Looking for Spring

This time of year is challenging for me. I struggle with the blah's. I find myself leaning toward the whiny side of life - not a becoming state to be in!!!

After snow earlier this week and a sky thickening with heavy clouds due to an oncoming rainstorm today the blah's have been hitting hard.

So in an effort to ward off the whinies I bundled up Esther and went out in search of Spring and look what I found!!!:

A cute little Tete d' Tete Daffodil about to open
My dear Betty Corning Clematis breaking through and beginning her climb up my front porch
My Bluebells sending up their tender leaves out by my bedroom window
My spade forgotten in my veggie garden. He will be put to much use before too long!!!
I don't have much out there right now as last fall I pulled out my perennial beds to start over in the Spring. Weeds had just had their nasty way with my beds and I decided a fresh new start was needed. Getting out and exploring today has gotten my mind in gear and my fingers itching to get in the dirt. NOW I can get out my seed catalogs and begin the fun of garden dreaming!!
Isaiah 61:11 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

Hi I am back to say Hi..I left a comment first on your yogurt post. I am so looking forward to spring! I can not wait to see the new buds on the trees and bushes! I have asked Nathan to take me outside for a walk tomorrow...a careful, little one...I have to be careful because my incision has been bleeding a little bit. We are just going to walk to the chicken pen and back...I know...I know you must be a redneck if you look forward to walking to the chicken pen after surgery! But some fresh air (the air on the way, not the air in the chicken house!) is needed right now. I am hoping to see some of those signs of spring very soon!
