Let's dwell on springy things!
Spring is ...
Green! Fresh! Floral!
The sun is out here in Houston and in the warm dirt bulbs are pushing through. I've been checking the flower bed and after a bit of cold rain last weekend, POP! Green tender shoots peeking up through the mulch.
Soon the smell of honeysuckle and cut grass will fill the yard.
Ahhh, I love it.

And I can't talk about spring without mentioning Texas storms. Scary, exciting and dramatic. Oh how I love a nice afternoon thunderstorm. You can smell it moving in. The roiling clouds make such beautiful and mesmerizing shows in the southern skies. And then when the storm passes it feels like everything has been washed and refreshed. The sky is so clear, the birds all come out to play and the greenery perks up. I just love lazy spring days ending in showy thunderstorms.

I just had to rearrange the hutch in my office and get out the jadeite. I feel the need today to be surrounded by bright sunny colors and sunlight.
Is it warm yet where you are? What is it you look forward to in the spring?
