It's official...

...Spring has arrived.
When you live in the Midwest you can't look at the calendar and welcome Spring.
It seldom arrives on time...here we wait for the signs...

...and then we celebrate, s-l-o-w-l-y.
Because Spring may arrive, and then quickly disappear under snow and slush.

It happens. But not today.

So I believe it's safe to say...

"It's spring fever.  
That is what the name of it is.  
And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, 
but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!" 

 ~Mark Twain


  1. Oh! I love this post so!!! You sound like you have springs like ours. Calendar only lies when it says Spring- signs are the true indication. I have yet to see color like yours though:)
    Just beautiful!

  2. Yeah! You Northerners are finally catching up! Great photos!
