All these photos are gorgeous. Especially like the shot of the pansies. Aren’t they amazing.
Nothing like a pot of pansies to cheer you up! They have such happy faces.
Yes they do. have a good one
Beautiful, Cindy! I love the hummingbird most.
Hi Rafael. Thanks! It was hard to get him to hold still. 😉
Do have to go with the exuberance of a “Burst of Yellow”
Thanks, Allen. I love yellow bursts of color. Makes the gray skies go away. 🙂
. . . and makes a blue sky more beautiful.
Amazing photos! You made me look forward to Spring 🙂
I like looking at Spring photos when everything is dead outside. Brings me hope. Thank you for commenting.
All lovely, Cindy! I’ll go with the butterfly, if I had to pick my fave.
I love lilacs, the smell! The butterflies are fun to try and catch when they stop to pose. Thank you, Rick.
All of these shots are terrific, but Hummingbirds are my favorite!
Hiya John. Do you have,hummingbirds now? They are at my feeder daily.
Yes, we have a number of Hummingbirds that are regular visitors to our house….we don’t have a feeder, but a nice collection of plans that flower regularly!
Yes. The benefit of a warmer climate.
Thanks John. In Illinois, they are smaller than AZ hummers.
You are in Arizona, right? I’m in LA now permanently, but they seem smaller here as well
AZ, yes. Ours sound like fire bombers attacking.
Always love hummingbirds. We get a few to our feeder here in Phoenix.
They are jealous and thirsty in my backyard. Thanks, Karen. 🙂
First: I hope you are feeling better.
Second: Thanks for up the winter for me. Although here in Minnesota spring is still a long way off. The butterfly and the lilac actually brought back the fragrance of the lilac, At one time before my knees went bad, I had over 100 rose bushes around the place, so the burst of yellow brought back a lot of fond memories. And then there is the pansies, the first flowers we can plant in the spring up here. I love them. And I can never understand why the word pansy is used to denote weakness. They are the toughest flowers around. Thanks again, Cindy and I hope you are feeling alright.
Howdy, Don. You are kind to ask about my health. Not too good, really. However, I have surgery on Friday and then out for a couple weeks. I’ll be glad to getting back to blogging!
Right now I’m just chipping away at the novel since I can’t blog much these days.
Looking at spring pictures in winter always lifts my spirits. Just sharing the love! 🙂
Fingers crossed and prayers.
You’re sweet and kind. 🙂
Of course, you know I will go with cacti, and a hummingbird, as we don’t have either here.
Best wishes, Pete. x
I threw those in for you. They were early bloomers in March a couple years ago. The Hummers are constant companions. I wish you could visit AZ one day. You’d love it, I feel.
I have no doubt I would really enjoy it in your company, Cindy. 🙂 x
Thanks for the cacti, you know I love them.
Best wishes, Pete. x
Lovely collection of spring 🌷
Thank you, Ingrid. We both appreciate the early spring in AZ.
Nature is such a beautiful thing that you highlight gorgeously.
What an encouraging time of the year Spring is. However it remind me that on the other end of the earth we are on the slow count down to winter ourselves. lol. Already I can feel the beginnings of an early chill on my daybreak walks.
Oh, that’s right! Ouch! Does it snow where you live? Violent storms?
No snow here, we live in the sub-tropics about 8 minutes drive to some of the best beaches in the world. We have not had a cyclone in this area for about ten years now. Most of those would be in the tropics about five hundred miles north.
No 8 for me!
Peaches. They are a strange color coming out of a cacti! I love walking by that bush when March comes and the blossoms unfold. Thanks, Abbi.
A lovely selection of photographs, Cindy. The cactus in bloom is lovely.
Thank you Robbie! Glad you liked them.
lovely pics !
kisses from Paris
The burst of yellow and the hummingbird are my favorites. Thank you!
Wonderful. Especially the hummingbird!
Thank you, Ali. They are great t o os er
Love the Ruby-throated hummingbird the most but all of them are so beautiful ❤
The beautiful hummingbird and butterfly are creatures which won’t be seen until June here in Ohio! You’re so lucky! xo 💐💕
ps. There were belated well wishes for you that were missed back when I you had your cysts and gall bladder low functioning level. I was concerned and hoping you are much better, Cindy! 💗
Wow. I love the buds bursting on the branch – the detail of the leaf and flower parts. Also the cactus flowers, which we don’t have in the U.K. Nor hummingbirds, which are just stunning.
I’ve heard that about the hummingbirds. I can’t imagine a day without them. I wonder what bird you have that we are missing?

Love the iridescent cerise collar!
Isn’t it something? They catch the light and it’s like a band of jewels around the neck.
