Bursting through

I've been trying to resist the urge to go out and take pictures of my tulips coming up because I didn't want to be a complete copycat of next2hector  who has a lovely shot of tulips on his blog, but I could resist no more.  I was so excited though to see how they were actually pushing through the leaves (carelessly left by me there last fall) like little spring torpedoes!

While I was busy with the tulips, Josie was making some nature discoveries of her own.  She was "climbing" all over a little Redbud tree in our yard and picked a few seed pods off.  She came running to me all excited and wanted to know what they were.  After I explained that they were seeds that grow into trees, she took it upon herself to pick as many pods off as she could reach and "plant" them all over the yard.


  1. I'm so glad you stopped resisting! Spring skewering a winter worn leaf. YAY!

    Seeds ~ oh the possibilities...Josie knows :)

  2. I love that first picture! And Misha's description of it.
    I'm so jealous that you are seeing signs of spring.

  3. What cool shots, both the leaf and the tiny bug! Love the seed pod shots too.
