Did I mention....

that I am
 oh so
 ready for spring?

That I am completely 
tired of snow...

that it is supposed to 
snow here in the next few days?

I want daffodils,
and tulips,
and crocus,
red-bud trees,
and azaleas,
warm weather.

I want to 
sit on the beach with 
sand in my shoes...

I am a 
Carolina Girl at heart...
when March comes around...
my thoughts stray
to the 
Carolina shore.

Some twenty years ago,
I was in a wedding,
as a bridesmaid,
on an island just south of Charleston, SC
the first weekend in March.
The weather was unseasonably warm,
in the 80's....
and we watched porpoises
just off the shore...
It was a magical weekend.
Live Oaks and Spanish Moss...

I am so ready for spring...

  5. HUGE audible intake of breath! This is one of the finest photos of a flower in its natural habitat that I've ever seen. Gorgeous.

    Psst...do you have more? Maybe I should feature you twice during the year: bridal and non-bridal. We'd have to space them apart by several months.

  6. Yours is the second post in my reader this morning to feature a picture of tulips. I'm ready for spring too.

  7. Thank you all! big smiles.

  8. That photo is absolutely astonishing. Saw you on PJ's blog and I thought I'd stop by!
