spring:  to rise leap or move; a season between winter and summer

It is that time of year where we come out from our winter blues, shed the heavy clothes and bask in the warm weather.  I love this time of year – especially in Florida where the plants are bursting with color and the humidity is still tolerable.  A time where we see the annual migration of different birds that come and feast on our backyard bird feeders (our little version of a birdy bed and breakfast!).   Our year round residents of cardinals, chickadees, doves and wrens are joined with yellow finches, indigo buntings and an occasional robin and oriole.  The bluebirds are checking our the birdhouses in their yearly voyage for a home to nest.

In spring we see the leaving of snowbirders as they head back north and the arrival of spring breakers searching for sun and sand.  It gives us March Madness (can my alma mater UCONN make it to the final four? I am hoping so) and the opening day of baseball (will the Mets still be in contention in May>….well, hope will only go so far!!)

So, I hope this spring finds you well with feelings of freshness and renewal.  Here is a little card I made to get you in the mood for spring.  It was colored with prisma pencils.
