No hay nada como la fuerza de la primavera, también reflejada como en esta buena foto.
Un saludo, Ángel

How weird! We get these crocuses downunder - but here they're called 'Autumn Crocuses'! Go figure ...

I can almost feel the warmth of the sunlight, the turtle seems to be enjoying it too!

Just wonderful and colorful. All comes slowly this year.

And here in Scituate we are hearing the peppers singing in the night air - spring has sprung!

It's about time spring got here! Thank you, Lulu!

Crocuses are some of my favourites, these are lovely, beautiful light!

Lol, I wonder if turtle isn't a bit adventurous! Dunno about yours but our temperatures are still very wintery. 36° this morning, just a few more in the daytime!

Love the lilac crocuses, so pretty. Does this mean we can officially (finally) call it Spring? Side note: the forecast calls for snow in Paris on Thu! Fortunately in DC, the temps rise to 60+ next week... so Happy Spring to you my friend :)

YAY! Crocuses!

Very beautiful crocuses!!! I have them in my garden.

I feel how they enjoy sunny warm spring day.

And I love a turtle! She is quiet big, I think.

Great pictures and very colorful!

Perfect title! It really does seem that Spring is in your neck of the woods. Looks wonderful. I am ready for some of that here!

It'll still be awhile before our crocuses and turtles are out and about!

Antjas said...

Thanks for visiting. The crocuses give us hope for warmer days ahead! I must say, that turtle has an extremely long neck.

Thanks everyone! Yes, I think that turtle's also enjoying itself. ciel - I see our forecast low is 28F tomorrow, sigh... Kaya - I remember your crocus captures - they were so so beautiful! These are just the homely, wild variety:)

The first hardy spring blooms are the very best Lulu, they give us hope that eventually, although it doesn't seem like it, that spring is actually on the way..gorgeous crocuses!
