Spring Dreaming!

There’s something about spring and the newness of life that gives me hope.

The dreariness of winter is put to rest and there’s a feeling of excitement in the air. Lately I’ve sensed a hint of spring on my early morning workouts. Several times my girlfriends and I have stopped just to smell “spring!”

We start dreaming about Spring, where I live, in February.

The crocuses have reappeared. And although I just captured this picture in our front yard, words and pictures can’t portray its beauty.

I can’t wait for this bud to be bursting at its fullest.

The garden beds that lay dormant will soon have life.

The pool will be warm and full of laughter.

We’ll soon catch a whiff of fresh cut grass.

Our animals just love sunshine.

As I dream about spring and long for the warm days of summer, I can’t help but think of the simplicity of the crocuses and bulbs popping out of the ground, and the welcoming sign of spring.

They say to me, “Spring is here – get ready!”

Do you find yourself dreaming and wanting warmer weather like I do?

  4. Thanks for this post! I am holding out hope for spring as we keep getting more and more snow falling on thick (deep!) snowpack already!
    I wanted to know how you feel about having a pool. My husband and I go back and forth every year about installing an above-ground with wrap-around deck for our boys (and us, of course!). Our three boys are still young (under 6!) so we have time to save/think about it/build it… I dream of having pool parties all summer long – and hosting all the boys’ friends and families. I’d love to hear an honest answer about the work that goes into pool setup, winterizing, and summer upkeep. Feel free to just email me when you have time. :)

  6. We have had such a warm winter this year here in Seattle. The daffodil fields by our house bloomed 1 month early this year. This weekend my husband and I went on a couple of hikes over in the Olympic Peninsula in search of waterfalls-We found them. :) Then he timed our day so we could watch the sunset at Ruby beach…If it wasn’t spring I don’t know what it was. Everything is blooming here and our tree pollen count is off the charts. I’m already thinking about what to plant in my garden…So, to answer your question- Yes, I am dreaming of even warmer weather.
    Enjoy those beautiful flowers.

  7. Oh, YES! Great post! I think that somehow, March is the sign of Spring. Same w/ St. Pat’s Day. Must be all that clover! I can’t wait for warmer days, that smell of the ground “waking up” from Winter. Walks & playtime outside, planting, & gardening. Using the BBQ more, opening the windows, & hearing the birds sing!

  10. I do, every year. We always have a warm spell in late January or early February and I just revel in the dirt and the sunshine. Everything is waking up – my daffodils are in full bloom alongside other bulbs and even my roses will not be kept back – they are covered in new growth.

    We installed a new, gi-normous patio last fall – this will be our first full season of really enjoying our backyard space and I cannot wait. We’ve been eating out there already, shivering in our jackets just because WE CAN!

    My late mother loved the garden, and all those years of forcing her grumpy grade-schooler paid off – for now I love it, too! I’ll be forcing my grumpy grade-schooler to join me out there this year, too.

  11. Yes, yes…bring on Spring! I can’t wait to hear all the birdie chirpings, especially the sounds of babies, newly hatched and hungry for food. I love to watch the mother birds teaching their babies how to fly and watching over them as they make their first attempts. I love the flowers and the openness of everything. People have a spring in their step and exercising goes outside. Oh, I love it! Flowers trees in bloom, tulips and daffodils and the vegetable garden lying open and ready for planting.

    God bless!

  12. Oh! Those crocuses!

    Winter is lingering a bit here in North Carolina. I’ve finally made my peace with it. I do love spring, but after spring comes summer, when it’s so very hot here. At that point I’ll wish for one of these cold days. So I’ll hang out here and be grateful for what we’ve got.

    At least that’s my intention!

  13. Absolutely! We don’t even have really cold snowy winters and I still can’t wait for spring. Our plum tree is putting out blossoms and making me smile.

  14. I too am waiting for the warmer, spring weather. I just love spring time and the sunshine the past few days has been wonderful.

    I don’t have any bulbs planted yet, but my daylilies are starting to come through.

  15. I’m not one for promoting my blog in this manner or what have you, but I literally chuckled out loud, due to my last post on my blog. hee hee ^_^
    Let’s just say…we very obviously live in different areas

  16. I can’t wait for Spring! It’s kind of hard to picture it with all the snow around us, but it’s melting (just not fast enough) so hopefully Spring is just around the corner.

    BTW, what kind of camera do you have? I know you posted it once before, but I could search for it. Also, why is your book not available until August?!

  17. Spring…oh what fun when it does arrive! We still have lots of snow here in Nebraska with possibly more to come. So for now, spring is just a dream…but it will come and I will appreciate it so much more for this harsh winter we have had. Thanks Sandi for the lovely reminder!

  18. Yes of course! Spring is such a vibrant time of year with so many colours emerging from the dark wintery beds. The snowdrops are through here now so hopefully spring is on it’s way here too.

  19. Picked one beautiful daffodil out of the yard yesterday, and the warmer weather here has been wonderful!!!We have seen so much rain and cold. More than we have for S. GA in quite some time. Yes, I am dreaming about those springtime days!

  20. I am in desperate need of Spring! I am so sick of all the snow. Today is in the 50’s and I can hardly contain myself! However, the rest of the week should be in the 30’s. Ugh.
    Spring reminds me of Mom. She loved “buttercups”. As a kid we would ride around in the car and see who could spot them first. As an adult, every year I would take Mom a bouquet of buttercups (daffodils) for her kitchen table or desk at work. A simple reminder of a special childhood memory.
    Your pictures are beautiful!
    Blessings!

  23. I do…. I have to be careful not to wish these days away. When the girls are grown…I know I’ll miss them!

    Happy Sunday!

  24. Mmmmm, we canNOT wait. Snow is taking forEVER to melt, here in Jersey. Still, I’m sure the signs are there. Feel inspired to take a walk with my camera, today. Thanks!

  25. Oh absolutely do I ever dream of spring! There is something to peaceful about the coming of new life after a cold, dreary winter. We have been blessed with a couple of days of 60 degree temps and how wonderful they have been! Your words are so beautiful as we await the true arrival of spring.
