Oh Spring! Where ART thou???

Good morning,

Today's creation expresses my frustration with the idea that, officially, it is spring, but the days keep taking one step forward and two steps back.

Last week, we had some beautiful spring weather, and then we had snow ... right in the middle of it! It's like it can't make up its mind.

Around us, we have flowering white trees, and small trees are bursting with that fresh green color of small, lime-green leaves exploding forth.

Yesterday, it rained ... and rained ... and rained, and the temperatures dropped again.

Walking from the parking lot into work each morning can be maddening. It's beautiful on the trek in, and miserable on the journey out!

The weather in my fair city used to be so wonderful! A hard snow winter about every 4 to 6 years, but the last 3 or 4 have been icy, snowy, and slippery. Everybody is talking about the change.

So the colors in my pictures are my yearnings for color ... for brightness and feeling cheerful. And the darkness is for the winter that continues to put out it's hand, and try to snatch it all away!

Spring days may come, but they will quickly yield to the hot, hot of summer days, which pleases many. I don't necessarily like hot hot ... but would love to feel the freshness of spring ... for just a little while before the heat of dog day afternoons.

I heard one person in the elevator yesterday, say, "I put the flowers out ... I take them back in! It just can't seem to make up its mind what to do out!"

Oh well. What are you going to do?

Have a great day!
