Note to Spring

Dear Spring,

I have missed you.
You warm my soul.
You make me happy.
You are yellow, and green, and pink. And Blue. My favorites.
I am watching you as your little buds are starting to blossom into leaves, and flowers.
I love that you allow me to go jacketless.
I can open my sunroof when you are around, until you rain into my car - then I don't like you as much, but I get over it.
You are good because I can launch my maniacal, winter-crazed children into your warm, backyard arms.
You lovingly let my dog lay golden in your suns' rays. Then she gets fleas. And I am bummed that you are here. But again, I get over it.
You make my birds sing. And my heart.
I spy on the new life happening in my tiny, ancient birdhouses. I love this.
I have vowed to take more photos of you this year. And I will save them for next winter when I will surely miss for you again.
Thank you for coming back.
I have missed you.
I hope you like these photos.
I love you Spring.



I had to include this last photo even though it's pretty crappy. As far as I know this is a tadpole egg sac. We found this on a little jaunt through Dinosaur State Park in Rocky Hill, CT. It was taken through the water, hence the cloudiness. You see, me and tadpoles, we have a thing. We're buds. Always have been, always will be. They are my favorite little slimy things in this entire universe. Especially when they start to get little legs. I think they are wonderful and the fact that we spotted this little egg sac this year warmed my heart more than anyone will ever know. Someday I'll tell you the story, or just go ask my mom. She'll tell you the story.
