ABC Wednesday - "E"

"E" is for Emerging

It takes only a few days of moderate temperatures for daffodils to start pushing their way up through the still cold ground and the layer of leaves which have sheltered them from the most bitter cold. It won't be long until bright yellow blossoms are nodding their heads in the breeze and silently whispering "Come on, Spring!"






ABC Wednesday was created by Mrs. Nesbitt. Please visit the ABC Wednesday site to view others' interpretations of this week's letter, "E."

Hi Pat, Our daffodils are 'emerging' also!!! Does that mean that Spring is coming??????????????

Hope you are having a great week.

Mine have pushed up thru the earth and I can barely wait for the many colors of yellows pinks and creams to lift their heads toward heaven!

What a wonderful thought....the emerging of spring growth from the earth. Good choice for "E". I can't wait until spring flowers start emerging around here. Right now we are in that transition time of snow and mud.

I got little tulip pieces sticking up. I think I need to plant some daffodils though!

The blueish color makes that photo really nice! So spring is coming? Are you sure? Good! We need a bit of warmth and sunshine. Just like the daffodils.

Love the blue in this picture!! Also like the effect of the fall leaves with a springy color - Great Job!!

Hi Pat
There's no better sign of spring than daffodils here in the UK.. we have snowdrops a plenty... but no signs of daff's just yet.
Thanks for the visits and messages while I've been resting.

Your daffodils have technicolour clothing compared to mine! They're my favourite flower though, whatever the colour of their leaves...

How funny (as in peculiar, not ha-ha)! I posted today about spring also and included a picture of jonquils. It must be a collective unconscious thing. Or maybe we really are all part of the Borg (see Star Trek - The Next Generation.

Hello Pat, I saw already daffodils in the mainstreet of my village. Thank you for the sign of spring!

Patty said...

Unless it warms up more here, I don't know if our daffodils will come out before Easter.

Arkansas Patti said...

Hi Pat, Thanks for the visit and comments. Are you getting the fever? I sure am. Little green sprouts,plant catalogs,and warm days like today, all make that urge to get your hands dirty overwhelming. Almost there.

Exciting to see new growth!

So beautiful! I just love when Spring comes and so many wonderful things emerge from the ground! It is such a blessed time!

I'm amazed at the resistance of bulbs to cold weather. They must produce their own antifreeze!

We have green shoots all over the place, but so far only the snowdrops are blooming. Even the winter pansies have been frozen into submission.

Babooshka said...

That is a such a beautiful idea and image.

Rose said...

Mine are trying to emerge, also. I am hoping that they survive.

Ackworth born said...

Ours are pushing up too but I've never seen any blue shoots before!

Hilary said...

They sure do have a blue hue to them. I suspect it will still be awhile until we're seeing those signs of spring here. Lovely shot, Pat.

Karyn said...

Very nice shot. Are the leaves really that blue, or is that the lighting?

Emerging is a wonderful E word...very creative of you!

Ooh, what a pretty shot! The leaves are an amazing color! I love daffodils because they always strike me as such a happy flower :)
