Spring at last?

April [snow]showers, May flowers, and a bright look at spring!

The sunny days in April always seem to trick me into thinking that spring is right there, around the corner -and for some lucky ducks it is- but then a chilly wind whips around or the dawn reveals yet another snow blanket on the back deck. Like this morning. 
So you can imagine my delight when the sun pitched in and the deck was summery and shimmery by afternoon. I basked in the promise of spring; maybe this time the warm days will linger until summer takes over and turns them into heat. Fingers crossed. I'm dressing in pastels to will spring here!

Hauskaa Vappua! Happy May Day!

Our red currant bush made it through the winter and is already boasting tender leaf buds

along with the aspen.

In their sheltered corners these tiny flower babies and a daring dandelion share my enthusiasm.

I'm starting to spot bicycles and baby prams and kites. Sure signs of spring around here.

When do you have spring? What are your favorite signs for it?
