The calendar says its spring. Usually Easter signifies it's spring. I know I'm ready for spring.
This was taken on Easter. Doesn't look like spring much to me, does it you?
My family took a ride to the mountains to see how close we could get to our cabin. We never get in until Mother's Day or later, so even though there's still snow on the ground, it was wonderful for us to get to our gate. This time of year we're always anxious to get on the mountain and to enjoy our cabin. We always look forward to seeing the animals and hummingbirds. So, even though there's still snow, it was a gorgeous spring day in the mountains (about 7500 feet in elevation).
We had a great ride and a very nice day and as you can see, my husband drove out of the canyon with a smile on his face.
I need to tell you, that a few miles down the road the snow was totally melted and we were able to see deer grazing on the hillside and some fish jumping in the creek that runs alongside the road.
Once we drove out of the snow and got back to our house, my daffodils were starting to bloom, the hyacinths were starting to grow, and they are definitely a sign telling me spring is here. I love it!
We, in the west, are lucky because we have different seasons, and they each offer us so much. Spring is the beginning of life as calves are born, colts arrive, flowers spring up with their beautiful colors, and the rains help everything turn green and lush after the long cold, snowy days of winter. I guess it's alot like life. Each of our seasons bring us something to look forward to, and so does the various seasons.
Take time to look around you and enjoy this marvelous time of year. Push the dark moods away and embrace the new bright days. Let them inspire you to create something new, reach out to another person, finish something you started, or just get out and find something to smile about.
