Spring in the Ozarks

It seems like ever since Christmas passed, I have been eagerly awaiting the coming of spring.  For this Arizona girl, cold, grey days of bare trees and dismal light are just about the most depressing thing ever.  I tried really hard to delight in the season, but now that spring is here I am SO glad!  Spring is especially marvelous here because it is so different from spring in Arizona.  Every new bloom, every greening tree is a new wonder to me.  The humidity here makes the smells of spring very noticeable, and I feel like spring is just all around me, warming me to my very core.  As I let the vitamin D soak through my skin, and breathe in the fresh, new scents I feel refreshed and revived, and it’s wonderful.

Without further ado, here are a few pictures I’ve been taking of spring here in the Ozarks:

Andy says these little beauties are the first signs of Spring, and they are covering the hills around our house!

Magical dogwoods…








I’m also very excited because I have little seedlings growing…maybe I’ll FINALLY get to have an amazing garden!  I sure hope so, at least.  :)
