OK spring is here and everything is bursting into life. We got snow the first day of May, then we had one week of wonderfully warm weather and I could practically see everything grow. Now it's been really cold for the last 2 weeks with temps close to freezing at night and daytime highs in the low 40's.

Here are a few photos of spring's progress:

Here, it goes on for months, depending on how you want to define spring.

Rann, the snow picture in the middle of the lovely blooms took me by suprise and made me laugh! I love all the color starting to pop!

Aww, a rainbow! Do you get a lot of rain, or rainbows?

The daffodils are so cheerful and make a big splash! I'd love to have more myself.

I love seeing your plants :o)
