Signs of Spring!!!

While walking last night it was delightful to experience the sights and sounds of spring. This is definitely a season of renewal, especially after the harshness of winter. The weather a balmy 54 degrees at sundown enabled neighbors to come out of their homes to partake in barbequing delicious steaks, which incidentally smelled fabulous wafting throughout the air, walk their dogs or chase howling cats from fences…yes signs of spring are upon us.

So this morning while taking my first sip of coffee and looking through the breakfast room window, I noticed the buds of the maple tree leaves were a bushy red and the faint tint of yellow on the brown forsythia plants were most refreshing after seeing snow on the ground last week.

As I do every year at this time, I grabbed my camera with coffee in hand to take a few pictures of the first signs of spring at Heath!!!

Spring forward!!!

  1. Spring is in bloom here in Chicago and it couldn’t have come soon enough. Spring is actually my favorite season and represents a chance to embrace new starts and the beauty in nature.
