Signs of Spring

A beautiful ginger cat passing by on a cobble street nearby.
Stopping to pose for a picture. Uh, probably not.

When January heads into February,
I'm always on the look out for little signs of Spring.


Whenever I see Snowdrops peeking out of the ground, it brings me great joy.
To me they are the first sign that we're heading towards Spring.


Here you see a spot on my messy worktable of this moment, where there's Rooibos tea, some poetry and a little needlework project. It will be a cross stitched rose and it will be incorporated in a... well
I don't know yet. Something with fabrics and laces no doubt.

Oh, and there are reading glasses too... My first. Can't thread the needle without them anymore, lol.

I'm sharing this longing-for-Spring-blog-post with my sweet blog friends at

Our Beautiful World

Where the prompt this week is (was, it's almost time for a new one) Signs of Spring. If you love taking photos of the beauty around you, then we'd be happy if you join us!

Wishing you all a beautiful and peaceful day.

  1. Such beautiful pictures, dear Wendy. I live in the mountains where there is usually a lot of snow {which I love}, but this year we have had very warm temperatures and the snow is melting. Right now when I look outside it appears to be Spring and even smells like Spring :)

    Have a wonderful weekend...and I love your reading glasses *wink wink* :) Hugs!

  2. Alas no signs of spring here. It snowed huge flakes all afternoon and more to come tomorrow it seems. I'm more than ready for spring!

  3. You have those flowers already?!? Didn't think they would pop up through the snow at 0 degrees!
