Signs of Spring #11 (a bit early...)

I always have my camera at the ready these days so that when we do have a tiny amount of sun peeking through, I can quickly run outside and snap some pictures. Good thing I did when I did because it is raining once again...

I didn't feel like waiting until Monday to post this so here you go, our few Signs of Spring. Everything is growing like crazy with all this water (and so are the weeds) but the temperatures are still way below average so things just take longer to start blooming.
