It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is.
And when you've got it, you want
-oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want,
but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
Sign of Spring #1: I bought several of these little planters when I was in Japan last month. The dish is about 3"x3"; the ceramic "bead" is 1.5". I thought they were unique and bonsai-like. Some of the designs were so very Japanese too. My sister cut a branch from one of my cherry blossom trees and I am pleased to announce that it is blooming!
Sign of Spring #2: These snow drops appear in my garden every year. Brave little devils, just last week they were encased to their beautiful white blooms in snow. They are unwavering though...setting a good example for those of us who are eagerly awaiting warmer weather to just be patient a little bit longer.
Sign of Spring #3: Darling little bird outside my kitchen window this morning. This is a red breasted nut hatch. He looks like he might be a regular at our bird feeder- sort of plump and at peace with the current cool season.
Keep the faith, Girlfriends...Spring is coming and it will be here before ya know it!
