First Day of Spring 2013: Great; Snow on 2nd Day

Updated on August 30, 2017

Very nice to have Spring 2013 arrive - had to record it for the future, and share.

I hope you enjoy my review of the first day of Spring 2013 in our neighborhood. Catching the Cardinal was really a bonus. Do you enjoy the buds and flowers of Spring? We sure do.

What does Spring mean to you? Gardening and outdoors, or birds and flowers and green grass?

I took each of the photo images used in this lens, myself. I hope you like them.

On the first day of Spring, there were huge bundles of buds, it appears. Do you know what these are?

Daffodils mean Spring, to me!

I love the Daffodils. These are in a neighbor's yard, but it is right on the path I walk everyday it is nice enough to get out for a long walk.

I love the Yellow Daffodils. How about you?

On the second day of Spring...

We had our first real snowfall!

Just when we thought we were going to get by, this year...

We got five inches of wet snow.

It was nice and warm, though, so was all gone in a couple of day... Then, stayed cold for two weeks! ;-)

Not all is new this First day of Spring - Some old leaves still on some trees!

On the First Day of Spring, we are always still "in-between." In-between on temperature, in-between on new and old leaves, etc.

Here is a tree that looks just like it did last fall, still! ;-)

      We're still getting snow and freezing weather here, even though it's Spring. Beautiful photos.

      I saw the moon really easy but I sure had to hunt for that cardinal, that was harder than finding Waldo! We just had a record breaking 6.3 inches in Fargo a couple days ago, that's for April 13th...we've had plenty more than that but not in April and more on the way but we have spring in our hearts! :)
