Can Spring Be Far Behind...


It's only in the 40s today, but I am so eager for spring that I'm sharing a picture I took several years ago at our local community garden. The garden is only a few blocks from my building, and it's a beautiful oasis in the middle of the city. I'll walk over there in a few weeks and takes photos of this year's flowers. I'm not a gardener, but I am so grateful for all that my neighbors do to transform our neighborhood.

Our big project launches Monday morning. I'm taking today to catch up on errands -- desperate for a haircut -- and I'm back at the office tomorrow. By Monday afternoon I hope the biggest part of our work will be over and I can really start to relax. I definitely need a trip to Pink Saturday! Please join me and visit some of the sweetest places in BlogLand.

Wishes to all for a pink Saturday and a bright and blessed weekend!

P.S. April 1 starts the A to Z Blogging Challenge!

I know you must be excited about the completion of your project and hope all goes well for you. The blooms will be appreciated when they finally arrive. I've been looking a lot of my pictures from last Spring just to hold me over till they come again too. Have a super Saturday!

It definitely looks like spring your way, but not here yet. The flowers are beautiful! Happy Easter, my friend!

Beautiful picture! I am ready for Spring :) The tulips here are just barely popping up from the ground - I will have to cover them so that the deer don't eat them :)
Have a blessed Easter!

Hugs,

Cool challenge for you on the A to Z. Do you have some ideas and pics already or will you have to get them each day? Our spring comes and goes during the week. Our temps will range from highs of 48 to 68 on different days. It's crazy.
You launch your big project on the same day of a new blog challenge. Is that a little pressure?
