I am So Ready for Spring

It's mud season! I love that line from Toot and Puddle's book. Perfectly approprite for this time of year. Another thing that I love about this time of year is waiting for the first hints of red in the stems of the maple trees (best seen from a distance). It really breaks up the grey and definitely means that warmer days are on the way. I am a firm believer that we would not apprecite the glory of spring with out it being preceeded by a few miserable months of wetness and cold.

Time for a change now...getting excited about all of the newness of spring.

Spring is started to appear over here in Belgium, today I saw some blossom on a plum tree in my garden, then this evening we've got snow!! I quite agree that you appreciate Spring so much more having had winter. Glad I found your blog :) Catherine
