Is Spring In The Air (or the ground)?

By Lorna Barrett / Lorraine Bartlett

Daffodil_points Yesterday Mr. L and I ventured into the backyard on a quest ... for the first signs of spring.

And we found them.

Daffodil points.

I know, I know--there's officially a little over two weeks left before the first day of spring, but after this brutal winter, we're eager for spring and then SUMMER!

Summer, with hot lazy days sitting on the porch and READING for PLEASURE.

Summer, with junking forays to find treasure for a pittance.

Summer, hot dogs on the barbecue.  Potato Salad.  ICE CREAM CONES!

Summer, blue skies, falling asleep with rain on the roof and the occasional crack of lightning and thunder.  Gardening.  Flowers.  Veggies.

I'll take it.

How eager are you for spring and summer?
