More signs of Spring!


We are seeing more signs of Spring here in Michigan! The weather has been nice, our temperature made it to a little over 70 degrees on Friday!The leaves are starting to pop out on our bushes out front.
These little flowers are called Grecian Windflowers. They are grown from bulbs and come up every year. They are quite small but add a nice touch of color.

Here are the daffodils blooming along the side of the yard. They always seem so cheerful and do a great job of announcing that Spring is here!

It's so exciting, isn't it? My shrubs all went from brown and bald on Thursday to having actual small leaves today. They were as ready for this as I have been!

I am glad that it is finally getting warmer where you are. I love your little Grecian Windflowers. Just recently on our walk, my neighbor has been pointing them out to me. She finally found some bulbs at a Farmer's Market. I must look for some because they are so pretty. They look pretty along side the daffodils.

I can't wait to hear all about it when you get back.

And Mari- your announcement of Spring's arrival makes me giddy.

Two days and counting. ENJOY every second with Andy. I'll keep your family in prayer as you travel to and from.
