Amazing Transformation!

I don't think I have ever seen the trees bud and blossom as quickly as they have this year. It seems like we have almost literally gone from winter to a very warm and green spring over night. The picture at the left was just taken on March 28th. On that day, Alicia and Caeden donned their snow pants, boots, scarves, heavy coats and mittens to go outside and play.

And here they are today playing outside in shorts less than a month later! The birds are singing. I've seen some babies too. The trees are getting green. The grass is lush. Flowers are beginning to bloom. Best of all, the temperatures are warm warm warm!!!!! I love it! Sherman even went swimming in a pond today. It reminds me of that Bible verse that says "Weeping shall endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Something like that anyway! Not that I was weeping during winter because I do enjoy it. It has it's own special beauty. (Especially when I am looking at it through a picture window holding a hot cup of coffee)
Anyway, I thought I'd share this amazing transformation!

(Especially when I am looking at it through a picture window holding a hot cup of coffee) That made me smile.

The transformation has been incredible this year! It's just a wee bit strange. Not that I mind or anything. I'm loving it, aside from the fact that it makes me want an immaculate house.

WOW, when I first saw the picture I thought "Oh NO, not snow AGAIN!" Glad to hear it's just an old photo. :D
I love spring, too! I can't wait to get home and ride in the warm weather...

I agree...it has been an amazing spring so far(more like summer). We are enjoying it very much! I think Koty is going to LOVE the water. Yesterday Dave had him on the upper deck with him while he drained some of the water off the pool cover, and Koty walked right off the deck onto the cover.

He and Sherman need to get together for a play date!

It does change fast it seems. One day no leaves on the trees and the next day, there they are!

Your yard looks extra lovely! Everything is "greening" up.

That is amazing! Our Spring just started- it is not lush or green yet.

Now you need to trade the "Snug Little House" picture for a spring photo.

Priscilla said...

Yes...I though of that already, Martha.

I am afraid to look here. I just so much do NOT want to see snow!

Yay! I'm so glad that you guys are out of the winter cold now. I don't feel so guilty looking at my flowers in bloom...
