Spring?

It’s been a long and cold winter.  I know, all you people in North Dakota can’t sympathize, but to us transplanted “Floridians”, it’s been a long winter :)

There are signs that Spring is coming, but the temperature doesn’t reflect it. 

It is only 37 degrees now and should only get into the 50’s today.  It’s been windy, so that 50 is cold!

Our Daffodils are up and some even have buds on them.  We should see some blooms pretty soon.

One of the things I look forward to here in Georgia is the Pink Magnolia.  It’s one of the first things to bloom.  There is one in front of the hospital. It’s a huge tree and when in full bloom it is gorgeous. 

Here is a picture of it now.  It’s starting to bloom but is far from being in full bloom.  We’ve been watching it…don’t want to miss all it’s glory!

Another of the early bloomers are the flowering Cherry tree.  This is one in full bloom.  Pretty, isn’t it?

These are just a preview of things to come.  Georgia is beautiful in the spring!

Oh, so pretty! Thanks for posting! Brightens up my day!

Here we still have snow - although much of it has melted - the field behind us and our ten acres is covered yet - quite windy today - it's to get up to the high 30's the next couple of days - whoooie!

Yep, that looks like spring to me. Yeah! Finally!

Connie, you need to move south.

Cold is Cold, no matter what state you live in. You folks down in the south have certainly had your share of frozen, snowy unusual weather. Hopefully, spring will be just around the corner for you.

Enjoy the day.

It's tempting, isn't it?
