Spring is in the air all over the blogosphere.

Dianne at Circle of Quiet posts a lovely photo of storm-drenched daffodils.

Beth and her crew are heading out to the flower beds this weekend!

Bonnie of Macromoments is "craving sunshine and flowers, and all that spring represents" and taking us deeper into an appreciation of our God, who is as sure as the seasons.

Have you heard of galanthus? M-mv celebrates the season of renewal with a picture of these tiny heralds of spring.

I have it on good authority that it is still snowing where Kim from Hiraeth lives, but that hasn't stopped her from making her own spring!

And things are not so "quiet" over at Donna's place although I would only call it a low rumbling so far... however, watch out if it doesn't warm up by May!

Up here, in the north, we are still in winter's grip. We are only dreaming of spring... although the sky is light now by 6 a.m.

We're getting a little weary - somewhat wistful - a trifle pensive. And looking forward to....

these beauties that even brave the late spring snows.

and bright, butter-yellow, marsh marigolds that grow in profusion along the stream that flows into the Pinette River by my home. The sight of these, spread out like a golden carpet, takes my breath away.

Best of all, there is June, the month that brings our famous lupins - delicate pink to deep purple bands of blooming colour growing in wild abandon in ditches, fields and along roads all over our Island.

Mailboxes have never been so beautifully framed!

Spring will come.... but, for now, I am thankful for photographers (thank you Rinda Dean) and poets (same to you William!).
