It’s Spring!

Welcome to Spring!

Pretty soon, everything will be blooming and nature will put on a vast and varied treat for the eyes.

In fact, my lilac bushes and the trees in my neighborhood are already budding.

The Daffodils and Lilies and Mint are pushing through the recently frozen ground…

and giving way to the promise to perfume the air and color the landscape. (that was rather poetic, was it not?!)

Wow! Those photos make it look like they’re really growing, doesn’t it?

Actually, I laid on the ground (the neighbors didn’t look at me like I was crazy at all) and put the camera down in a low spot.

The plants are 1 – 1.5 inches tall at most.

But after the dreary and colorless (that may be a bit dramatic) end of Winter, they seem like mighty giants!

Yay for Spring!

Thanks for stopping by – come back any time. Cheers!

Tonight’s the Night

Thought I’d take the time to remind you:

…As if anyone actually needs to be reminded!

I mean, it’s not like Spring is just around the corner or anything!

(can you feel it?!)

Anyway, enjoy your [shortened] weekend!

In Like a Lamb

Welcome to March!

We were supposed to get some snow, but there was just a ‘dusting’ (I don’t think that counts!) so the new month is beginning… well… lamb-ish.

The sun is shining brightly through the trees:

(yes, that one didn’t drop its leaves before winter… gives us some extra yard work to look forward to in Spring. blech!)

And, while there was a cat on the prowl:

There was no lion!

Not at midnight, nor at noon.

Anyway, you know I love how pretty snow is.

And the warmth of the sunshine is nice.

But, I wonder…

is it too much to hope that March goes out like a lamb, too?

We only have to wait and see!
