Hints of spring along our street:

First crocuses

Alder catkins


Primulas in an abandoned garden

Checkerboard. Blooms year-round.

And we found an alley-long collection of lichens; tomorrow's post.


  1. Already? How splendid.

  2. Interesting that you saw "yellow" today, and so did I. Something in the air, I wonder? Oh yeah.. Spring!

  3. Those mellow yellow colours are so pretty and a bit shy. Hope snow doesn’t come by in February as it has done the past few years or early bloomers will get a surprise.

  4. Snail, yes, already. And let it snow! The primulas and crocuses will keep on blooming, no matter how deep the snow on top.


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
