Signs of Spring

March 1st brings a special warmth, even if it is cold. It tells me that spring is just peeking around the corner, waiting for the perfect time to spring (pun intended).

After a long winter of bitter cold, shorter days, and spending too much time inside, I'm ready for the lilacs blooming, leaves budding and flowers peeping up from the ground. I'm ready to see the sun for a bit longer during the day. I'm ready for all the happy sounds and delightful sights of spring

    • Thank you Isadora! Spring is my favorite time of the year too! The yard looks lovely and I don’t have to do a lot of watering! Ha! (We don’t get a lot of moisture here).

  1. It feels like Spring here already, with the trees blossoming out and turning green! Crossing my fingers we don’t get one more blast of cold, though, as sometimes happens.

  2. Me too!! I’m so over this cold weather and NOW we get snow! But, there is something about March 1 that warms the soul even if the feet are still cold! 😊

  3. Simply beautiful! I can’t wait either…love your picture, especially the one you painted in my head with your descriptions…ahhh! xo

      • HA! I ended canceling it and having them switch me back…as I was in the process of doing it I discovered that WordPress does not allow you to move everything easily. If you want to move your images you have to do that manually…like upload them to your new site one by one…I have almost a year’s worth of pics, like almost 365 of them!!! So until I figure something out I’ll have to stay here. Not that it’s a bad thing, I would just have more options, greater exposure, google and other search engines would list me higher, email like debbie@onceuponahotflash.com etc. oh well…I might run two sites until I have the other one up to date..not sure yet what to do!

  4. Happy March! Here it really came in like a lion, since last week was warm and all the snow melted, and then this morning it was -17 degrees Celsius, with about 4 inches of snow. That’s March for you. πŸ™‚

    • Oh no! That was just a tease before winter hit ya’ll again. It was 65 deg. F here today and is suppose to be in the 70’s during the next week but I think after that we have a cold front coming in. That is how March is for us. We had a harder winter than usual this year.

  5. Awwee… I haven’t experienced spring. *Sigh*
    Enjoy the blossoming flowers PJ! And the sun. And the bird’s songs. And all bright and vibrant colors. πŸ˜€

  6. I like winter, but we really only got winter in snippets. Spring, and sometimes it seems, summer-have been poking in all winter long. Now that I’m done with winter, it comes back!!!!! Stop the madness! πŸ˜‰

  7. Spring sprang early in California, although we are expecting a major “winter” storm over the next few days! Some of those special spring sounds may be me sneezing due to early allergies…aaachhhhooooo! Hope spring hits you soon!

I would love to read your thoughts...
