Ready For Spring
This winter has been fairly mild for the most part. I’ve even been able to ride the motorcycle to work for a lot of the winter. I’m able to ride pretty much any time it is dry and above freezing. I can handle rain, but not a really cold rain. It has to be at least in the 70’s for me to tolerate rain.
Anyway, I’m already digressing from the point of this post. You may be asking yourself, what is that picture?? If you remember, I posted a similar photo a little while back of some seeds sprouting. Here are a few more sprouting. There are actually a lot more than that now, but this is the most recent photo I have with me at the moment.
Although the winter has been mild, I’m ready for warm weather. I’m ready to work outside in a garden. I’m ready to mow the yard. (It actually needs it already in parts of it!) I’m ready to get out in the hot sun and start cutting firewood for next winter. Yes, I am that ready. I’m even ready for those annoying stinging flying bugs. If only it will mean warm weather is here.
There are a few signs that it is getting close, however. We have some daffodils and tulips that are growing. A lot of the daffodils will actually bloom just any time. Also, there are some bradford pear trees near the office building where I work. Those all have tons if tiny little buds on them. Spring is close!
