Spring Teaser

We've had more cold weather than we're used to in Georgia this winter. And it's been much wetter. Unfortunately the cold and wet don't come at the same time, so I haven't seen snow. After being dry as a bone for years, I felt sure I'd never complain again about too much rain. The muddy spots all around our house have changed my mind on that. And by the way, why is it that whenever I walk outside with Crocs on, I step right into a muddy sinkhole?

Back to the topic - all about our muddy front yard, daffodils are coming up. And I'd been too busy to notice. The picture above is the first one to bloom. After looking it over and becoming completely excited and delirious with the prelude to Spring Fever, I noticed that there are a bunch more all promising to bloom before too long. Naturalized! In my front yard! Making a sneak appearance in January! Woo-hoo!

I love Spring. I don't care that Georgia turns yellow from pollen. Winter is like the beginning of the Wizard of Oz where the movie is in black and white. Spring is in living color - where Dorothy meets the munchkins and Glenda the Good Witch. And in Georgia, all the roads turn yellow.
