A sign of spring...or not yet

Thursday, May 11, 2017

This is what our yard looked like two days ago!

This is what it looks like now:

Yes, those are snow clouds, doing what snow clouds do best: painting our valley white again. We woke up this morning to find a thick layer covering everything, and it was just slightly discombobulating because for a moment, I couldn't remember what season it was. Fall? Winter? Spring? A combo? Huh?

Then I remembered: this happens every year. And Spring IS coming even if it's wearing a white coat at the moment. I know that because 1) the daffodils are still blooming, 2) the grass is still greening, and 3) the Robins are still singing.

Oh, and as I was looking out the kitchen window this afternoon, I saw the very first Eastern Bluebird of the season!! It made me shriek with delight! Ibs can testify to this fact. I LOVE bluebirds.

I'm still waiting for the Indigo Bunting to show up. Any day now...


  1. Those flowers are lovely! It'll look like spring again soon!


    1. Yes, you are so right!! Thank you for the encouragement :) The sun finally popped out this morning and it's feeling very much like spring...I LOVE this season!
