Spring is my favorite time of the year. I’m not a big winter fan, I hate to be cold and the leafless stick-trees and gray skies just don’t speak to my soul.
Oh don’t get me wrong, I love tucking inside with the fireplace blazing with wood we’ve cut and split ourselves, sipping on hot tea and snuggled on the couch under a fuzzy blanket with my RancherMan. But the season itself makes me long for the green beauty and vibrant colors of spring.
After a long cold season of looking at bleak skies I’m thrilled to see the first splashes of color. I love the cheery yellow blooms of the daffodils my mom shared with me years ago. They’re planted alongside our driveway and greet me each time I return home.
And what better sight to see than those beautiful blooms on my wild plum tree? The last 2 years drought wiped out about 99% of them so I’m thrilled to see this sight. My mind is already churning with visions of making wild-plum jelly again this year!
And of course the splash of spring color wouldn’t be complete without this little guy…
To me, spring is a colorful season of renewal, filled with new promises for a fresh start. LOVE IT!
