Today is the first day of Spring! Alleluia! However, someone forgot to give Mother Nature the memo. Coming home from work this was the temp outside my car:
Looking out the front door, this was my scenery:
It was snowing fast and furious and the cold air was blowing fiercely! Even with that evidence that Winter weather was going to hang on for a bit, the signs of Spring are still around the Pines. Signs like these:
Crocus that come up even through snow.
Daffodils that are just ready to burst.
Lilac bushes with tiny buds.
Sedum that is fresh and green.
Azaleas showing off some color before blooming.
Beautiful, sweet, yummy strawberries picked fresh today....NOT! They're from Florida and my coworker Shay had bought them from another coworker's kiddo who was selling them as a fund raiser. I didn't know about it, or I would have bought some too! So pretty and they do look like Spring to me!
Even with all the signs pointing to a seasonal change, these dead leaves hang on until new ones can replace them. The wind is blowing and the snow is falling but I do know that Winter has played out for a bit.
