Looking for Spring.

We are getting fed up with all the rain and mud so we thought we would see if we could find Spring.

Yup, here are some daffodils in bud in the field. That is a sign that Spring is somewhere close by.

Then we found some primroses.

The trees have got catkins on them and that is a sure sign of Spring too. We wonder why they are called catkins. They don't look like kitties.

Then we found snowdrops. We hope Spring soon comes to you too.

Oh, that looks very nice! We sure hope spring comes early for us all.

Marg said...

Wow your Spring is way ahead of ours. We only have daffodils trying to bloom and some of the trees have little itty bitty blossoms on them. So it won't be long. So take care and have a fun week end.

We're getting snow again, although it isn't is bad as other places this winter (thankfully!!!)...

Angel and Kirby said...

We do not trust the signs of spring. Our neighbors daffodils bloomed before the ice storm.

Brian said...

We are so ready for spring too guys!

Whoohoo SPRING! And two tiger cats out in the fields. Lovely.

Sparkle said...

You guys are getting some serious signs of spring! Here on the California coastline, some of us kitties may actually get some SNOW!

Roy said...

Don't ya just love the field trips. We don't have snow, and no buds and flowers showing yet, but I'm thinking it will not be long. SouthWoods is warming up big time.

Outside kitties are out and about daily searching for spring too. Hope they find it soon.

Kea said...

That looks soooooo wonderful! We got so much snow yesterday that the PM can only open the door 6 inches.

Our Snowdrops will be sleeping for awhile more. :(

Chew some nice green grass for us, fellas!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We love the first picture of you - it looked as though you were jumping through the grass in gay abandon.
Tell your mum that the sun we had the other day was only for that day and it has rained ever since (still better than snow at least we don't have to listen to mum cursing as she clears it to get the car out the garage!!)
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Ayla, Iza, and Marley said...

Oh, we are so happy to see yer flowers beginnin ta bloom!

An TBT says they are called catkins because of their soft, furry appearance.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

You had the mom laughing out loud with your comment today at my place. You are too funny.
Looks like it is more spring time at your place then here. At least you have green grass and some flowers peeking out.

Father Tom said...

Spring is coming to your neck of the woods and I'm so jealous! We had a big snowstorm, so it's going to be awhile, but the sun is warm and the days are getting brighter.

Have a good weekend, my furriends!

Tom

Grrreta said...

You two have once again proven you are excellent hunters. It looks like you are very close on the trail of Spring. We hope you find it soon. (We love that first picture of you. It looks like you two are having great fun.)

Kari said...

Snowdrops! Don't you just love snowdrops! Ah, the signs that spring is almost here. And the catkins, too, are always a sure sign. ( We like stuff named after us also.)
Suddenly mum has a major urge to get some Pussy Willow branches to put in the Chinese vase. Thank you for bringing spring to us. Our love to you.

Pearl C. Pritchard said...

I needed some hope that spring was coming. Thanks for the photos. Pumpy and I are still hugging the radiators and last night I even got under the covers next to the lap lady!

Laila and Minchie said...

It's gonna be a while yet before we see any spring here. We still have snow on the ground. Boohoohoo! We are so happy you are starting to see some in your fields!

Derby, Ducky said...

We hope spring comes soon too. We are getting light snow again today.

Anita said...

We have had many days of the Sun and heat hereabouts too.
