printemps

spring has arrived and i won't hear any more of winter's fury.
this is the time of year when hope is refreshed.
new life is aching to break forth from the frozen ground
foraging birds are in preparation for beginning their families.

i love this time of year!

Okay, I might have been last on the previous post but maybe first on this one?
YES... spring is here officially and that means the earth will respond... right? No more of winter for you.

(And this is the time of year I am grasping onto the last bits of any cool weather with all my might hoping it doesn't turn too soon.)

Isn't it always the way? LOL
Love those pretty flowers in the photo. Where/when/ is that?

it is fun to be the first isn't it. rare for me. i was thinking the earth under me needs to respond for sure. we are having lovely days of cool temps but the sun is shining and then at night it is still quite cold. i took my growing sprouts outside today for some warm sunshine.
that photo is from the web i put that at the end of the post right under my name. i love how bright it was and that is what i was feeling but didn't have a photo to show it, that is the first time i have done that.
