Signs of Spring in Milwaukie, Oregon

With grey skies and rain it doesn't look like Spring is on the way but our dogwood trees out front are pushing
The little blue bells around the base of the trees are sticking their head up out of their beds,
Rain drops cling to the Lace Leaf Maple branches

The Heather is in bloom (with a few stray blue bells trying to grow in there) It's hard to get rid of those little blue bells. You think you have the little bulb and root system out but come Spring,...Surprise.

And not to be out done, all the tulips and daffodils we replanted are shooting up. We look forward to going to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival each year and adding more bulbs to our flower beds.
