Spring .....

Today was absolutely beautiful. I think I am going to have to change my favorite season to Spring. I love the Fall, but since I have moved to Ohio I have learned to appreciate Spring so much more. In Arkansas you just don't have a true "Winter". It doesn't get too cold, and it hardly ever snows. You get some ice storms and an occasional snow..but nothing like up here.

Snow on the ground for weeks, temperatures in the single digits for weeks, and the grayness of it all.... I'd never experienced it before.

It was in the upper 60's today for the first time in months! I took the girls to the riverwalk and we strolled the path. They loved being outside again just as much a I did.

To help us all get in the mood for the season here's a little movie I put together today when I got home.

All the photos are taken by Brad and I, they are from our garden and barns in our county of Ohio. The music is Appalachian Spring...appropriately.

Enjoy!

I have got to come up there and see your new house and all the work you guys have done on it. I like this slide thing and I will be calling you and harassing you to tell me how to do it, now if only I could take nice pictures like that...

Wow, LeeAndra -

Those are some amazing pictures. The "Chew mail pouch tobacco" was funny. Great flowers, though - it makes me long for spring around here. We had rain last night for the first time in months. Spring is coming...

T - you definitely need to come up, you would love it.

Ian, thanks. Flowers make great subjects. :) I bet you still have some snow hanging around there. I hope you had a great "road trip".
