Looking For Spring



We have had warmer weather the past few weeks and it makes me long for spring,I love spring when the days are warm and the nights are cool. When you don't have to wear a coat and can enjoy longer days and warm sunshine. When you can listen to the birds during the day and the frogs at night, when you can watch the bee's gathering pollen and the butterflies fluttering from flower to flower.When I can sit on the deck and read a book with a warm breeze and a cool drink.I took these photos in my backyard right before dark, the first one is of ny butterfly bush which is beautiful in the summer (please excuse the leaves I have raked 3 times already) and the second photo is my japanese maple ( you can see why we can't get dish because of so many trees). Hope you have had a wonderful day.....Barb

What wonderful winter photos... I too long for that time of year. Spring, summer and fall are my favorite seasons. I am really lucky that I live in NC and the winters are mild and short.

I am so ready for Spring, too! My sandals are all lined up in my closet waiting! The trees look lovely...I bet they look wonderful with snow on them, too, though.
