Spring is a Tease

After many cloudy days...
With numerous snowfalls...
And forever feeling chilled to the bone...
Hope has emerged these last few days.

The skies have blazed a brilliant blue...
The ground underfoot has again become a familiar green...
And the continuing need to protect against the cold no longer exists...
As the smell of spring has playfully teased me.

The cold grey skies will probably return...
Falling snowflakes may pay a visit again...
And my winter garb will remain close at hand for now...

But I do not care.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my weekend of spring...even if it only was a tease.
Did you enjoy yours?

We've had a few great days. It was 50 degrees on Saturday! It was a nice break from what is projected to start tomorrow for the rest of the week. One way or the other, Spring is in the air!

It was a warm weekend, up till Sunday night - then it got colder as we wait for the winter storms!

Nice reminders of spring; lovely green.

We've had rain and fog the last day and a half and the snow is melting. Hooray! But as you said, the cold weather gear will stay nearby. For us, we'll need it until April at a minimum.

No spring around here yet...but we did have sunshine today and that is enough to make me smile (but I hear the weathermen saying a storm is brewing for thursday eve)

At least you were teased....spring hasn't even winked at me yet!

Well I think you saw the picture on my Sunday post showing the snow we were spring hasn't teased us just yet. I am enjoying the longer days though. I noticed it was still light out going on 6:00 tonight...that's a good sign to me!

We had that same weekend of wonderful weather here in Georgia.

Now we are preparing for another cold wave.

Your photo's were beautiful.

Glad you're having fun in Lakewood.

We have had a milder winter so I can't complain but still I look forward to spring!
Thank you for your kind words on my blog.

You're so right, there have been a few teasers lately, and I love it because it reminds us that yes, there will be an end eventually. You have a great writing style, you know it??? That was so nice to read ~ ♥ February 23, 2010 at 8:58 AM  

I am soooo glad that someone is enjoying a touch of Spring:) It is still snowing here at the moment:)

I am sorry we do not have that spring feeling here yet. More snow today and very cold. Happy for you though.
