@TattedHibiscus hi! Thanks so much for doing this and sorry if I missed it - where can we send donations (monetary or packing supplies)? ๐ŸŒฑโ˜€๏ธโค๏ธ
As a Texanโ€ฆ pollen. Pollen everywhere. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ’€
@RealSimpleMama hey there! Of course โ˜บ๏ธ I added it to the first comment, thanks for pointing that out๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’š
Magnolias, daffodils, and cherry blossoms all showing off lately on my walks ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ’š
Outside, weโ€™re about to get nailed by a snowstorm. Someone should tell my plantsโ€ฆ.๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒผ
The increased to-do list for plants. Repotting, fertilising, re-arranging the plant family, and doing more cardio going down the stairs to get more water
Glad I waited!
we have the robins back here in PA hunting for worms, next sign will be the crocuses coming up๐Ÿชฑ ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ˜Š
The tulip leaves popping up from the garden always lets me know spring is around the corner ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
@TattedHibiscus is the Venmo $JanaiCastro correct? I canโ€™t seem to get it to work.
@Captjo @J-Castro-22
Sorry about that! Iโ€™m a mess ๐Ÿ˜…
There is a bird that comes back every year around this time who LOVES to sit on my front door and chirp loudly at 5am He came back two days ago! ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿฅฑ
You know the seasons are changing when....
Time is coming to re-pot, chop and prop ๐Ÿฅฐ
I know itโ€™s Spring because my plants are starting to bloom!
My winter white dwarf hamster is no longer my white baby !
Snow drops!
Mine isnโ€™t plant related. Itโ€™s a weird dream I have that tells me Spring is here. It starts off with me being about 9, playing alongside a house I grew up in at that time. I hear a cat and go to the front to see it pinned between a chain link fence post and the front porch. Itโ€™s pregnant so itโ€™s a bit snug but after massaging her belly on the sides, she squeezes through and as soon as she runs away, I hear birds chirping overhead. I look up and the sun is glaring in my eyes so I look away. When I open my eyes, itโ€™s me really waking up at the yearโ€™s current age and the glare is the sunlight coming through the windows. The birds are chirping and it simply feels like Spring. I can feel it even though bluebonnets havenโ€™t bloomed, nor have the Twxas Mountain Laurels. I have this dream every year and Iโ€™m never off. Weird but true. A few weeks later, mountain laurels bloom and I know itโ€™s time to refill the feeders for our little bird friends.

On another note, we have one cardinal that perches on my exterior bathroom window stoop. It pecks at the glass a few minutes and serves as a reminder to fill the feeders. It has made it itโ€™s personal mission to let me know we need to pour seeds into the feeders.

We also get the verbena popping up along with the orange bulbine in one area weโ€™ve left natural.

Canna Lili bulbs/tubers are emerging with new foliage.
My prayer plant Calypso gave me her first flower this week, itโ€™s the same color as the snow falling outside but also a reminder that the end is in sight ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿชดโ„๏ธ
As a Floridan ๐ŸŠ Spring is here when it feels like Summer dropped kick Spring and everything looks like a Twinkie from all the pollen ๐Ÿคง

Good luck, everyone! Happy Spring! โœจ๏ธ
@EducatedBeech I LOVE dwarf hamsters! ๐Ÿฅฐ so cute!!
@MeganO omg so beautiful! Here in Texas our early bloomers are the mountain laurels and red buds ๐Ÿฅฐ
I started planting bluebonnets! Canโ€™t wait for them to start blooming!! ๐ŸŒธ

Early birthday present to me! ๐Ÿชด
I know spring is here because our beloved purple martins are nesting in their bird houses. They arrive from South America each spring โค๏ธ
When all the beautiful flowers come up, both native and non-native
@kscape happy early birthday ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅณ
Hi guys! Meet Gertie. It must be #spring because her folks packed a picnic at the lake, but forgot her bathing suit!

Here she is, swinging from a rope swing, toes pointed, unabashed, about to splash into a lake. Spring is Gertieโ€™s favorite season. She is free and content, taking in the sun and the warm breeze, ready to let go of winter.

She is hoping to win the contest so she can make more planty friends โ˜บ๏ธ
Thisโ€ฆthis is how we know in NC. Besides everything covered in yellow dustโ€ฆ.
The wisteria trees in my part of NC have bloomed despite it being 38 degrees outside ๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿฅถ
@Captjo thank you!!!
Spring in Pennsylvania is heralded by snowstorms lol
@JanaiC youโ€™re welcome. I probably should have included my username with the Venmo note. My name is Joellen Bulgrin
@Hypsie I love this! Lol
The peonies are coming!!!!! ๐ŸŒธ
Sheโ€™s out !!! Itโ€™s warm enough I guess ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿคฃ #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #HappyPlants #PlantAddict #naturefinds #GatorGreggers
I know itโ€™s Spring when My Lillieโ€™s are poking through! Thanks for this chance!!
New growth! Spring has sprung and everything is twitterpated!
I know itโ€™s spring bc of the magnolia trees and cherry blossoms!
Spring means to me the birds chirping trees greener new blooms some planting time, some repotting time, new leaves unfurling pests start to come out n lots of seedlings babies hope this was good lol
This all means spring is on its way to Ohio. Yay Zone 6!
I know its spring because...

My spidey-senses are tingling... and my thumbs are beginning to go in Hulk-Mode. Except its Hulk Plant.. not smash.
I can tell bc my left knee hurts... (Thats my weather/season predicting knee)..

The other knee tells me when someone has wacky tobaccy
I can feel its spring in my spleen. The spleen is keen with seasonal glee
Purple flowers and daffodils! ๐Ÿคฉ
My dog came in wet and muddy for the first time instead of icy paws! โ„๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ง (pic from just a couple days ago! Michigan is brutal this year!)
Blooms, bees, veggies, and repots & roots!
Spring๐Ÿ’— โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿƒwhen my dragon wants to bask outside in the sun all day and new growth on my turtle shells๐ŸŒฑโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ’—
Honestly when my little pittie sits her butt down outside and enjoys the sunshine! ๐Ÿถ
Because my Hoya looks like THIS and it brings great anticipation
The doggo basking in the longer days and shedding like crazy!
Well itโ€™s autumn here now, but back in September I love it when my freesia start to bloom. Thatโ€™s when I know spring has truly begun in my garden and home ๐Ÿฅฐ
When Lowes and HD are packed full of ๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“ช๐“ต๐“ฝ๐“ฑ๐”‚ plants again and also so many people!

When I suddenly have a lot of repotting to do!

When I'm no longer nervous to order plants and have them shipped!

When my plants start drying out faster than normal!

๐ŸคYou guys are absolutely awesome for doing these monthly giveaways! ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ’š
Spring means new blooms and new plants. I have six begonias on the way. I plan to give away my larger plants to make room for new ones. Also, time to repot everything! ๐Ÿค˜
Every year the first thing that starts to show new life is the irisesโ€ฆ I literally count down the days from hereโ€ฆ
The stunning dogwood trees are blooming
Just one entry per person?
@HyggeVibes yes, single entry only!
My neighbors peach tree, once barren, is now full of pretty little flowers that cover my yard with pink petals this time of the year.
@stryker49 we have woodpeckers - those but balls like to pound on the metal downspouts at daybreak. Specifically the one right outside our bedroom ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
@Roserade #GAGregGang pretty right there with you! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
@EmGrowsPlants so cute ๐Ÿฅฐ
My pink camellias are starting to bloom and I see some green leaves poking out of my hydrangeas again! ๐Ÿƒ
