Harbinger


For a good many years, I lived in the suburbs of New York City.  In the late winters, while driving along the roads, I'd keep my eyes eagerly peeled for forsythia bushes.  And when I spotted these bright yellow blossoms, I'd know spring was coming very soon.  It didn't matter if the gray gloomy skies and frosty air said otherwise.  Seeing these flowers made me so happy that I planted several bushes in my garden, a decision I later came to regret, because they are such overly enthusiastic growers.  Still, I have a fondness for forsythia and miss looking for them.

You made me smile and even chuckle. The look out for spring! Love the tiny details of life and your spy girl looking for spring. So cute!

It certainly is like that here.... lots of snow still, but melting daily. Buds on trees and shrubs can be seen, with a spy glass ;-)

Lovely Spring to you Bella.

Well now I have to look out one of these back windows to see if the yellow bush is saying anything here in Central New York because the snow this week has me wondering!!! I see buds!!!!

I love the ladybug allergy sufferer and her looking glass is perfect!!!

I read your post with smiles. Wild plants sometimes hide their powers that beyond our expectations.
