Spring

One friend had tornado warnings in her area last night and another friend had snow today. After the worst winter with snow since we moved here 7 years ago, I'm glad it wasn't us. I was getting a little jealous when friends were blogging about putting their gardens in and we still had a lot of snow in our gardens. I was also sick of reading blogs that bragged about their nice weather with much higher temperatures. My mom has daffodils up now and our tulips just have a small green part above the ground.
On Easter I heard lots of birds when I woke up. Before this I had just heard one or two birds in the morning, so it was a joyous sound. I just noticed today the grass is finally green. I'm hoping that we get a spring this year and don't just jump ahead to summer! I'm still going to wait more than a month to put my garden in though...

The snow is mostly melted now, thank goodness. By tomorrow it'll all be gone--it's supposed to be sunny and 60. Gotta love this mid-western weather!
