VERNAL EQUINOX




For lo, the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth,
the time of singing has come
and the voice of the turtledove
is heard in our land.
The fig tree puts forth its figs,
and the vines are in blossom;
they give forth fragrance.
Arise my love, my fair one,
and come away. 

~ The Song of Solomon, 2:11-13

We are about done with this winter here, however, snow is predicted for next week!

My favorite bible verse! And with spring slowly starting, there's much to be grateful for!

Didn't I tell you my dogwood tree is blooming profusely?

...well, it's probably because I just made it up.

But oh, Joey, I am ready to escape the winter doldrums and fall right into your beautiful spring image - face first!

Hoping for this winter to finally be past. Could use a good dose of Spring. Hope all is well with you.

Have been such a 'Bad Blogger' but hoping to improve. Thank you dear Eileen, Robin, Marysol and Lindalou ... and Happy Spring! Today the Tigers won on opening day and the weather has definitely improved enough to say it finally feels like 'Spring has Sprung'!
