That is one good thing about this world…there are always sure to be more springs.

L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

It’s here. Beautiful, beautiful, full-of-promise spring.

Time for garden planning, seed sowing, dirt digging, and down-on-the-ground picture-taking.

The season of window opening, sunshine warming, and fresh air blowing has finally arrived.

It’s spring.

The fever has taken hold.

Let the games begin.

Simple happy.

Tulip stems.

A gift of sunny yellow daffodils.

A date night, Hoye style. (We attended a lecture.)


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Like you, I love spring! I took my first foray into my small garden yesterday, and what did I see, alongside the tulips and daffodils—weeds, and lots of them! So it’s outside again for me today, and I hope to keep it up until they (the weeds) are all gone!

    1. Sounds like a perfect way to spend the first day of spring. Enjoy!

  2. We’re due for snow tonight and tomorrow. But still, yes, it’s here and the snow will be gone in a heart beat!

    1. Once the melt finally started that white stuff started disappearing fast. Hope it’s the same for you, Joan. And soon.

  3. Let the games begin! Yes! I wish we were closer to spring – and why are you closer than ND, hmm? We still have piles of snow, though they are melting a bit. We had a wee bit more snow today and more forecast for Friday. I wish we had flowers for Easter, but that doesn’t happen here. 🙁

  4. Our snow is disappearing fast. We have only a bit left in our north yard. We stopped by the community garden today and there is spinach in many plots (that get more sun than mine) that will soon be ready to harvest a little salad from. Hope it springs soon for you too, Karen. Once March comes we have all had enough winter.
