Spring has (almost) Sprung

by Mauverneen


        “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant..."   -Anne Bradstreet

So true. We are so anxious for spring because we are tired of being cold. We want to be warm again, to see sunshine. We are tired of shades of gray - as in the sky, the trees, and the mud. 

Its encouraging to see the grass turning green again, uplifting to see the dead-looking branches on the trees showing signs of life again and how thrilled we are to see the seasons first robin or that first spring flower!
In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours. - Mark Twain
Ah but mother nature is fickle and shy. Sometimes she must be coaxed into showing off all of her charms. A little sun, a little snow, a wayward robin, a little rain... Until at last, damn it, It really will be spring! 

Every April, God rewrites the Book of Genesis. ~Author Unknown
