Signs of Spring

Even if it’s still winter there are subtle signs that spring is on the way! Some trees are budding. They create misery for allergy sufferers but I have a good medicine for it (antihistamines eye drops and nasal spray).

Het is winter. Maar de lente komt eraan. Zaterdag lekker gewandeld, samen met m'n man en wat zagen we veel "katjes". Ik ben allergisch maar dankzij medicijnen kan ik toch nog wel buiten zijn.

Birch / berk? 
Zwarte els / black alder?
Knotted trees

What do you see in it?

Thorns and buds 

Rode els?
 Have a nice week! 


  1. I see a face in the tree.
    No signs of spring around here yet.

  2. Oh how I love to see those early signs of spring! I see an owl face in the wood.

  3. I just saw some buds on a tree the other day, but it's still so cold here. It's lovely that you have seen signs of Spring as well. Oh, I see a face in the knotted tree, maybe an owl? Have a wonderful week, Aritha.


  4. Mooie foto's van de lente in opkomst.

    Groettie van Patricia.

  5. Mooie serie Aritha van deze nieuwe natuur. Heerlijk weer dit te mogen aanschouwen.
    Groet kees.

  6. We have signs of spring here also. I see an owl in the tree. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  7. I see an owl's face. Super macro photos, Aritha.

  8. Those thorns are beautiful, though.

    It's almost Spring here too. We will soon have clouds of yellow pollen!

  9. What a funny face in the tree trunk, with its round little nose! It's a pleasure to see Spring come back. Wonderful photos, Aritha! Have a nice day!

  10. Zo mooi die katjes, wij hebben een zwarte els in de tuin.
    Maar als je allergisch bent is het minder fijn.

  11. It's been such a mild winter here that some flowers just kept on blooming! We had a few fuchsias in a hanging basket by our door through the winter and some out front. Everything is getting a very early start this year! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  12. I see an owl face in the wood... and I see all of your wonderful photographs.
    Definitely signs of Spring.

    All the best Jan
