Thought for the day…..

Well here we are at Wednesday – March 21st, 2012.

We are officially in springtime.

I love spring.

The smell, the sounds …..

The whole of it.

I remember when I was a little girl walking in the pasture (field) on the farm, and for as far as I could see it would be a sea of purple ….. crocuses.

They were from what I remember a furry flower, and I guess that helped them from freezing on those cold spring nights.

I truly loved seeing those flowers ….. they marked renewal for me …… a new beginning as I would imagine every spring.

I also remember that the snow would gradually melt and the smell of spring would linger in my senses for weeks.

Water would slowly run from the melting of the snow.

Sometimes on the farm there would be “dirty snow” remaining on the north side of the house until the beginning of July.

Now it seems that spring arrives ….. the temperature rises almost overnight and the snow melts …. almost overnight …

The grass is brown one day and green the next ….. trees bud, blossom and bloom……

Perhaps spring is only in my imagination and boosted a bit by the memory of a small girl.

But it is my memory and I shall treasure it forever.

I hope that you have wonderful memories to draw upon for comfort and entertainment.

Have a happy second day of spring.

Special Hello: to all those wee spring flowers carefully starting to break through the soil and the snow ….

Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin ….. ah, my Alvin….. I am so blessed….
