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. 

Song of Solomon 2:10-12

Actually the cold weather has returned, and the gloves I carefully tucked into their summer resting place may have to reemerge tomorrow morning. It was definitely wool weather today.  But trees and flowers are blooming and quickly -- a few days of cold weather excepted -- spring is rushing towards us in full force and voice of the turtledove is soon to be heard everywhere, especially in my heart. 

Blessings and good wishes for a beautiful Saturday!

It is the same here with the cold weather. There are signs that spring is coming. But it is cold out. Have a wonderful Saturday!

Windy today in Georgia. I wonder if we are supposed to be learning some lesson about patience here. You know what I mean?

Have a good day.

Cold weather returned here as well - we needed winter jackets & mitts again. Hopefully it's warming up again soon!

Spring needs a few running starts to really get going. But you are right, soon it will be there in earnest. I bet it's a very pretty time of year there.

A cool spell here in MN as well. Suppose to warm up to the 60's come Monday and Tuesday. Then more yard work for sure.

Hi Sweetie...
I pray you are doing well. Cold there? Well come on out for visit. Today was our AZ Blogger luncheon or I would have been out poolside. Still to cool to swim, but definitely hot enough to get a tan. The warmth of the sun feels so wonderful on my face and legs. I love it.

We are counting down. Less than 3 weeks. I can hardly wait I am so excited. Is it real? Ya think?

I will talk to you soon. I posted my pics tonight of the AZ Blogger luncheon. It was fun.

Country hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry
