TERRIFIC 2's Tuesday!/  Welcome Spring and Say Goodbye to Winter

Today is the first day of Spring!  It is finally here and we say farewell to Winter.  We've waited and hoped for it and now we can enjoy it!

Spring is here!  We did it!  We cruised right into Spring and now we'll be leaving old Noah behind.  I learned some valuable lessons on the journey that I'll never forget.



Today Winter is officially over.  It’s time for some change, some kind of renewal for this spring season.  The grass is greener, the 

birds are singing, and the temperature is gradually increasing.

I am always amazed at the changes that occur right here in my yard.  Each day I see something else budding or blooming.

 

 Yesterday I saw the buds on my Star Magnolia tree beginning to open. Today it is in full bloom.  Some of the daffodils are blooming 

while others have only buds.

Longer warmer days are upon us. We have all awaited these days of renewal and growth. All of nature is renewing and so should we

That is my 2 for this Tuesday: We wave good bye to winter and celebrate the first day of Spring



Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday everyone!

With the MILD MILD winter we have had, it feels like spring sprang sooner. But with the calendar making it official... MORE sunshine and blue skies should be ahead. SPRING MOVES US FORWARD in our lives. We should EMBRACE renewal of the spirit and open ourselves to new experiences. Love the little poem. Have a BEAUTIFUL day, MA.

It was a unique trip I have been on with you. Neat for a different pace and a geat subject you had picked.
We did have a nice winter down here also and also looking more like spring, even in Florida.

It helped to stop by a grove and pick up 20 grapefruits at ten cents each. The sweet smell of the blossoms is still heavy in the air.

enjoyed the Blog always.
