while parts of this grand land are snowed in,
not so in my corner of the world.
peach tree buds.
and i'm already looking forward
to making a peach pie!

our daffodils are in full bloom ..
with other bulb plants reaching high
with promise of exposing their 
inner beauty for all to see.

springtime cometh.

Hurray! As the snow is falling here, your post and photos show the hope of spring!

When you do your peaches ripen? We get local peaches (free stone) in August and September! They are wonderful.

My Daffy's have come up - they thought spring was on the way a month ago, but no blooms have formed yet! We have mild weather arriving tomorrow and I hope it stays.

Sherry all looks beautiful, love the buds. Philly is still in Winter but I did buy pussy willow branches to force in our house, the first sign of Spring. Now if I can keep my Simon cat from stealing the pussys off the branch!

Just saw tulip blades poking through the ground, myself. Spring is surely not far away! Hmmmmm, homemade peach pie with homegrown peach tree. That makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

I didn't know the peach tree had pretty pink buds like this. Oh, peach pie, sounds wonderful. Haven't had it in awhile. Yes, it's supposed to be cold and rainy on Wednesday, then warm up again. Isn't northern California fantastic?

Have a good week, Sherry.


ps I loved the Saint Therese quote on your Valentine post. She's very special to me. :)

Red Rose Alley said...

Oooops, that quote was from Mother Teresa. She's so special too. :)

Is this the most sweetest post... Awaiting spring and it's glory in new birth, the anticipation of the beautiful peaches and the pies and cobblers to follow, perhaps some canning will take place with pretty little designer labels spelling out "And Wear Pearls" ??

See you soon, enjoy all the buds and blooms.

Oh I love spring thanks for the preview of what is yet to come our way.

Sherry said...

hoping for some weather in your parts.. what a deep snow you've had this winter! our peaches will be ready for picking come mid-August. it's a dwarf peach tree that fits snug in a smallish garden area just outside our living room door to the backyard.

Sherry said...

pussy willows! my childhood was spent in northern illinois on the lake. er..our home was about a mile from the lake. tramping through the ravine toward the beach and past the RR tracks were pussy willows everywhere. sweet memory. :) give Simon some catnip - he'll leave your pussy willows alone! wink.

Sherry said...

i love spring's new life. it's as if spring with all its budding and blooming, reminds us that God makes all things new. He propagates what has been pruned, and grafts new life. hm. ♥

Sherry said...

Sherry said...

gosh i haven't canned in a couple years. gave all my stuff away thinking i was done. but i love your idea. :) little designer labels spelling out 'and wear pearls.' genius.

Sherry said...

what's your favorite part of spring, jeanne - and your least favorite?

my favorite is the buds and blooms, hummingbirds establishing terrority, the smell of fresh cut grass, neighbors coming out of their homes after a long winter's sleep.

my least favorite? springtime spiders (ewwww) and allergies and seasonal asthma. not a fan. wink.

I'm behind the times, here. Catching up today! Love Spring and I'm so excited to see my tulips have pushed through the soil and sprouted leaves. Daffodils aren't far behind and my gorgeous pink peonies have just shown themselves present in the garden. Little tippy tops are peaking up to let me know they are coming soon!

The snow is gone and the rain has started. Spring is on the way!

Sherry said...

but other bulbs are reaching for the heavens.
i don't remember what i planted so this will
be a surprise. :)
