Spring in the Prairie is a much anticipated “event”. The winter months can be long and harsh. Everything outdoors is “asleep” during the deep freeze. Though one is quite comfortable indoors, the first signs of thawing and life outside is indeed welcomed.
Our forsythia bush is one of the very first signs of Spring. It brings forth a brilliant display of color that lights up a corner of our yard. It signifies the end of winter and the beginning of warmer weather ahead. Definitely something to look forward to.
Slowly but surely the Prairie will soon be green again. The emerging buds on the trees seem to appear almost overnight. They first look like a light green fuzz. Before you know it, the leaves are fully formed and the branches are once again densely covered. God’s handiwork is truly amazing!
The weather has been really wonderful this past week and so I went around the neighborhood armed with my camera. I took lots of pictures and short clips to capture the sights and sounds of early Spring in the Prairie. Please enjoy…..
Let’s put the kettle on, it is time for tea! 😎
