Signs That It is Near

Last week, we experienced summer weather up here in Canada.
This week it has been cold and wet.
With the possibility of snow this weekend.
Hold me.

The only thing that is keeping me from running away to live in a tropical climate are the signs that warm weather will be here to stay very soon.
New life is showing up everywhere I turn.
Colour is returning to brighten up the dreary landscape.
Nature is waking up and taking a deep breath.
And I am anxiously awaiting the sun and much more colour.
Spring makes me happy.
Summer will make me even happier.

Is it spring where you are yet?
Are there signs that nature is waking up from the cold weather?
Does it make you as happy as it makes me?
Do you feel like running to the hilltops and singing "The Hills are Alive"?

Me too.

*knock wood* I think Spring has sprung here....*ACHOO!!*

Yup, I'm pretty sure it's Spring here as the allergies are kicking in to full gear.

Gorgeous, gorgeous GORGEOUS pictures!!!

Spring has been trying to hang out with us all winter...but it's only been in the last few days that I've started to see blossoms on the trees. Happy sigh. :)

It is spring here in Southern California. The trees are full of blossoms and the weather is starting to warm however we do need more rain. ;)

It's definitely spring here in Southern California. Last week we got a lot of rain, but it's nice and sunny today.

I'm not even convinced we had a winter this year- not that I'm complaining.

Have a great weekend!

We didn't even get the snow we usually get this winter - and the weather lately has been more early summer vs. spring...except for this morning and one morning earlier in the week with freezing temperatures after 80-degree weather just days before. Mother Nature is crazy! :) Your pictures, on the other hand, are brilliant! :)

Spring/Summer has been here for awhile now. LA has a different kind of weather. Today was 88!!! Oy.

Happy weekend.

I'm not in CA like JermicanSpice, but our weather is a lot like theirs.

This is the time of year that I dislike living in Canada the most! I am currently sitting on my couch in fleece pyjamas under a wool blanket with a freezing cold nose and toes. Meanwhile, all of my friends from back home in South Carolina have already started wearing flip flops and are tanning during the day! AAGGHHHHH! Spring can't get here fast enough for me! And if we could just fast forward to Summer, that would be even better!

I love it!

We do have a few buds on the trees now.

Spring is such a tease here. We get a nice, lovely, warm, sunny day and then following it are three or four days or a week of cold, overcast, windy.
