Signs of Spring

Pansey's on the back patio.
Flowews of winter.
Bird bath in back yard.

The first crocus of spring at my house :)

I cannot wait for everything to start turning green again and the new birth of spring time arrives. Spring is my favorite time of the year. I love for the birds to wake me up singing and oh the sunshine. I just love spring. It is not to hot and not to cold. I thought you might enjoy this cute little poem I found on spring. Have a Blessed Day! In Christ. Lisa
Signs Of Spring
The signs of spring are everywhere; the air is soft and warm, No longer will we hear the forecast of a winter storm. The robins running on the ground and sensing with their feet, The movement of the earthworms as they search for food to eat. The days are getting longer and the sun seems big and bright, And daylight savings time will make it seem a shorter night. The birds start singing earlier each morning before dawn, As if they also know by instinct winter now is gone. Little buds upon the trees are poking out their heads, Tiny stalks are popping up out in the flowerbeds. Treetops that were barren when the winter winds would blow, Now are filled with baby squirrels just running to and fro. The morning paper that was filled with winter sort of ads, Now is filled with grills and lawnmowers calling out to dads. Garden center parking lots for months were cold and dark, Now you must shop early if you want a place to park. So many signs that spring is coming and is finally here, The weather now is warming up at this time of year. Of all the signs that spring is here that leave me with no doubt, The orange construction barrels spring up and traffic cops are out.

I loved seeing your flowers. We have some daffodils that are up and I have some pansies, too.

Cute poem. Makes me wish for Spring, as well.
