Here we are mid week and into April and signs of Spring slowly arriving on Cape Ann MA. It is so lovely to see signs of green and soon will see lovely flowers blooming in their splendid colors. Nature is always interesting here in New England. Sometimes, we can have all four seasons in one day. How is the weather in your part of the country? Hope it is good.

  4. I could use some illusions at times as reality can be harsh but instead I cling to hope and the belief that it is all in His hands.

  5. Glad that you are seeing signs of spring. The snow has melted here but very little signs of spring yet.
    Art Dog Muse is so cute on the beach.
    Have a great week.

  14. You never disappoint! Beautiful photography of spring bursting forth in your part of the country. ArtMuse Dog looks to be daydreaming of gulls to chase and warmer spring days! Lovely post. Here, we’ve had extreme hot/cold/cool days. Now we are going from beautiful and mild to thunderstorms and much cooler. Our normal here should be much warmer. Look forward to your blooming snaps soon. My favorite part of spring are the flowering bulbs. Daffodils and tulips.
    Have a great day.....

  17. Here in northern Virginia, we keep yo-yo-ing back and forth between the cold and the warm. Today is pretty chilly and by next week I see a 70 degree day in the forecast.

  18. Our dandelions and bradford pears are about spent here in Tulsa. The redbuds are in full bloom. We're getting much needed rain. And my ducks are casting off feathers.
