Spring in March?

We are having unseasonably warm weather here in West Michigan. I can't remember having this kind of weather in March. We have been setting records with the warm weather.

It was so nice this weekend, that when I got out of work, I went for a walk to enjoy it.


Here's a few berries that have hung on through the winter.




This is a dried flower still hanging from the hydrangea tree.





The tulips are growing!





And so are the windflowers.




These are wild pansies, growing in our woods.





Look at the trees budding!




The daffodils will be open very soon.






I love these cheery crocus.




I don't know how long this weather will last, but I'm enjoying it while it's here!

So much beauty popping up around you. We were in the 80's this weekend. I just wonder what summer will be like??

2 more days! We hit 84 the other day. Amazing. Then today it has been horribly windy. Beautiful pics as usual.

We are having much similar weather here! And we are loving it! The kids have been playing outside long hours with the neighbors - in shorts and tshirts! :)

We are having very mild weather here in the UK too. The daffodils are all out, and it really does feel like Spring, although we woke up to a heavy frost today.

Lovely photos!

Those pansies would be violets! I think the slugs have been eating my violets because they have hardly even leafed out yet.
We've had snow flurries for the last week. Weird weather for Oregon.

We've been having unseasonably warm weather here too! Last week we got into the 80s several times!

Bring on spring!!!!

You'll likely have another cold snap there and confuse all those pretty flowers, but here it's practically full summer! Dogwood and wisteria and azalea in full fluffiness everywhere. Our little daffodils are on the way out! It's glorious.

It's so fun to see the Spring flowers! I do miss them. Probably because we live in the city now, we don't see much. Most of the flowers people grow here bloom most of the year, except in July and August, our coldest months. Thanks for sharing!
