Welcome Spring!

Today was a sunny day, a good setting for the first day of spring. 
The air was chilly as Bill and I set off for a walk 
along the edge of the lake in our town. 

Looking up, we could see buds on some trees, and the sky was a brilliant blue.

I could imagine the transformation that will soon occur, as the neutral landscape
 transforms into every possible shade of green.

In one place, a trail led to a small patch of beach, where a mom and her child sat on the cold sand.

Like all of us, I'm sure they felt the hope and expectation in the air ~
warmth, growth and pleasurable days to come.

Welcome Spring!!!

I love your new header banner...what a beautiful welcome to spring!
Looks like a very nice walk and it will be so wonderful to see the changes in the colors of the landscape as we move along to warmer weather! (we may have a set back this week for snow is predicted here)

I can just visualize how green and leafy it will soon be. I bet you tend to forget that with all of the snow!

Glad you had a good day:)

As I sit at my computer, admiring your new banner, I can hear birds singing outside my window. And I discovered some brave, creamy crocus flowers in my backyard yesterday! Despite the wintry weather Spring IS here! Thanks always, Judy, for your support and comments on my blog.

We drove down from Vermont yesterday in a nasty snow storm...but I know spring is winning...the days are longer and the scent of spring is in the air!

I love your new spring banner Judy! Welcome spring indeed! In the UK our clocks go forward an hour on Sunday and then it will officially be British Summer Time! x
