Sunday marks the first official day of Spring. Today we’re actually going to get unseasonably warm weather, with the temperatures reaching into the low 70’s, but next week will be ‘normal’ spring weather – sunny with some smatterings of rain here and there, and the temperatures not too hot and not too cold. Which means that a repeat of last year’s Spring Awakening will most likely begin to occur.
I thought I’d recycle a post I did last April when Spring was fully upon us, in anticipation for what’s to come.

Signs of Spring
Plants awakening one by one:
Some in a straight line just for fun:
Buds burst forth:
To turn into an awesome blossom:
Fruit Cocktail flowers are pretty in pink:
The tulip center looks like ink:
The goldfish are hungry you can tell…
the water will soon be clear as a bell:
Spring always marks the return of the frog:
And wet footprints of muddy dogs:
One final sight that you can see
A bubble grill waiting patiently…
Hoping for the spring rain to pass
and feel the warmth of the glowing sun
to provide PN more endless fun:
Which brings me to my question(s) for this week:
What signs of Spring do you have where you live (if any yet)? What part of Spring are you most looking forward to?
Have a great weekend!
