A Touch Of Spring ~

Well as you all know if you have been following my blog over this winter, we have had one hard, cold, brutal winter. It gets cold & snowy here in Michigan but this year was the absolute worst. Yes I'm still going to say that winter is still my favorite season but Mother Nature sure was letting us know exactly what winter was all about! We were hovering in zero temps for weeks that would not let up. We had snow storms after snow storms that were one big snow storm. You lose count after the 5Th one when it's only January. When we got back into the 30's again, us Michiganders felt comfortable to leave our homes again after being stuck in the house for weeks. Our weather has been in the normal 30 degree range lately which is nice. But we did get 4 to 5 inches of snow last weekend. Then even some days it even got into the 40's and we just thought we were having a heatwave! Whew hoo! It even peeked into the 50's a couple of times and that is all it took to melt most of our snow.
But lately =) ........there has been a change here on Peek-A-Boo Street. Maybe there is brighter days to come.
Are those!...Yep!.....We're getting buds on our trees here on Peek-A-Boo Street. Buds mean...*Spring!* Ahhh yes. Oh how sweet that is to see. Especially after such a harsh winter.
Of course I had to grab for my camera and take a couple of pic's for you.
I forgot what it's like to have warm sunshine on my face. The sky was blue here for now. Later in the night the rain came. But at least it wasn't snow! Rain is a sign of spring to come. And yes I have seen two Robins yesterday. But I know not to speak to soon. It has been known to snow here in April. So don't let these pic's fool you. But it's nice to dream of spring to come.........

  2. Glad to hear that it is warming up some for you guys up north. Here in central Alabama it has been like spring. Some of my azaleas are starting to bud out, but we sometimes have a hard freeze in March and it gets all the flowers that are budding out. We are expecting bad weather here today they say we may get 3 inches of rain. Rain is ok but I hope we do not have tornadoes. Have a blessed day.

  3. Sorry I have been quiet for so long, I have had trouble posting comments and uploading pictures and video, think it might be our server.

    Now that you are all moving towards spring - we are starting to go into autumn. Our early mornings and evenings are getting a little chilly. But I am ever so grateful that we don't get the snow storms you do, although it looks so pretty!
