Carpet of violets.

The lawns of Spring are often filled with a carpet of purple violet that scent the spring breeze with their perfume.

Early Spring

The apricots and other flowering  trees are in bloom,  a month earlier than last year.   We had such a warm winter this year,  with only a couple of snow storms.

Unusual Winter

This has been an unusual winter.  Only two snow storm, and temperature mostly above normal.  We are all wondering if the Spring will bring rain showers to provide water to the needed reserves?  Or will Mother Nature now hit us with Spring snows?

Mourning Song

Oh, the trills and chirps of the avian mourning song have returned.  I heard the first notes on Saturday mourning, a sure sign that Spring has returned.
