It's Spring! It's Spring! It's.... still snowing?
Here in Michigan, the calendar might say that it's the first day of Spring. But the view out of the window is much more bleak.
I don't know about you, but I've had the worst case of Spring fever this year. I'm burning up with the desire to see my tulips shoot up from the earth and bloom. I'm sick with wanting blue skies and puffy white clouds. I yearn for warm evenings that invite walks around the neighborhood after dinner. I want to smell the grass after it's been cut and the dirt as I plant my garden.
Of course, I'll be halfway through Spring and looking forward to summer's delights. Ice cream cones. Grilling outside. Sitting on our covered porch in the evenings with the crickets and katydids providing the soundtrack.
And then by the end of the July, I'll be wishing for turning leaves. Cooler nights. And trick or treaters begging for candy.
November brings a longing for the first snow. For sweaters and hot chocolate. For the tinkle of bells and songs of carolers.
For now, I'll stick to wishing for daffodils. Happy Spring!
What's your favorite part of Spring? What do you look forward to most?
