spring has sprung


My original title for this post was going to be "spring is springing" but it's been at least a week since I took this picture. Most of the blossoms have given way to the little green leaves of spring. It's funny . . . I know that is going to be summer here soon. But in my mind I still think, it's September, that means back to school and autumn leaves and football season and soon there will be snow. I guess it's hard to get my brain to acclimate. One of the hardest things--not having fall leaves for Halloween! To me that's so much a part of that holiday. And the crispness of the air during Thanksgiving, and if you're lucky--snow on Christmas. I've been down here almost two years now, you'd think I would be adjusted, but I'm not.

I think I would go nuts having reverse seasons like that... I'm a gardener so I rely on time of the seasons for everything...

pretty picture, n! it is weird that we're in different seasons, different days, different everything. sometimes it makes me feel even farther away from you...
