It Really is Here!!

spring

 

According to the calendar, we are a full week into spring.  When most people think of spring, images of bright green grass, blooming flowers, short-sleeved shirts and open-toed shoes come to mind. Well, at least those are the things that come to my mind.  While the sun has decided to show itself more and more this past week, the temps have remained cool, even in North Carolina as my dear uncle told me the other night.   I am wondering when the real spring weather will arrive.  I still do not have an answer to that, but I do have a strong indication that it’s on its way sooooon.

This morning, when I woke up and got out of bed, I smelled spring.  In our house.  Okay, it was actually the hyacinths that I bought for our moms for Easter that were blooming in the foyer, but the lovely scent  immediately woke me up and put a smile on my face.  While I love the smell of most flowers, certain ones make my allergies go nuts.  Guess what? Blooming hyacinths are one of them. Yep. Just found that out this morning.  After sneezing five to six times, I decided that I had better take them outside.  When I placed them on our stoop, I heard the most wonderful sound – birds chirping!  I started to get excited.  Spring really is here.  The sun is out.  Flowers are blooming (at least in our house) and the birds are singing songs.   Now, if the temperatures would rise up (literally) and join the party, things would really be good…

Happy Spring!
