This Week...Spring Is Here...Finally!


While it’s not exactly balmy in most of the States unless you’re in South Florida, spring arrives today, March 20. 


Spring: a lovely reminder of how beautiful change can truly be.


Houston has had cool (cold by my standards) and breezy mornings that warmed up to but not quite 70 degrees. 


The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring.

Bernard Williams


But the trees and birds don’t mind that it’s a bit cooler. We checked 5 of our boxes out at Kickerillo and so far we have 5 eggs in one nest and nests-in-progress in 3 others!  


Spring won’t let me stay in this house any longer! I must get out and breathe the air deeply again.

 Gustav Mahler


Despite our recent snow and hard freeze, many of the trees look like they’re thumbing their noses (or limbs) at it and producing buds, flowers and leaves. 


Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul.

Luther Burbank


Whatever you do, wherever you are...enjoy your first day of Spring!

Happy first day of Spring! We had a 60 degree day a few days ago which was positively delightful. I think today is going to be near 50. I'll take it!

It felt like Spring here yesterday, it was in the mid to high 80's and that makes me happy!  I definitely prefer the heat to the cold.

Lovely quotes, we do have signs of spring, although we are still chilly.  I like this Robin Williams quote on Spring, 'Spring is nature's way of saying, Let's party!'   Happy Saturday! A

Good morning Kathy-Spring has sprung in Arizona.  Have seen lots of blooms when I have been out and about.  Nice week of mid 60's and then the heat starts to set in then goodbye Arizona.  Love your pictures and the quotes.  Happy Saturday

Happy Spring to you, Kathy. I'm appreciative of your lovely post. We have trees blooming at the lower elevations right now and it's looking very promising around these parts. Warmer weather is on the way.

Hello Kathy - I like your observation of nests-in-progress.  That seems to be an ideal description for this first day of a new season.

There is something so hopeful about the ushuring in of spring this year.  I looked out my window and the sun is out.  I'm actually planning a little get-to-gether with family for the first time in quite some time.  There will be 5 of us.  4 of us are totally vaccinated!

Hi Kathy,

After the cool weather we have had, 70º feels pretty warm!   I am glad spring is thumbing its nose to winter in Houston.  I still have to do a post.

Kathy our temperatures are suppose to be in the mid to upper 60's next week, so I am starting to feel like Spring is around the corner.

We were out and about yesterday and today, loving this spring weather, Kathy! I'm crazy about spring and love seeing the first leaves peaking out on the tree branches. I took this yesterday near our house...
