First sign of Spring

It has been shocking to see how quick Spring is arriving this year.
Although we have been having some rain, our temperatures have 
stayed in the 80's for days now.
Everything is starting to bloom so early this year.

Look at our crape myrtles! Normally we don't see any leaves on 
them until April and no flowers until May.

Look at all the brand new shiny leaves

The funny thing is that just two weeks ago, they looked like this!

Even the little one on the flower bed is looking like if we were in the middle of May.

And the flowers I planted two weeks ago are getting huge!

 And my daughter planted a few seeds in a small pot just a
few days ago and look at them!

I think is safe to say, Spring has arrived!
I hope you guys are having a great Monday!


  1. Wow! You really DO have blooms...and your pictures are gorgeous! No real green here yet. We usually don't get anything growing until late April/mid May but we have been having really warm weather this Spring, too. Weird! xo Diana

  2. It do believe Spring has arrived for you! We are having beautiful weather here as well, but nothing is blooming yet. Enjoy it!

  3. Wow! It IS early for crape myrtles!! Mine are still bare; but everything else is popping up!! I'm excited! Can't wait until the jasmine starts blooming near the patio! It smells so good! I was out back yesterday and my knockout roses have buds! I guess that's one of the benefits of having a mild winter.

  4. Spring has sprung for you and your flowers are beautiful. Nothing blooming here yet but we have been having temp in the 70s and 80s. Had a little rain today so that should speed things up.
