Ready for Spring?

Spring has arrived--almost! Today it was 58 degrees and almost melted the two glaciers in our backyard. Green grass is starting to perk up and I saw some tiny yellow flowers as I took a 5-mile walk/jog/run today. Maybe they were weeds, but who cares? It was something other than "snow." This has been a long winter and I'm passionate about spring (new birth) that I can't wait for the daffodils and tulips to emerge from the cold, hard earth. Lately, I've been filling the house with fresh flowers--like the roses you see in this picture--just to remind me that there is a cycle to life: fall, winter, spring, and summer. Some of the seasons last longer than expected--like this winter.

To help me get in the mood faster, I'll be flying to California to visit my family for Easter. A much welcome change (the trees are in full bloom there!). If I need to, I'll bring my glue gun and put the blossoms back on the trees while I'm there.

If you're passionate about a certain season, let me hear about it (but please don't say "winter")!

Hi Connie, just popping through your blog. Nice to meet you :)

I created the writing tips of the day box that you have on your sidebar. I see that it's stretching down on your sidebar. If you need help with fixing it, don't hesitate to write, I can fix it for you.

And, I'm extremely passionate about spring. There's nothing like melting snow and puddles ushering in the greatest season there is.

Hi Darlene,

Well, so much for spring (we now have 14 inches of fresh snow on top of the crocuses!). We went from 75 degrees to a blizzard in two days--talk about "changing" seasons. The snow shovel is back out!

I'm with you...spring is my favorite season--new birth!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Connie!

Okay, my favorite season is Fall. Some people view it as a depressing time, but I feel just the opposite! I love the cool, crisp air and the brilliant golds, reds, yellows, and oranges sprayed across the trees like a brilliant sunrise! Besides, it's a great time to hike. I love to view God's masterpiece from top of a lofty mountain...

Living the Adventure,
