Yesterday was the first day of Spring. Gray whales are back, feeding on the side of our island. Trees are blooming, my weeds are back to growing. Dog and horse are shedding. Little J is going to bed a bit later. The day is longer. I am nervous about wearing short sleeves.
I think there is no going back. Even here in the Pacific NorthWest there is hope that winter is coming to an end. I for one am ready. Bring it on!
Little J’s friend C came to visit yesterday. He told me this morning: Mommy, she told me it was the first day of spring. I told her she was wrong. It was the last day of winter.
I really wanted to do this week’s prompt number 4.) Photo Story: Take a walk through your neighborhood this week and share some pictures of what Spring looks like where you live.
There is a bit of pressure because I lack two things that most bloggers who add pictures to their posts have: a keen eye for photography and a decent camera. The first I told you more about yesterday and as for the camera, it is older then my son and is mostly used by him too. In fact I will let you on a huge secret: the picture I use as Twitter avatar was in fact taken by my three year old by mistake.
But I have one huge advantage. My neighbors. It is where we spend most of our days, where our beloved Vizon is, where our friends live and where you should one day visit. These might not be the best shots, but they capture a little piece of heaven. Enjoy our spring.
All pictures were taken at Wildwood Farm, WA.
