Welcome SPRING!

Yes, I know some of the country is still in the embrace of winter and we are still in for some wacky weather. Yet, for me, spring means hope. There is hope that the weather will turn and the sun will return. Hope that I will be warm and my mood will brighten with the days. Hope for long evening walks in the dusk. That is why I love spring even with its storms and unpredictability--hope.

Have your rhodies started blooming yet, Juanita? Ours have and that means spring to me.

Nettie~ Thanks.

AB~ Sorry 'bout that!

Patrick~ Not yet. Ours are on the north side of the house. The buds are swelling though, so it will be soon. I'll post pics as soon as they do.

Juanita that is a fantastic post.

I am uncovering the bananas tomorrow. The ammarillis is starting to make leaves. I'll be putting in caladiums soon.

Our climates are so different. We have to share flower pictures this year.

I created a post about Spring over at my place that is both introspective and, I hope, humorous. Spring is my favorite time of year. It represents new hope to me.

On the first day of spring it snowed here in KC. And we hardly got any snow this winter. Weird!!

Uh, I sort of feel like the Grinch who stole Christmas here. Winter is my favorite time of the year. I guess that's because I live in Texas and it get's unbearably hot here in the summer, and spring is the precurser of that.

Our winters are mild. All sorts of things grow here in the winter that won't survive the summers; like pansies, for example. Our winter gardens are wonderful. In the winter we can grow brussel sprouts, broccoli and all sorts of colder weather veggies.

But I do love the picture. It's gorgeous! :)
