The Pictures Aren't So Beautiful, But What They Mean Is

I know that Spring here has not yet sprung, but after a week of sun and some 60 degree weather we can finally see grass again after several months of having everything covered with snow. We will have more snow, maybe a lot, but it will melt fast. These pictures are not so beautiful, but what they mean is....the worst of winter is past and Spring is on it's way.

The snow is melting

There's a hint of green in the grass

and flowers are beginning to grow

A little Madness in the Spring Is wholesome even for the King.
Emily Dickinson

An optimist is the human personification of spring.
Susan J. Bissonette

Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.
Doug Larson


  1. Your flowers make me hopeful. We've had a few days of pretty weather here in Missouri. But our weatherman says not to put the snow shovels up just yet. Thanks for stopping by today.

    Have a fantastic week,

  2. It does just feel different, doesn't it, being not quite spring but definitely toward the tail end of winter. It's getting light earlier in the morning, the sun is at a different angle in the afternoon, the birds are tweeting a little louder, the mockingbirds are staking their claim on the yards. This has been the longest winter in so many ways that just the hint of spring puts in spring in my step!

  3. Don't you just love those first spring flowers? We are in Calif. and the daffodils are blooming. Love, love, love 'em :)

  4. Ah wonderful - to see flowers and bare earth again.

  5. You can tell spring is coming.....all the kids have spring fever and are completely done for the rest of the school year.

  6. I understand your excitement, however, I need to live in a snowy area so I can appreciate the grass a little more. Here the gardeners mow every Friday, year round. Now you have colors to look forward to.

  7. YAY for green!! ;0)

  8. Woohoo!!! I love the green and the spring. I even went outside without my gloves and got dirt under my nail yesterday. I was cravin' me some dirt. At almost 70 here yesterday they have our highs over the weekend in the low to mid 40's. What a tease that Mother Nature is!!!

    Enjoy this day and may it be filled with sweet blessings from above!!!

  9. I´m so glad for you that spring is coming. Winter has been long for you and I´m ready for the season to change also.

  10. Uh Huh, the pictures are nice. We can see in the pictures the snow melting and you have reason to celebrate.

  11. Right now, these photos, this weather outside my window - it's all about hope!!!!! (and, of course, how much winter bites!)

  12. Being able to see grass and the street and no more dirty snow is a SURE sign that Spring is jsut around the corner. YEAH!
