I’m sure y’all have seen versions of this meme where you live. For many of you, Mud Season replaces The Pollening* and gosh, shouldn’t the welcome of Actual Spring be something good?! Actually proud of myself for the version you see up top because I couldn’t find anyone shouting out Third Winter! so I had to edit another image. The weather forecast I shared with y’all on Friday turned out to be pretty right. We had a glorious weekend – sunny and 70! Then yesterday it was 60. today it was 48 and it rained. and when I took Holly out for her walk this afternoon I saw yellow in all the puddles. The Pollening approaches (Marc already has our porch furniture wrapped – and the cushions are resting up in the basement) likely by the beginning of next week 🙂 So while I have Third Winter to enjoy, I’m knitting from my favorite chair, on that wool sweaterThat’s the first sleeve … I’ve since finished that color block and have one last block of gray plus the ribbing – and another sleeve! – to finish. plus ends. and blocking. Saturday I am gathering outside with my mom, sister, and SIL to commemorate The Year and my goal is to be wearing this sweater. We’ll see.
I did capture a few photos from Spring of Deception on my Sunday morning walk and I saved them up to share with y’all:
These are the cherry trees outside our neighborhood entrance. Just starting to leaf out. (and perhaps causing a bit of pink & green obsession that is gonna be a topic for another post)
Forsythia. always a spring favorite.
Magnolia Jane(? link) This bloom was sitting at the perfect height for a close up photo … and gosh, more pink and green!
I know many of y’all are entering one of the spring seasons … I have so enjoyed seeing crocus, snowdrops, daffodils, and tulips on your blogs!
My question is what makes you know that Actual Spring is here. my answer is that we feel like we can open up the porch (with furniture. and cushions) … hopefully by late April.
*for those of you with mud AND pollen … whoa. I am lifting you up!
