After winter’s short days, long nights, springtime is welcome with its return to longer and more sunny days. Even the overcast days are bright with the promise of rain to bring on green grass and all the new growth of the season.
One of early spring’s familiar sights also involves lots of hints from family that it’s time for a pie — rhubarb. These leaves are very shiny with the new growth.

Fir Branch, with new growth
With fairly nice weather a few days ago, I went outside, with camera, to check out what interesting things I might find. This fir tree was already showing the start of new growth.
We had heavy rain the night before, and water was rushing through the wet area at the edge of our yard.
Peeling Birch Bark
Birch tree bark peels now and then. This piece was blowing in the breeze.
As I write this morning, bluebirds are checking out our nesting box. Ah, spring!
