Welcome Spring! ......



Spring is officially here - finally! Everything is turning green - the fields are a bright green and my yard is beginning to look alive again. This is such a pretty time of year - things look so fresh and clean.

I always thought the calendar had it wrong. The New Year should be in the spring instead of in the middle of winter. This time of year is more suited to fresh starts and rebirth. This is the time of year to throw open the windows and let in the fresh air. It's time to clear out the clutter in our lives as well as our homes.

I've never been a cold weather person. Summer is my favorite season, but spring is a close second. So, I'm welcoming spring with joy and anticipation.

Moving the New Year... not a bad idea! Spring is definitely here... As of this morning my yard offically has no more snow on it. That is quite a significant event up here on the frozen tundra. Now we're getting into the rainy month of the year, but I could care less. No ice. No snow. Mild temperatures. Bliss.

I usually like winter, but this one seemed too long. I'm glad to see the signs of spring everywhere. Though the hardwoods in our woods still have a ways to go before they leaf out and green up.

Hi! Thanks for reading my blog--I really like yours!

We call our patio fan the "Virginia Breeze." ;-)

Great idea about changing the date for New Year!
Today I went to a nursery and bought six primroses -- yellow and orange (these are heavily fragrant). I'll plant them in a pot tomorrow.

SVB - Im sorry. I did it again. I rejected your comment. I need better mouse control, i know. I am hanging my head in shame.

I vote for moving the New Year' s start to spring, too.

Spring shows such promise. I love how the redbuds here are almost ready to bloom and how green the hayfields already are.

Of course, we're still dealing with some downed trees from the snowfall and last week's rain .. . .
