Is it Spring already?

We have been experiencing very weird weather lately .....(global warming or not!!!) It rains most of the nights and we wake up to a beautiful morning with the world around us glistening in the sunshine.........There's a perceptible nip in the air....I say "perceptible" coz going by the freezing temp. in north, it's just that..perceptible :)

The chestnut trees are beginning to bloom and lilacs are in bud. The chill in the night wilts the leaves and flowers only to see them ready to bloom in the morning sunshine......Are these budding trees murmuring "spring" softly?? In Florida, it's always a subtle change in seasons....no loud proclamations for us sans one: SUMMER :D....I am waiting to see tiny leaves spring out of those bare branches......trees cloaked back in their lush clothings, perfect, untouchable patches of blue skies, skies so blue that u'd think somebody spilled the Tidy Bowl (I wish u'd click on the first pic to have a look)...and myriad other promises that Spring softly ambles in with :)

This post marks a year of the existence of this blog....it's been a joyful ride, with tons of friends across the globe adding their li'l inputs and making the jouney all the more worthwhile.......This one's for us and many more posts to come and new frdships to be forged :)

PS: In the second pic, I love the li'l bee there doing what it does the best.....on its way to making honey :)

So pretty. :)

It's been nice meeting you, moi, and seeing your corner of the world thru pics. Here's to another year.

To answer your question about pics: I post my pics to a flickr acct (www.flickr.com) & then select the HTML from there, which I paste into blogger. With flickr you have your choice of image size (I always choose medium). The acct. is free to 200 pictures.

Enjoy the spring! ;)

Hi Moi,

It IS spring for you and soon will be spring for me in Little Rock. I always look forward to the middle of February, for that is when the seasons make the turn. This morning, when I awoke, the temperature was 56 degrees.

Bliss . . .
