Spring Is All Around - And Eaglets

White daffodils, Kwanzan Flowering Cherry, wisteria, Japanese Painted Fern, pansy, Stars of Bethlehem, wild strawberry bloom, violets, Japanese Maple.

About half these photos were taken in Gardening Daughter's yard, the others at my place. My Japanese Maple tree has leafed out very nicely.  I was a bit worried about it after it suffered so much from last summer's heat.

The eaglets are hatching at Decorah, Iowa.  The first was out of it's shell early Saturday morning; another may have hatched since I last looked (I've been watching sporadically) and the third egg has a peep hole, already. It's exciting!

Tomorrow is also a day.

Gorgeous blooms! Thanks for sharing ~~ and thanks for the heads up on the eaglets ~~ I have them bookmarked and forgot to check on them for a few days and now they're hatching! I just love all the new life that comes into the world in the springtime.

Japanese maples are so very beautiful. So glad yours survived those 100+ days we had all last summer.

A blogging friend put me on to the eagles and I'm watching from Canada - it's bringing out my grandmothering instincts.
Very nice mosaic.

Sigh.. that's just so refreshing to see. We're still kind of drab here.

Those eaglets are indeed fun to watch.
