Signs of Spring At Last

We’ve had a freaky winter.  On most days it felt like spring rather than winter, but with all the plant life in hibernation, not having the snow we’re used to this year, made winter extra drab and boring.

Now we’re having a week of weather we normally see in May rather than March, with temps in the 70′s.  If it would stay that way throughout the summer, I’d be one happy camper.  Here’s hoping it doesn’t mean extremely hot and humid trend for the summer, because that would mean endless bad hair days.

But with the even warmer-than-normal weather, finally we’re seeing some signs of life to alleviate the drabness:

Oh yeah. I’m ready for more color.  Bring on the spring.  Are you ready for spring, or has it already sprung in your neighborhood?

The only Spring I’ve seen is kids playing soccer, kids at the playgrounds, more mothers walking their babies, and me walking my fat dog. I have a park across the street from me so it’s really cool to hear everything going on from kids yelling and whistles blowing. No baseball games yet, but soon. I even saw two people playing tennis today. Ohhhhhhhhh I remember when, but for now I’m walking here… walking…. and walking… walking and more walking.

I’m missing the change in seasons… I guess we kind of have spring when it’s the rainy season, spring and summer is all I get. I miss seeing Tulips and squirrels…

At last it is spring. I have been waiting it after my nightmare from the last year due to winter season. You can now see beautiful flowers grow during this season.

Spring is starting to peek out here too. We could still get another cold snap though, so it kind of makes me sad to see new life blooming and a frost could steal it away. Can’t wait for the daffodils and tulips though!

Happy WW!

We never had spring here in the Philippines because we only have two seasons. I wish someday I will be able to experience this kind of season. I think it would be fun to see flowers bloom and grasses grow greener.

Thanks for sharing!

This winter was “mild”, to say the least…and I, too, fear summer.

Isn’t refreshing to see that pop of color? I’m still tryin’ to find it around us, but I’m sure I’ll find it soon enough.

Thanks for stoppin’ by…off to exchange my kicks for a bigger size today!

Spring is up and rolling in our area! Even the bluebonnets are already out, scattered across the Texas roadways. They came very early this year.
So glad to see you’re getting signs of spring! :)
