Spring has officially sprung. Winter is over - so they say. We'll just see.

It's also Palm Sunday. The day Christians celebrate the entrance of Jesus into the city of Jerusalem. The beginning of Holy Week. I wish I could go to church this morning....I always did enjoy Palm Sunday services. But - I gotta work.

Spring has never been my favorite season - well, let me rephrase that. It was never my favorite season before I moved to Florida. In Florida the weather is almost PERFECT during Spring. Mid 70's in the day, 50's at night. Oh, there is some rain, but usually it's just blue sky and sunshine.

Up north? Yeah, well let me just say they are expecting snow in the NorthEast today. Ugh. And the rain, the mud. You know the saying....April Showers bring May Flowers. Well, the last few years I lived up there it was still SNOWING in April. Spring? Yeah Right.

And cabin fever. Big Time. Heck, with the winter we've had down here I've got a strong case of it. I have had a couple of Sunday afternoons that I could sit out in the sun and just soak it all up. The warmth in my bones. The tingle on my skin. I love the sun.

The good thing is I can start getting tulips for my house. I never liked tulips much until a couple of years ago. I found the most beautiful purple tulips, they are only available once a year and for a short time, but I fill every vase I have with them. Just add a shot of vodka in with the water and they stand up nice and straight and last a very long time. (hmm....strange, wish vodka had the response in more than just tulips) ;-)

So Happy Spring. It's a time for new beginnings, a time of rebirth. I'm looking forward to it.

There are only 4 good months up north:

May, June, September, and October.

May is my favorite. The weather's warming up, and the bugs aren't out yet.

I love spring, it truely is a time of rebirth.

I went around this weekend running from bush to bush and plant to plant look at and pointing out all the little buds on everything. It's so exiciting seeing things come to life.

Our Bradford Pear in front of the house is just full of little flower buds and I can't wait for it to bloom, it's beautiful in full bloom.
