The folklore of 21 March being the "first day of spring" persists but in our sunshine state of Florida, signs of spring appear long before the middle of March.
the unseasonable cold continues here, we are at 36 today but even with this there are many signs of spring. The sun peeked through our jungle backyard and I found it is very difficult to shoot facing the sun, but this photo suits my purpose today.
this is a photo of our loblolly pine, we have 3 of them and bought this house because of all the trees. this photo was taken last year. i am using it to show how God's sunshine changes the way we look at things.
This is the same tree, same view two days ago when the spring sun struggled against the cold and lit up the trunk and limbs of the tree. God's spotlight told me Spring is on the way.
Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn. ~Quoted by Lewis Grizzard in Kathy Sue Loudermilk, I Love You
Life of a simple weed is beautfiul when the sun lights it up. This vine will cover everything in its path, but in this photo is quite beautiful. the sun decorates the base of the pine. I found something in the tree that I have never noticed until 2 weeks ago.
Coming Soon at a blog near you. A secret of our pine tree.It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain
Hope this makes a little fun for those of you with Spring Fever. What is this. answer tomorrow.
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. ~Anne Bradstreet
