Spring

Spring fever is all over blogville


The definition of spring is:
A time of growth and renewal.
The season of the year where the weather becomes warmer and plants revive.

March 21st is the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and for those who have endured months and months of cold, barren, snowed in, sunless skies, the anticipation of spring is hard to contain.

For us here in the Southern Hemisphere it is perhaps, not so brilliant, but it is the one time of the year we can truly be free....not only of coats, shoes and etc. but also fans and Air conditioning. Where we can actually breathe fresh air and open the doors without something of great cost flying out (electricity).

These were some words I found describing spring:
warm, rain, flowers, outdoor playing, time change, Easter, spring break, spring cleaning, fresh air, flowers, bugs, cherry blossoms, sun, new life, nature awakening, green haze, drifting clouds, soaring kites, chirping nesting birds, spongy earth and roaring creeks.

It is indeed different things to different people but one thing is for sure................it's a change we can count on!

Here are a few glimpses of my spring......................









and here's wishing you................................ Flower
a blooming one!

That picture of that pig is adorable!

I'm in Atlanta where spring time is not a season - it is a blessing.

I can't wait for spring. Our weather is warming up a bit, but only a couple of Daffodils blooming. Love the pig!

We are having a nice sunny above-freezing week, but I think it might get cold again by Friday.... however, never mind, I intend to enjoy the sunshine.
And I shall shovel the remaining bit of snow off my patio so that I can sit out there and have my morning coffee in the sunshine (while dressed in my winter coat over my jammies!).
