Has Spring Arrived Where You Are?

Spring has sprung,
The grass has riz.
Wonder where
The flowers is?

Spring season brings us the beauty of new things to brush away the monochromatic winter scenery. And the flowers? They’re right around the corner. My favorite azalea bush in my backyard is sporting tiny, tiny buds and a little red bloom or two. You must look really close at the photo to the right, but they're there. Of course dandelions are scattered across the lawn; yellow is a favorite flower color of mine but the lawn mower gets them along with the other weeds.

Spring is one of my favorite seasons—not too cold for comfort and not too hot to have to stay inside. Where does the temperature stay in the 80s year-round? That would be ideal.

What’s your favorite season? Have your flowers shown themselves already?

Let’s look forward to the beauty of spring; to all the beauty around us. Let’s don’t take any good thing for granted but instead appreciate it.

            Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind.”    —Ashley Smith, American author and speaker

            What’s your favorite season? Which little things do you appreciate in life?

Till next time … keep on smiling.
