in search of Spring

Today we headed out the door on a Grand Adventure - with the intent of searching out signs of Spring.

First up -
Construction.Yup. Construction is definitely a Sign Of Spring.
(Who cares that it's been going on for a month or more? We're counting it!)

We were thinking bugs, green living things, bird nests, flowers, whatever we could find.
We were on a mission.
Oooooh, moss!
Tiny yarrow leaflets. Oh - that for sure counts!
"Jasmine? Is it okay if we stop for a minute? I'm getting dizzy rolling down this hill. And I don't want to mess up my hair. I want to look as handsome as I can!"Twidderpated.
Definitely spring.
Stop off for a Pina Colada slurpee.
That definitely counts.

Home sweet home.


  1. I like the 7-Eleven logo in the background.
    I'm also thinking how much I want to move somewhere warmer. My yard is covered with 3 feet of snow.

  2. Well - sometimes we have more snow.
    Sometimes less.
    The three days of rain went a loooong way toward melting a lot of it.
    Fine with me!

    It's really only been nice for a few days around here (the rainy days and then two days of sunshine.)

    We just jump right on it when it is!

    Hang in there!!

  3. See when its never really winter, its harder to know when spring is. My daffodils bloomed a few weeks ago. but there are no buds on the deciduous trees. It doesn't get to freezing temperatures, but it doesn't get super warm either. I love this post of the fun signs that spring is coming that come with a real winter.


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
