Signs, signs...everywhere there's signs!

 Or so my mom was signing earlier as we were in the yard. I had no idea what she was going on about. I didn't see any signs. 

Then she told me, "Wesley! Stop and look by your feet!"

I still really didn't see anything..except for maybe these weird little red nub things sticking out from the ground. 

I looked at Mom and asked "These things?"

She excitedly told me "YES!"

She told me then that these little red nubbins were the beginnings of my grandma's peony plants, and one of the signs that spring was getting nearer.

She asked if I could see anymore signs, because once you look hard enough there were more.


So I looked around.

At first I really didn't see much...and then I saw these tiny little leaf buds starting on the Japanese lilac bushes!

And out in the front yard, there were buds on the Rhododendron bushes!

Mom was right....

Signs, signs everywhere there's signs....of spring!


  1. We LOVE your Signs of Spring, Wesley.
    Much better than the Sign We gotted today... 2" of Snow that was shoveled from the Driveway today. UGH.

  2. How exciting Wesley! We don't look at plants much....we like looking for things with a pulse, if you know what we mean. BOL! But Spring, that's WALKING season!

  3. Wesley what a darling little red peony bud. OMCs signs everywhere here too.
    Even our dogwood has two blooms on it. IT never blooms until April. Geez
    I know you love having no snow so that you can run about. After 2 weeks of totally unseasonable warm weather....We have a freeze predicted for tonight. We hope they are wrong 'cause lots there are peach and strawberry crops way ahead of themselves too.
