Crocus! Posted by Picasa

Glimpses of Spring
-Gradual lengthening of daylight.
-Unpredictable spring weather.
-A hint of green in the lawns.
-Crocus blooming.
-Miscellaneous green shoots beginning to appear

(daffodils, tulips, lupine,daylilies).
-Meadowlarks practicing vocals on fence posts.
-Water in the irrigation ditch behind our house.

These first glimpses of spring always lift my spirits. I'm ready to shed my coat and come out of winter hibernation. My soul is once again in need of the warm sunshine. I'm beginning to anticipate the longer days and again working outside
---playing in the dirt. I can’t wait to hang my porch swing and plant a few pots of geraniums.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your pictures and writings are delightful! I'm so glad to 'meet' you. Spring in Colorado sounds remarkably like spring in upstate NY :)
Isn't it wonderful? Really lifts the spirits.

Whilst you and Kerri have been looking forward to Spring, we have been waiting for the Autumn (Fall). Although it does seem to have come rather suddenly and a frost was predicted for this morning. Still the days are lovely and warm - high teens/low 20ºs - but the days are sunny, generally, and we never mind when they are cloudy either. Very busy time in the garden here now - tidying, cutting back, even planting out. Wonderful. Thank the Lord for every day.
