This is the day!

Today is the day that so many of us have been anticipating - the first day of Spring!  At least, according to the calendar, that is.  That may be difficult for some of you to believe, especially with your ground still under feet of snow! 

We are ready to greet the new season!

We've been waiting for you!

Of course, we just heard on the long-range forecast that next week may have more winter-like temperatures.  This winter just doesn't want to quit, it seems.

Also, this is a special day for another reason!  Today is Country Man's birthday!  Happy Birthday, Country Man!  We are really happy to have you in the family!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. Yes, our first day of Spring and the day after promise to be lovely, but those pesky days afterward seem to tell a different story. No matter, though, as we know it will eventually become warm ALL the time, and then we'll have a different set of complaints! Happy Birthday to Country Man from me, too. He certainly has been a wonderful addition to the family!

  2. Yeah for spring and for your County Man's birthday! Wishing him health and happiness!


  3. Birthday blessings to the countryman! Happy 1st day of Spring! I think Mother Nature missed the memo in our area too.

  10. Happy birthday to Country Man. We had a perfect early spring day today. Just praying that it lasts. Have a great Friday!

  11. I like your Spring sign, Nellie. It has been cold and snowy here. Spring really feels like a joke so far here.
    Let's pray for a wonderful, warm Spring for all of us- xo Diana
