Spring has Sprung (Sort Of!)

All hail the Vernal Equinox, the return of the sun, and the arrival of spring!

Yes today we start a new season, the time of growing things and new beginnings.

Of course when I went outside this morning we had snow flurries.

The only thing blooming around here is the daffodil I bought at the store last week.

My new shamrock plant took one look at the great outdoors and said "Nothing doing, call me in May."

Thanks to daylight savings time, the sunsets are later. Unfortunately for me, it means the sunrises are as well, leaving me in the dark on my way to the bus stop each morning.

OK so its about the promise of Spring.  Gaia is just getting started.  Give the girl some time.  Maybe by Easter. (What Easter is a month away, yet?)

Well at least the calender says its Spring.  For now I'll settle for that.


  1. It's coming! I remember waiting for the bus in the dark with a baby. Not fun. Hang on!

  2. This morning it was snowing. This afternoon it's supposed to be 50! There's a new bloom on my indoor, store bough daffodil, however. I'll keep hoping.
