Vermont Welcomes Spring

It’s officially springtime in Vermont and after a beautiful weekend of solid vest-weather {and our first wedding of 2011!} it’s seriously snowing right now.  Vermonters should know that we cannot get ahead of ourselves when spring teases us with her first appearance.

While I was out and about checking on things in my garden yesterday I snapped a few signs of spring.  When I showed my husband my photos he said, “You know it’s going to snow, right?”

Crocus mark the change of the season.  An emblem of youthful gladness.

Daffodils break through the surface of the soil and leaf debris. 

You can almost see the flowers eager to bloom.

The branches of the Japanese pussy willow are curly and wild.  One of my favorites for sure.

Also called ‘fantail pussy willow’ these willows are taller than I am.

These are lilac buds.  Lilacs are one of our most highly anticipated blooms in Vermont. 

What signs of spring have you noticed?  I’ll have some pics from our first wedding of 2011 for you tomorrow!
