From Winter Brings the Spring Again


  Can you believe I woke up to more snow this morning?!  My kids were hoping for another snow day or at least a 2 hour delay, but classes started right on time!  I appreciate living in a state where I get to experience each season's change, Winter weather just makes me more anxious for Spring. 

I'm looking forward to watching the hummingbirds.
The return of the Hickory Horned Devil Caterpillar.
Butterflies.
Raindrops and roses.
I love watching the color palette while the sun sets.
The large, showy Hibiscus blooms.
If you spend enough time outdoors, eventually you will come upon a bird's nest.
The welcome signs that Spring will soon arrive...

  11. Spring is a beautiful time. We don't really have such distinct seasons here in Brisbane. For example definitely no snow in winter, and you can often still wear a tshirt. It must be nice to enjoy the contrasts, and appreciate each season for it's uniqueness.

  14. Hey Brandi!

    I am all about Spring right now. If we keep looking at photos like that it will be here before we know it! Well, I could have done without that creepy looking caterpillar but the rest were beautiful lol.

  15. We've got spring weather already. I think that all of us here in California are almost feeling guilty about it because the rest of the country has had such a hard winter.
    I've never, ever seen a caterpillar like that before. Your spring views are beautiful!

    I still haven't done my stylish blogger post, but thank you so much for the award. I've been busy with school, and have got to think of 7 things to write :-) Thanks again!
    Blessings,
    Marcia
