What to Love About Spring

Standard

I saw my first bumblebee of 2014 this morning.

I will try to avoid writing at length about the atypically cold and severe weather we experienced this past winter because it’s not only pointless, I want it to be a distant memory. I won’t mention that only 10 days ago it snowed.

Did I say that?

Here’s what I love about spring:

sunsets. sure, you can see them in winter; but you can't stand and look at them for too long in the winter. it's COLD! and usually at sunset time, you're fixing to leave for home or you've just had lunch.

kids getting out! marauding youth. these kids hadn't been on a mob board run in months.

daffodils, tulips, bulbs -- of all variety, forcing their way  through dead oak leaves: spearing a hole in the leave and pushing through anyway. if they can do this year after year after year ... after sleeping for months, what's to stop us from making our way too? channel your inner daffodil: LIVE!

I adore winter. It lets us rest and gear up for spring. I’m so glad winter is over and that spring is finally here.

 

Thank you.

  1. You are one hell of a photographer Molly. Spring here in Lala land has been hot recently but I don’t mind since the beach is 45 minutes away. Get out here sometime and go to Disneyland. I’m sure it would be a relief from D.C.

Whatcha Think, Smahtypants?
