welcome, Spring

On this the first day of spring, we celebrate

the first blooming daffodil,

the first dandelions,

the leaf buds springing from the maple,

new life, so green and sunny, budding, blooming, giving us fresh perspective.

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush
afire with God.
~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Thank you, God, for this glorious spring.


  1. I love how you all are just a wee bit south of us and it's like a preview of what we will get in a week or two. Enjoy!

  2. A lovely post to welcome spring. :)

  3. I see the snow has melted and your landscape is alive with spring! Yellow is my favorite color these days, we have been looking for dandelions there is just something cheery about them : )

    Happy Spring Joy!

  4. How beautiful! I can't wait to get home and see it!

  5. Hi Joy! Love the photos. Glad to see Spring is covering your landscape in such beauty. Enjoy!

  6. And I was getting excited about seeing our tiny little tulip buds popping through the ground! Thank you for the preview of what we will see in a month or so. Beautiful and I can't wait!!!


I love to hear what you think!
