Growing Up ~ Spring

Spring is my favorite season
and although this week-end
we had nothing but rain
it was still so nice
as everything is so green

coming home from the grocery store on Saturday
lugging bags ~ my head was down
and then I stopped
and looked around
breathed deep
it's Spring ~ finally

it feels like Spring
it smells like Spring
it looks like Spring

the grass is growing ~ and so green
the tulips are bursting

my flower beds are a mess
as it has been so wet
I have not had a chance to get out there
and clean out all the old stuff
but the new foliage does not care
as it is blooming
smiling up at me ~ green!!

the forsythia is happy and showing off

the lilacs will be blooming soon

my favorite shrub in the yard
I am yearning for sunshine so I can get outside
and enjoy it all

Sunday was spent at home
as I hosted the family here
both Mom's
family ~ food & laughter

Hope you all had a great week-end!

Hi Lori,
What lovely images of Spring....such a beautiful time of year. We have been so lucky here in the UK as the weather has been beautiful for about 6 weeks now. The hottest April for 400 years apparently !!
Thanks so much for your lovely comment. I'm so sorry that I've not been around for a while.....massive computer and blogger trouble but, I think I'm back on track now, although I'm not holding my breath !!!
Enjoy the new growth of Spring. XXXX

I love your tulips and forget me nots... those always reminds me of my grammy. I bet you didn't think all your snow would give way to spring, but she made it!

Have a great week sweets,



Spring has finally come to Chicago, too. I am enjoying always having the windows open and that so many people are out and about. I finally met a neighbor.

Happy Spring, Lori.
