February Tree

by greenrabbitdesigns

Well it’s the start of a new month and time to have a look at my sycamore tree again and see how it’s moving towards spring. At first glance it doesn’t seem to have changed much but close up it has a lot more buds than the January tree photo.

It is very springlike here this morning and before I went into the garden the tree was full of starlings chirping and chattering and preening themselves in the morning sunshine, I think they thought it was like spring too!

The tight little buds are waiting just for the right moment to burst open, hope that little moment will be soon, then we’ll know for sure that spring has arrived.

Underneath the tree the little bulbs are pushing their way through and it won’t be long until we have crocuses and then bluebells!

Now I know that February is still a winter month but it’s a winter month with a touch of spring. With the lighter evenings and certainly with our lovely weather here this morning, I feel spring is close!
Happy days ! 🙂

Your pictures really do feel spring like today – it was lovely to see the buds on your sycamore tree – it won’t be long till they begin to unfurl! And the bulbs pushing through below – lovely to think of crocus and bluebells isn’t it? I also just caught a glimpse of that sweet little Smokey from yesterday’s post – he really is cute! Have a lovely day and enjoy the sunshine. Helen x

Any signs of Spring make me happy and buds with such potential like these are some of the best. Love smokey bear!

Isn’t it great to have lighter evenings and to feel we are on the downward slope towards spring now. Love to see the buds and the bulbs pushing through – not long now eh?!!

Oh, I cannot help but be little jealous, Viv. It snows here AGAIN, even we already have…some. But I am really, really happy that you can enjoy the spring-like weather and share it to us, too!

Have the happiest week!

Thanks for the spring thinking – here we are getting another 10 inches of snow and sleet – My little ones can’t even stand in the yard without disappearing!

Yay for lighter evenings and the onset of spring, I hate doing the school run in the dark, it just doesn’t feel right. Good to see Mother Nature doing what she does best. Enjoy the sunshine.

A little different to here. February is hot, hot, hot and so very humid, even the very sticky, sweaty nights. I am longing for the coolness of Autumn mornings

Hi Vivienne, yes there are definately signs around of spring, most noticeably that my Hb is no longer leaving for work in the dark…! Thoses buds will be opening soon.
