Springing Forward

 We are springing forward after days of cold rain. . .

which brought the lake back to full pond. . .


 Trees are budding. . .

It’s thrilling to see the Daffodils . . .

  and enjoy the sunshine. . .

 “If you’ve never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom.”

    Absolutely lovely! What an excellent way to welcome Spring! We have trees and flowers in bloom where I am as well…we both must have temperate climates! Thanks so much for sharing… *Ü*

    Gorgeous Mary! I can hardly wait for trees budding here. We have seen a few green shoots. They are saying snow for tonight or tomorrow, but nothing much. Even big snows don’t last long in March…hopefully.:-)

    Wishing I could sit on our patio and watch spring appear, but alas tis only 40 degrees outside and it’s just plain cold! Enjoy!!! Your pictures are just beautiful!

    Oooohhh…the budding trees are so beautiful! Even though spring brings horrible allergies for me, I can’t help but love the freshness in the air and all the brilliance of sprouting color! I can’t wait for consistent good weather to hit our neck o’ the woods. We’re actually expecting SNOW tonight into tomorrow morning!!! Two – eight inches, depending on how far north one lives. Can you imagine?!??!!! I just went to the doggone nursery today to buy pansies and such! :-( I guess there will be no planting for a few days still! I hope you continue to enjoy the blessings of spring!

    I’m yearning to see those views! We still have snow cover but it will be melting fast this week. I think we are slower than usual to warm up this year. What lovely flower and water scenes.

    My soul was thrilled today when I looked out the window and my little crop of bluebonnets had popped out with much color. With the yellow daffodils waving near by, it was true music to my soul.
    Happy Spring!!! ~ Sarah
