After a long, cold, snowy winter, spring is more than welcome.
Yet she is acting shy and holding back. Last night a friend that lives about 15 miles from me reported that it was snowing at her place, and this morning when I went out to milk goats and feed animals the thermometer read 27F.
I long to put my coat and gloves away.
And I am yearning for the grass to grow and for flowers to bloom.
Though the buds on my lilac are beginning to swell a bit, they don't look like blossoming is anywhere near ready to happen.
However, feeling optimistic I filled and hung the hummingbird feeder yesterday.
I want to be ready when they arrive. The charts say that could be in the next two weeks. If I were a Hummingbird I'd wait a bit.
They will get here and yearn, too.
