Heralds Of Spring In Northeast Arkansas

Corkscrew Willow leafing out for spring.

Right now it is pretty hard to believe it is actually spring. It snowed here this past week and it has been cold outside.

There are a few things that indicate spring is here though.

The Corkscrew Willow started putting out leaves a few days ago! It will be fully dressed for summer before long.

Peony shoots coming up.

One of the Peony plants is starting to come up already! I can hardly wait for the blooms. They are usually big and gorgeous!

Purple grasses, or weeds.

This purple stuff is coming up everywhere too. My yard doesn’t have it thick enough to look like a purple carpet but some places do. I think it is pretty when it comes up thick.

I’m not sure if it is a weed or some kind of grass but either way I like it.

And of course we have had Daffodils and Jonquils for a while now. Some of those are finished blooming already but a few are still going strong.

I’ve also seen a few Tulip trees blooming on the way to town. Those are really lovely!

So if it would just warm up a bit it would really feel like spring here.

How is spring coming along in your area?

  1. We had a mild winter, but a gray coldish start to spring. Can’t wait for the sun and the flowers! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog via Katherine’s linkup on Thursday!

    1. Yep here it seems to get cold again every time it starts looking like spring. Yesterday was cold again.

      I wish it would just quit and warm up for good.

    1. It is gorgeous! The limbs hand down almost like a weeping willow and it is really shady and cool underneath.

      My tulips are starting to come up! They are gonna be lovely too.
