Spring Has Sprung – Carnival of Personal Finance #199

by ABC

I thought it would be nice to have a pleasant, non-investing-related theme today since normally this blog is all about investing – more specifically it’s a learn to invest blog for learning the basics of investing.  If this is your first time here then feel free to poke around – all the articles are nice and short!

tuilps

Back to the “spring” theme – one of my favorite parts of spring is seeing all the bulbs spring up into beautiful flowers.  Here are the editor’s picks for this carnival – the “tulips of the carnival”:

dwarfdaffies

I like daffodils because they are one of the first big spring flowers to appear.

robin1

Robins are one of the traditional “first signs of spring”.

wet_basement

Ahh…the good ol’ flooded basement.  I don’t really associate this with spring since our basement floods every time it rains – regardless of the season!

river_melt

Mountain river in the spring.  Athabascan river on a nice spring day near Jasper, Alberta.

snowdrops2

These dainty snowdrops are usually among the first signs of color in the spring.

crocus

Finally, we have the pretty crocus – they don’t last long but they make a big impression.
