Is Spring on its way?

I found this tiny little pink hydrangea amongst the 
bare woody branches and baby leaves this morning . . . 
Is Spring on its way?

The plum trees are budding and it's smells
HEAVENLY in my back yard . . .
Is Spring on its way?

All of my azaleas are BURSTING with blooms . . . 
Is Spring on its way?

You decide. But it sure does look like it here in So Cal. While I'm desperately attempting to hold onto Winter - Mother Nature has a mind of her own.

Have a wonderful, warm, almost Spring day.

XOXOXO

Gorgeous flowers!!! After one of the darkest months ever all I want is Spring. You should have been here this Winter to understand, but trust me, Winter has been too cold and too long for most of us...

Hydrangeas are my favorite flower!!
Beautiful pics, I am sooo jealous. I got home at 4:30 a. m. today and there is plenty of winter left here. What a change from Phoenix. I will be happy when I can just see my ground again. Hugs Girl,

I think spring is here but she's a bit fickle. Warm and sunny one day. Then cold and rainy the next. I feel badly for all the high school kids I see each day that are totaly unprepared for the weather. The almond orchard down the road was in full bloom . Now there is a wet carpet of white and pink between each row. I need to see if I can get a photo without getting run over or stuck in the mud.
Hugs,
Dawn

Very beautiful, Karen! Hydrangeas are amongst my favorite flowers and of course I especially love the pink ones :-)! Maybe you can send me over just a few degrees of temperature. I had so hoped to go to a flea market on Sunday but with 30 degrees there probably won't show up many vendors, sniff!
Hugs,
Julia

Hydrangeas already????
Oh please send some Spring over here...it's still in the 40's!!! If we are lucky, it might get in the 60's but only for a few hours.
That's it...I just need to move to California!!!!
