And then It Hit Me

Driving through the city on my way home from work the other day after 6pm. And I realized it wasn't dark out yet.

And then I saw a tiny cherry blossom tree in the median and realized it was PINK with blossoms.

As I pulled into my neighborhood I realized the forsythia is in full Yellow Bloom. And my bulbs around my lamp post? Showing purple crocuses.

And it Hit Me. SPRING CAN'T BE FAR AWAY! Praise God.
And then a snowflake hit my windshield. I wish I made that part up. Really I do. But I didn't.

Uh? What's this "Snowflake" thing you are referring to?

We were at the beach and laying out in the sun all week.

At first I was going to be all jealous of you for the blossoms and daylight, and then you mentioned the snowflake.

Sheesh welcome to MY state! It is reverse however...snows you in so you shovel yourself out in the early morning and then the flowers are all in bloom through the melted snow by noon...then nice sunsets and then you wake up and it starts all over again lol!
