Signs of Spring

Spring is slow in coming to my part of the world.

I went for a walk last night looking for some more signs and this is what I found.

 I have no idea what flower this is but it sure is pretty

 there will be lots of magnolias.

 I couldn't see any buds on the tree but I'm sure they are up there.

 a lonely little crocus.

 japanese maples are getting buds.

and so are the lilacs. 

Happy Spring.

You take awesome macros!!! Spring is slow here too...but it is much better than snow!...:)JP
They are all lovely but I particularly like the little crocus. It does look lonely, no doubt others will join it soon.

It is slow in coming! But probably all the better because of the wait. The crocus is so sweet! I always think they are so brave.

That yellow one looks like a Winter Aconite to me. I had one in my post tonight too.

Lovely spring flowers! I think the yellow one is a winter aconite (Eranthis hyemalis).

Beautiful springtime photos--I especially love the crocus. At the house where I grew up in Portland we had a magnolia tree--it was lovely every spring.

Fantastic pictures, Felicia. I'm glad to read that spring is finally also arriving in your area. Have a nice weekend. Greetings, Joke

So very beautiful pictures!
It looks pretty much the same around here too Felicia, the buds and flowers are just starting to make an appearance and there is that wonderful scent of growing things in the air! Wonderful shots and don't know the 'official' name of that wee yellow flower but we call them buttercups around here. They are one of the first flowers to make an appearance, love those cheery little yellow faces!
