Spring has sprung

Well, it appears that Spring has arrived here in little 'ole Tallahassee. Aside from a little thunderstorm activity on Sunday, this weekend was absolutely perfect, and all the signs point to a new season.

  • Our azaleas began blooming seemingly overnight Friday, just in time for the official start.

  • The yard-salers were out in full force Saturday morning, and yes, I was one of them.
  • The Bradford Pear trees all over town look amazing, with their tiny little white flowers.

  • Easter dresses have taken over the little girl sections of Kohl's and Wal-Mart.
  • And finally, on Saturday, I spent a while watching three brand-new lizards explore our porch. Watching them brought me back to the fond childhood memories of my sisters pet lizards, Larry & Maggie. Larry & Maggie were married and although they were "not domesticated", that never stopped Barbie from talking to them, catching them, and wearing them on her ears. 

All of these signs of new life. I love the signs of new life.
