Signs of spring.

 I am linking to Outdoors Wed.

What a beautiful Easter day we had yesterday. Sun shining, very little wind, warmer than it has been for the last few weeks. It was a perfect day for egg hunts and spending time with family.
For us it was a day for remembering Christ, and spending time in our yard. There were so many signs of the promised spring.
The forsythia is blooming.
The first 2 asparagus shoots.
The rich black dirt of the newly tilled vegetable garden.
Tulips ready to burst open.
My first daffodil.
The last picture is of a tiny fern peony.My friend Carol gave me a tiny start last year.I did not think it made it but it surprised me.Nice surprise.
There is much more to do in the yard to make it beautiful but,yesterday, we get a good start with the cleaning. 
Have a great week.j
