See that tiny speck of yellow in all of that brown?
The first daffodils have bloomed!
Break out the jelly beans! Dig out the Easter baskets! Get those toe nails painted! It's time for tank tops! (Or not. My arms are quite jiggly from my winter-snacking and hibernation-from-exercise I seem to take every January and February...)
Spring is here!
And just in case you forgot what spring looks like in Missouri, take a gander below to see what is coming.
If you have never been to Shaw Nature Preserve in the month of March, it is spectacular.
All of God's glory (or most of it), I think, is in that place for a few short weeks every spring as every living thing wears its Sunday best.
Wasn't that Grace a cutie?
Oh darn it. Now I have spent most of my morning trying to get this post out reminiscing through old pictures. Is there a self help group for this?
This one spectacular spring day during the daffodil visit,
we took our cute friends.
Caroline, Lizzy, and Jordan.
Aren't those fabulous names for little girls?
And look at this handsome little devil from another spring visit.
Isn't that a magnificent Magnolia tree behind him?
(And that other cute girl named Evie too busy chomping on an apple to notice I was trying to take a picture).
I love spring.
Hang tight people.
P.S. Plan your trip to Shaw now.
Better yet, call me first since we live five minutes away and I might just make you lunch after your visit.
