The next sign was revealed to me yesterday evening. As I drove to handbell practice I passed a baseball field with little leaguers practicing; when I returned after practice the field was full of softball girls and their dads involved in practice. Ah, the first games of the season must be near. As I drove on a little way I got a whiff of freshly mowed grass, what a welcome smell! Spring is in the air.
Tonight I didn't need the warmer temperatures to tell me it is spring. I went outside and started moving plants around, watering them, and beginning the spring clean up; when I get motivated to do those things I know the season has changed. But wait, I found more signs as I worked.
|The mountain laurel is blooming!|
|The pansies and violas have put forth more blooms|
|The biggest surprise was the iris! Two blooms and another one forming!|
Yes, the signs are everywhere. The only thing missing is the bluebonnets. I have yet to see the first one, but hope to over the weekend. We've had rain, so I know they are there but running a little late.
|Happy Spring, may it come to each of you soon!|
