Dreaming of Spring

Good mooring. How is your week so far? Mine has been great, except for the weather, its been rainy, foggy and cold. I hate to complain because the winter has been for the most part pretty mild but the beautiful, sunny 65 degree weekend has my mind on Spring. 

I spent several hours walking this weekend; it was so nice to feel the sun on my face the gentle breeze blowing my hair. The signs of Spring are not really in evidence although I did see a few robins does that count?

My mind is on Easter, tulips, Spring break, gardens, bunnies, new life, lambs and more. Here are a few of my favorite pins from Pinterest.

Are you dreaming of Spring or is your mind still firmly planted in Winter? Just curious, do you have a favorite spring flower? I love tulips and cherry blossoms, and lilacs.

I hope that you have a beautiful day! Stay warm and safe in the next storm system.
