delightful Spring

What a joy it is to observe the earth bursting with color!  I've been spending a lot of time in North Carolina lately taking my new granddaughter on walks.  Bird song fills the air as we cruise the neighborhoods.  Every day bring new discoveries.

What Springtime delights have you been particularly taken with this year?

relishing the sights, sounds, and smells of lovely Spring as the earth renews itself...

Oh what a glorious deep blue sky!

Spring is here - what does that mean to you?   Share.


I've been been so blessed to spend loads of time with my beautiful new granddaughter, born in November.  This has meant lots of travel for me since she lives about 6 hours away by car.  As I drive south and through the mountains I've noticed the gradual greening of trees and the the gorgeous redbuds flirtatiously decorating the roadsides.  As I push her stroller up and down the hills of her neighborhood, I've been privy to the unfolding parade of glorious flowers and budding trees.  All the while, birds chip merrily, going about their birdie business.  Squirrels scamper.  Bees buzz.  She is particularly taken with azaleas--capacious, riotous, pink.
