Ahhhhh, Spring... it has been too long of a winter in my life and with the season.

But, wait... there is a little bud of hope for new growth. The days have begun to grow longer and the snow is slowly ebbing away here in Iowa.

Haven't seen any motorcycles or bugs yet... When I do, I will know it is spring :))

Am planning a bigger garden for this year. Can hardly wait until I eat my meals directly from my garden. Ahhhhhh, Spring, please hurry up.

I just love SPRING in Iowa... all of the song birds are back now...except we are still waiting for the little wrens to set up house in their backyard apartment, er, birdhouse.

The robins are so pretty with their orange breasts as they have one eye on the ground for an unlucky worm. Just love to wake up to the sound of their song even when it is at FOUR A.M. :).

The newly overturned soil appears so black as it lies in contrast to the various hues of the new greens. Planting has begun in some areas, but there is always the chance of freezing conditions. It is such a relief to get everything in early, which in some years set up the scenario for the never ending game of chance between gardener/farmer and mother nature.

April showers bring May flowers... we are finally getting some much needed rain... but like with many springs once the faucet is turned on it doesn't get turned off right away. Some areas in Iowa are experiencing flooding as severe storms this weekend... alas... this is spring in Iowa.

Ahhhhhh Spring... a time of contrasts...

- fresh sprouts amongst the brittle skeletal remains of plants
- lazy, gentle rains or upheaval and horrific damage of violent storms
- almost hot afternoons and very chilly mornings
- 80 degrees one week and hard frost warnings the next week

Never a boring time in springtime

The things I love about spring...

- newborn calves and lambs
- frisky squirrels
- new green colors of the trees, grasses, and budding flowers
- warming temperatures
- sleeping with windows open again
- motorcycles and smiling riders
- getting my hands in the dirt and soil
- removing patio furniture from the shed and sitting outside
- mosquito bites (okay I have to re-think that one...just because I got two last night doesn't mean I enjoy them :)

Today I bought some seeds so I can start lettuce and spinach in our greenhouse this weekend. I can hardly wait until I can just go out to the greenhouse and pick enough for supper each evening meal. Time to start radishes too. They can grow along side the lettuce. Sometimes I will pick some of the radish seedlings that I need to pull to space out the plants. I add the seedlings to the salads as well. They add a nice little spice.

As some of you know, I really relish the different seasons with spring and fall being my favorites.

Ahhhh, Spring. I have spring fever so bad this year. All I can think about is getting out into the garden area and getting my new plants started. Also it has been a long winter with a room full of wintering plants. Clyde the cactus is almost 6 foot tall now and then we have an aloe plant that is about as big around as a bushel basket...not counting all of the smaller trees and plants. We are sooooooo ready for them to be able to go outside.

I love the fresh smells of spring and can hardly wait for that first thunderstorm of the season. After the thunder and lightening, the outdoors just starts to come alive with greens.

What are your thoughts about spring... Please share your likes, dislikes (wait until I come across my first huge spider...) of the season when, supposedly a young man's (woman's) fancy turns to romance.... :)

What is your favorite thing about spring. Is it the smells? The things you can do? Or the way it makes you feel? Feel free to check in to share anything you can think of about spring that thrills you, enlightens you, and my inspire others.

The sharing could be a poem, a personal experience, a thought, or an emoticon. Be creative and relish in the playfulness of sharing something new with the rest of us. Enjoy, my friends!
