Spring is a time of Renewal, Rebirth, and HopeÖ

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

The vernal equinox arrived at 1:14 A.M. (ET) this morning, marking the earliest start to spring in 116 years.

Spring arrived today! emoticonHappy Days! As I walked outside yesterday to get my mail I noticed all of my crocuses were up. My irises were starting to break thru the ground, so many new green little shoots. I can hardly wait for the beautiful purple flowers. I love this time of year.

Spring is a time of:

With Spring
As the sun shines brighter and longer on our days
The earth begins to awaken.

Like a sleepy, stretching child
She slowly sends her shoots, tiny but strong
Reaching upward out of the darkness
Into the light.

    Around here it's felt like spring for a while. I love it though, I love being outside with the sun shining and it's warm out. Doesn't get much better then that.

    Yes spring is making its loveliness known, here too the bulbs are in bloom and we are having lovely colors everywhere. I always think of my Gran this time of the year she had such a lovely garden.
time for the joys of rebirth.

    One of my lilac bushes has buds on it. Please God, don't let a late frost kill it before I see what color the flowers are. I don't remember what color lilac I planted 3 years ago. Frost got it last year!!
