Spring has eluded us for quite some time. It has been here for a few weeks, in reality, but the weather has not been very convincing. Warmer weather teases us briefly, and then it goes away, leaving us with chilly air, giving us goosebumps.
Lately we have had a few days in the late 50’s, early 60’s, and I am convinced that it is, indeed, Spring. We had a few days of rain that helped replace some of the brown grass with green, and I see buds on the trees, and even some flowers.
There are two things I really enjoy about Spring: Warmer weather, when we can take off our Winter jackets. Color! Everything seems to go from brown and gray to glorious green, pink, white, and red.
I enjoy life no matter what season. I appreciate each season in its own way, and each helps me to be grateful for the next. Winter is cold and gray at times, but snow can be beautiful. It is nice not to have to worry about pesky bugs for a while. But there is something about Spring after all of that cold, where everything comes back to life, and I feel like I have reawakened! It is nice to get outside more, and to feel comfortable doing so.
Right now my windows are open, letting in fresh air. My rose plant, sitting near a window, is thriving more than it ever has, and I enjoy the color.
We are almost 1/3 of the way through this season, and it is bound to get more pleasant. It is time to think about Spring cleaning, and make plans for trips in warmer weather, and to take photos of everything as it awakens from slumber. Have a beautiful Spring!
