Spring Came

Today’s theme for Six Word Friday is “spring”, an appropriate word considering the flowers in bloom that I showed you recently.  However, there is one other sign that spring is coming – and I am right another year – haven’t missed one yet – YES! –

spring comes with snow shivering robins

A few weeks ago, I wrote that I didn’t think it would happen this year.  The day after my walk at the botanical gardens, we woke up to 4″ of snow.  It melted by mid-day, but my favorite boy toy got me a picture of a robin in snow using his iPhone.

I took this one with my own iPhone before I went to work.  Unfortunately there are no robins in the picture.

    • I’ve really enjoyed your blogs about spring and what’s happening in your backyard. We’ve been in the upper 70’s some days and I agree, it feels more like summer than spring.

  1. I am learning to be more observant. With the advent of adding pictures to online content, I have been experimenting with photos and creating in paint…. :) Angie

    • Wow, you are really stretching yourself creatively. Good for you! With practice, I became much more observant. My diaries helped a lot with that. It was not a natural skill.

    • That’s a great comment. What’s good about the notebook is that not only does it give you ideas for blogging, but it also records the little things that you’ll have forgotten ten years from now.

  2. Ahhh Spring! With our June like temps this past few days, I am afraid that we may be in for more cold weather too. The biggest snow I have experienced in the region was in March – 18″! But today is beautiful and will just enjoy it – hope your day is just as beautiful! Kathleen

    • Thanks Kathleen! If I was still living in the Midwest, I’d be dreading an Easter snow. Warm winters always seem to bring one last blow out blizzard.
