{in the magical words of e. e. cummings}
our world is mud-lucious and puddle-wonderful!

Oh sure,
some of you might have blossoms and butterflies.
Here in New England, we've learned to count our blessings when there is melting.
And white puffy clouds in a blue sky.

In other news,
the buds are getting "so big" you can even seen them reflected in the puddles!
Progress people. Progress.

Lots of buds here too, but no blooms as yet. Melting is good! :)

Nicki said...

cool reflection. We are slow to budding this year (might have something to do with the weekly snows).

Tamar SB said...

It's coming. Slowly. Hopefully yesterday's wind storm was the end of the bitter stinking cold. I am SO ready for a change in seasons!

Kim Cunningham said...

Any day now....yes those buds are huge if I can see them reflected in the puddle, lol! I'm still waiting for my now over 100 monarch cat eggs to hatch, which has been slowed down by a drop in temperatures. But that's okay, I'm not quite ready-yikes! The good news is, Spring has never ever been MIA. ;)

Mother Nature can't decide between winter and spring here in Texas. But I'll take any warmth I can get, at this point! Gorgeous pictures.

Simply beautiful!! Thank you for sharing this with us!

Such beautiful pictures! Spring here in Utah is very temperamental. One day the sun is shinning and it's 70 degrees. The next day it's freezing cold and snowing!

Linda said...

Our spring is late but we are seeing some buds.

Mama Kat said...

We are in full cherry blossom bloom mode! I'll enjoy double as much for the both of us, but you're definitely making progress!
