Signs of Spring!! (Last YEAR!!...we are in a BLIZZARD here today~!)

All I could think of to stay sane today was to post-process some pictures I took last May.....
You see, the U.P. is having a blizzard today in our part of Michigan.  Already have gotten another 4 inches of snow and it doesn't look like it is slowing down anytime soon.
I always have a ton of images that I haven't had time to post process, so that was I decided I would do today....pick some wonderfully happy, gloriously warm past days that I captured with my lens and think SPRING as much as possible.
These shots were taken in May last year...just after the snow melted here and the first few spring flowers broke through the forest floor.
Spring Beauties:

I found a mushroom on a log that formed a perfect rose!:
Dutchman's Britches beside a spring waterfall:
Blue Indigo bird on spring branches:
Spring waterfall in the emerging green wood:
Single Trout Lily:
Spring Beauties growing on the rock wall:
Trout Lilies by the tree:
There, now I feel a little bit better....
How about YOU?
It is supposed to continue to snow for two more days in a row.
I am not sure I can take it.
So, be prepared for more spring pictures soon.
It's therapy...........................
