The road to recovery is paved with springtime discovery

Greetings Arborealists! I hope that you all had a wonderful week and a fabulous full moon. As for me, I woke up in the dark of Monday morning with a terrible flu! After being unable to do almost anything all week long, I am finally starting to feel semi-normal. And guess what happened while I was sick in bed?


and THIS…

and this…

and these...

and of course, these too...

Yes, while I was sick in bed, Springtime decided to make herself known. And so, with three more days until the Vernal Equinox, here in eastern Pennsylvania we at last see the beginnings of the coming season in the most beautiful of places.

What wonders hide beneath the earth, just waiting for the sun and rain to coax them forth again!


  1. Lovely!

    Looks like things were busy budding while you were stuck in bed. Isn't it amazing how fast spring comes on once it's started?

    Glad you're feeling better. :)

  2. Ah, you know spring is on the way when the forsynthia starts to bloom.

    Sounds like you had a miserable week. Glad there was such loveliness to greet you once you were back on your feet.

  3.'s awful being sick and down & out, hopefully you are 100% better now! The trees haven't started coming to life yet in Chicago, but Spring is definitely in the air. The daffodils are beautiful, they are the very definition of Spring!

  4. JB, thanks, and yes, it IS truly amazing how rapidly spring bursts forth once started... it's one amazing flood to enjoy each year!

    LilyB, thank you - I was wondering the name of the yellow-flowered tree/bush, and I appreciate your wisdom. Now I have a name for her - and forsythia is indeed a beautiful name!

    Crystal, thanks - I'm glad to be feeling better too! We have snow flurries this morning, but like you, I agree that with flowers blooming, we know that spring is really here at last!
