Signs of Spring-Finally!

 With thoughts for healing for Japan, I am off to do what I can do in our corner of the world....

                                  “The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician.  
                                   Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind.”

                                              Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus quotes

We are finally getting signs of Spring.  Yesterday and this morning I walked around (and my youngest son did too) and took some crocus pictures, while looking over what needs to be done.


                                           I found some crocus after the rain we had yesterday morning
                                                          This is one of my son's shots
         We tried to get the rain drops left on the flower but even with macro setting it was hard. 

                                          Today brings sun and nearly 60 degrees at 1pm.

This is in a wooded area in the back.  One of the gardens I am planning on completely changing over.


The whole area was alive with the movement of bees...busy and happy after a long winter, to finally find something to collect.......
The purple crocus is in the cactus garden.  These cactus simply jump out at you form even a foot away, so they are cleared around, and handled VERY carefully....


                                     My oldest son has the day off, so we are looking forward to a warm and pleasant day together...a little sprucing here and a little sprucing there....

I am going to scout around and see if I can find anything to add to a salad yet!

Just to let you know..this computer crashed on me 3 times while I was writing this post...(and too several tries each time to restart!)  Glad I saved it!!

See you later,


  1. The bees are happy at my place too. I noticed they are everywhere. There is so much for them this time of year not to mention the flowers need them. Pretty crocus. I love purple ones but they look good with the yellow. Have a good weekend.

  2. Pretty pics of bits if spring! Your sons got a good eye! :]
    Yesterday was warm sunny here and lots of busy bees, but today we are back to cold and rainy.
    Thanks for stopping by!
    Have a wonderful day!

  3. Yep...still March..we get back to cold starting tonight! Is a nice taste of what's to come though.
