Hope Springs Eternal!

This week I went looking for Spring.
What I found delighted me.
There were signs.
Some signs I had to look close to the ground, move a few leaves.
There waiting to be discovered was green.
Tulips, daffodils, and camillas swelling with new life.
And the primroses were beginning to bloom.
It seems rather early, but I am not complaining.
The first signs of Spring always bring me giggles of JOY.
I do BELIEVE I will survive Winter,
in fact I am doing more than survive this year,
I am actually learning to kind of like it.
But seeing the signs of Spring give me HOPE for the color to return.

I think we all count the weeks to Spring! The bulbs have been emerging from the ground for the last 2 weeks...Can't wait!

Oh my, what treasures you've spotted! I still had snow on my roof here in Georgia last night! But maybe I need to walk around and move a few leaves aside and see what's underneath. This post gives ME hope too! Thanks!

I noticed the signs yesterday as I roamed about the yard! It is so much fun to see the tiny buds and know that it is happening!!

Your blog is my first view of spring and it was just Joyful! Bring it on!!

Adrienne said...

Yes, Spring is on it's way, my friend. You will make it and be filled with JOY. I BELIEVE it! I brought a touch of Spring home with me today - it's in my kitchen window waiting for me to enjoy - and share soon.

I miss having my own yard. But when I go out next time, I will look for those beginning signs of spring. They warm my heart as well!

Jeanie said...

Oh, my! How I long to see such signs! Of course, here we look forward to melting -- at least those of us who don't love the snow for skiing! We'll see this -- MAYBE March, probably April.

I too am waiting for spring Marilyn, but a long ways off I feel from signs. It's snowing like crazy right now, and underneath the ground is ice. I'll look at your pictures and dream!!

Oooh, oooh, I LOVE this! So early!

Sigh. Oh to live on the west side. I choose to BELIEVE that the east side will see signs of spring soon.

Beautiful montage! Hope.

Oh, this post is a sight for my winter-sore eyes, Marilyn! No signs of spring yet here--all is buried under snow and will be for many weeks yet. I may have to stop at the florist this weekend for a treat of flowers--I miss them! :o) Happy Weekend ((HUGS)) Oh, stop by my place, if you can, during the weekend–I’m having a fun Valentine Giveaway!
