Spring In Colors
March 21, 2012 § 1 Comment
It has been so warm outside that I had to fish out my shorts and summer skirts from the storage bins in my barn. I normally do this after Mother’s Day when I finally pack away the winter boots, parkas and mittens.
So warm that I have been drying my bed sheets outside in the sun. So warm that yesterday I played catch just before sunset on wet and muddy grounds with my son. So warm that I have been driving with all the windows down and have been tempted to set up the deck furniture to eat outside.
But wait, I normally do this when it’s close to summer! Something doesn’t feel right.
Yes something doesn’t feel right when all this is happening and there are no colors in the landscape.
The trees are still bare, shrubs look burned, no tender greens there, no dafodills, forsythias, blue jays or cardinals yet and the grass is like straw.
It has been so warm that I wish for true signs of spring now.
I found this at DesignSquish a blog that I look at frequently and love.
I drooled over these in Paris recently…
And I knew when I took this picture of the field behind our house last May, that it would remind me of spring one day…
Merci encore pour tant de poetics moments!
