Spring Is Coming!!

This morning the sky is gray and cloudy, and it’s still somewhat chilly

but…..

stepping outside onto the front porch, I hear birds singing.
Spring is coming.

There are daffodil shoots coming up in the backyard,

The heather is blooming like crazy.

Something else springing up from the ground, pushing its way through the black soil.

Gorgeous white flowers are blooming along the front of the house-

they look nondescript from the top, but get down on their level and….

Oh my goodness. God is so awesome.

The pussy willow tree is budding, as are several other little bushes around the yard.

I’m so excited for everything to burst into green and color and for baby cows to appear in the field next door!

We had sunshine this past week, and it was 60 degrees!

The kids and my mother and I spent a lot of the day outside, pruning overgrown bushes and cleaning up; getting ready for new growth. The sun had warmth. It was wonderful!!  More days just like that are coming. And I’m welcoming them with open arms. 🙂

My three-year old, Eliana took this picture. Amazing!
