Signs of Spring along the Banbury-Mopac Trail

Tuesday afternoon I went for a hike on the nearby Banbury-Mopac Trail in Franconia Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. It was a warm,sunny afternoon. This seems to be one of the earliest places to find Spring flowers blooming.

Hi, sage. It has gotten colder here, too. We had snow flurries today and the high was only like 42 degrees.

Hi, ginnie. But as stated above to sage, winter is not giving up too easily. :)

Thanks, moi. Spring is wonderful!

Thanks, mikaela. Glad you enjoyed these photos. :)

Tim - I added a link to the sidebar of my blog and wrote about it today. It is one that I know you will enjoy if you aren't already familiar with it.

Ohh, I've just discovered your blog. I truly enjoy the gorgeous photos and your commentary. I look forward to spending more time checking you out. Truly spring "springs" from your lens.

Marvelous. Would you like to see if a black page background looks better than a white background. Most of your photo shots are light shaded. It may give some contrast.

Lovely photos of a lovely place. Looks like you take advantage of the beautiful places near where you live. I always try to, never know where I'll be five years from now.

Thanks, sarad. An idea to ponder.

Hi, nabeel. I, too, am looking forward to the full coming of Spring and Summer. :)

Thanks, judypatooote. Glad you enjoyed my hike via my blog. God has blessed me with many beautiful places to hike and enjoy.

Hi, choochoo. Spring will come in its time; just not always fast enough for us.

It's amazing how hearty some flowers can be, like those grape hyacinths in your picture. Mine still come back every spring despite dog urine. :-)

Cergie said...

Green green green green
Yellow yellow yellow yellow
Blue blue blue blue blue

And a few red

SPRING !

Hi, murf. And I'm glad these flowers are so hardy. They are beautiful!

Thanks, cergie. Spring is beautiful and wonderful, isn't it?
