TINY signs of SPRING!

 

Photograph by Joni Staples (C) 2011


If you look REAL hard, you can see the tiny PURPLE flowers.

I must have looked pretty funny with my big butt in the air as the cars whizzed by! I was trying to get as close as the camera would allow.... just hoping that you would be able to see the itsy-bitsy, PURPLE flowers.

It may not be much, but at this point, I’ll take whatever I can get....

It’s a sign that SPRING is coming!

And I ,  ♥ for one ♥,  AM THRILLED! ☺

OH. I can't wait for the flowers to start coming around! We are looking at more snow this next week.... :( I'm not sure whether to laugh hysterically or cry.

Joni - I wish I could see some of those here...just lots of white stuff still...but I did have a great time in Dallas last week!  My daughter and I were walking around in short sleeves and sandals...at one point I said to her "do you feel kind-of underdressed?"  Everyone else had on sweaters and jackets.  :D

Joni, What a great photo and great encouragement that spring is coming. I was in CA and made a connection in Houston. It was 80 degrees there. Got home to low 30's and snow. I needed your photo to encourage me.

Hello Joni and I had to laugh at Michael's comment above and this sentence ...

I must have looked pretty funny with my big butt in the air as the cars whizzed by!
