Hello and Happy Tuesday. Thanks for being here! This week’s challenge comes from the amazing J.J. Devine:
Spring is right around the corner. What is your favorite thing about springtime?
It’s hard to name only one thing about spring that’s my favorite. I love everything about it! The temperature warming up so I can lose that sweater. The buds pushing through their now frost-free cover. The bright yellow of the daffodils and the purple, yellow and white crocus (what is the plural of crocus, anyway?). And the beginning of the growing season for the garden.
I don’t have my own garden down here, with the exception of a few herbs. But the farmer’s market down the way is about to burst with fresh corn and tomatoes and so much more. And did I mention fruit? Now, I like apples as much as anyone, but after a winter of very few other choices, I look forward to local peaches and plums and wait – did I forget strawberries? Oh and really fresh asparagus!
I know much of the country is still under the winter clouds, but just remember that all that rain (and even snow) is going to transform the landscape into green any day now.
In the meantime, while you wait for the sun to peek through, how about reading a good book.
And coming this spring…which means soon…
Now let’s hop over to the fabulous Brenda Margriet and see what she loves about spring…
