I am thankful for Spring. No matter how brutal your winter has been, eventually Spring arrives. All the trees are asleep, but then one day they begin wake up and come to life.
As I was driving yesterday I held my camera out the window and just snapped it hoping I would get a good shot and I managed to get 2! So many of the streets in our city are lined with trees full of blossoms this time of year. It is so beautiful! Click on the picture for an even closer look.
Little violets pop up everywhere.
The grape hyacinth poke up through the brown earth.
And the forsythia celebrates the glory of spring. When forsythia has been left to grow in a natural shape and not pruned, the branches just go every which way and I always think it looks like they are shouting "Whoopee, it's Spring!"
For those of you who are still waiting for Spring, the wonderful thing about it is it always comes and one day you look out the window and there it is. Spring is filled with hope and life and we can never get enough of that.
I hope today that your day is filled with hope and life even if you are still experiencing the last blast of winter.
