected by Lew. Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.
...but it's not here yet. I live in the Chicago area, and we have had very few days of moderate temps. And the snow this season... we were really hit hard with the white stuff!! I had to dig through the archives for spring pics because we do not have much to show yet for the coming of spring. These were assembled from some of my pics taken around this date, but two years ago.
|The call of the Redwing Blackbirds ushers in the spring in these parts.|
|These Crocuses are among the first visual signs of spring.|
|More Crocuses. These were in front of my house.|
|A budding Magnolia.|
|When spring arrives, we love to visit the local parks.|
|And kids can hang out in each others' back yards again!|
My son made the cardboard shield and I made the cardboard battle axe.
|It's conference season I think for these Ring Billed Seagulls.|
|Stalking Chickadees at my front window.|
...Or is he stalking me?
|Mallard love is in the air, n'est-ce pas?|
|The American Robin sings its pretty songs deep in these tree branches.|
