Mid-Winter signs of Spring...

We are only about halfway through winter. Yet, on a recent walk, I couldn't help noticing the signs of new life and the inevitability of the arrival of spring, mixed in with the obvious signs that it is still winter. (All photos taken with my iPhone 7plus.)

  2. I am HOPEFUL that Spring arrives before schedule. It's only been a while since Winter started, but I'm ready. No snowy icy roads...no real hard rains...just nice weather. :) Enjoyed seeing some Spring color in your photos. Thanks.

  3. Your photos are gorgeous! Signs of Spring are all around us here, too. I'm loving the idea that it won't be long before things break into bloom and our world is filled with color again.

  7. Great pics! Amazing how far technology has come when phone photos these days look like they've been taken with a DSLR, isn't it?

    1. True, and it's hard to go on a brisk walk with a dslr hanging around your neck, but I have my phone with me anyway since I listen to music.
