In Texas it's not unusual for early-budding trees, like the ash, to get their young, tender leaves frozen back by a late freeze.  Wisdom I learned from my grandfather is that it's really spring when the buds on pecan trees are as big as a squirrel's ear.

We've had them for over 20 years now and they are awesome little critters with different personalities.

Oh my that's awesome what a wonderful thing

I know when I lived at beach I enjoyed seeing Sea Turtles come to beach lay nests and watching babies hatch & was fascinated by learning babies return as adults to same beach their born

Also watching family of deer each year leaving my place for day and returning in evening

BUT WOW your having your own Box Turtles living in your yard 20 years that's just awesome

Thanks for sharing that... its amazing had no idea they would connect in such a way.... Enjoy your spring in the desert.... reckon we are all blessed by the changes of seasons happening in our areas each are unique 

Have a beautiful day!

I know it's spring by the peep frogs and the buds on the tree, but mostly because I actually want to go outside. Here's a pic from yesterday, a wonderful spring day for a walk.Spring Walk 2.jpg

Of course the first sign of Spring here is seeing a robin and I have seen my first one.  The poor bird looked as if he thought he arrived too early!  The grass has gone from brown to green but now we have a bit of snow cover and possibly more to come!    The trees are far from sprouting any leaves yet, much less the fruit trees flowering.  Haven't seen any daffodils or other early spring flowers.  Spring is here on the calendar but not yet outside!
