Is it Spring Yet????










You all know that dreaded
question...
You have just left on a
road trip and from the
back seat comes
a little voice...

"Are we there yet?"

Maybe you don't have kids
yet...but you were one once
and more likely than not
you have uttered that
question.

That is how I am beginning
to feel about Spring.

Is it here yet??

It keeps teasing us.

We had 60 degree temps on
Monday...people had their windows
open,
Children wore shorts...

Now it is cold and windy....
Mean, actually!

Shelley, what does your
smart meteorologist hubby have
to say about the subject?

We always trusted his predictions
on the weather more than anything
we heard on radio or tv.

Please say the groundhog
was wrong
and
Spring is coming soon.

I want to see green....
all the various shades as the
new leaves peek out of their hiding
places in the tree to see if it is safe
and then all of a sudden the
"all clear signal"
must be given because one day the
leaves just pop into full loveliness.







I want to see the brave little soldier
stems of the tulips and daffodils that
push and push and push through just
thawed earth to stand up straight and
color the earth with the first palette
of Spring.



Reds, yellows,
purples and pinks...sigh.







I long to smell the unmistakable scent
of thawing earth and that of the
flowering trees.

Oh, if only I had planted that box of
200 bulbs!

Actually, that is just a joke.

Those bulbs are going into containers
this week and will be set out close to the house.
I saw an article that shows how to layer the
bulbs, as if you were making lasagna
and they will bloom all of spring...
in waves.

Hope it works!

For those of us who are in the midst
of a cold
winter season....
I say, "Bring on the Spring!"

I am ready for some beauty!

How about you?

Spring is here in Georgia! The daffodils are blooming, the spring storms are here. It's an early spring for the South. I love those flowers you have falling from your banner!
